I loved this book! It was unusual, smart and just plain fun to listen to. I recommended this to our book club just a a light change of pace.
I was excited to start this book thinking it would give another take on WW2. Listening to the narrator became very distracting in the middle of the book when she would pointedly stop to quote a diary or journal from someone who was in Warsaw during that time. Horrible, Horrible events..... but the value of this story in relating this important history got lost in how the Zookeepers Wife was written and then read.
My husband and I are listening to Brother Fish, downloaded because we have been Bryce Courtney fans for years! Listening to this book with a narrator like Humphrey Bower is one of the best experiences I have had as a long time Audible subscriber. Listening to this is an investment in history, in character development and, as usual for Courtney, a wonderful story.
