Amazing to see what some people endured and how they overcame. Great story, while learning history at the same time!
I really enjoyed the book and was surprised by the ending. I can totally see Hollywood making a movie out of it. Kept me interested all the way.
Collin Firth brought the characters to life and the author has a creative flair with a pen, but the book was so uneventful. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen, but the plot plodded along keeping me in depressed mode. A lot of book about, well...not much.
A fiction loosely based on some real characters and events, this was an interesting book. I like a book that inspires me to learn by looking up the actual characters, places and event. The author did a lot of research.
The book is well-written and Kate Winslet is wonderful as a narrator which is why I downloaded the book, but even a good narrator couldn't make the plot less of a downer. Warning: The story is depressing.
