One of my top favorites.
I love to read books that expand my worldview by taking me inside another culture. This was a very engrossing, well-written and narrated story, and I loved it. I read and listen to audiobooks a lot on my travels, and I'd definitely recommend this one to others!
I just finished listening to this audiobook, and am sitting here with tears in my eyes. This is the most moving story I have read in a long time....I just couldn't put it down. Truly wonderful story and performance!
Right up there!
Never!! I loved this story, but I have to agree with many others that her narration is awful. I go through at least an audiobook every week, so I think I'm a good judge of this. She made Ana sound like a Valley Girl, and her male voices sound absolutely phoney and unbelievable. Lucky for her that these books are such a great read, but unfortunately she really detracts from a more enjoyable read.
I loved the weaving of history and the very well-drawn characters in this book. I did not know much at all about what had actually happened at Masada (I'd heard of the term, but did not know what had taken place there), and this totally brought that story to life and I learned so much about it. It's such a beautiful piece of literature, I loved everything about this book. The narration was absolutely superb. A definite must to read!
