    Story
    (111)

    Before Madeleine Albright turned twelve, her life was shaken by the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia—the country where she was born—the Battle of Britain, the near total destruction of European Jewry, the Allied victory in World War II, the rise of communism, and the onset of the Cold War. Albright's experiences, and those of her family, provide a lens through which to view the most tumultuous dozen years in modern history.

    Jean says: "The price of Democracy"
    "Very timely."

    Where does Prague Winter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one that will be recommended and reread. It ranks among my favorites.
    Albright weaves the story of her early life and that of her family with events of the war years. The historical portion illuminates a part of history with which I've been only vaguely familiar with descriptions that are well-researched and presented clearly and in a balanced manner. The narrative is compelling and the message is timely.

    A Signature Performance: Oscar nominee and passionate vegan Casey Affleck highlights the more-relevant-than-ever issues of business ethics and food production in Upton Sinclair’s meatpacking industry bombshell.

    Kamigaeru says: "Caveat emptor: Powerful book, subpar narration"
    "Production flaw"
    Overall

    I've downloaded this book to two separate iPods. In each, when I reach a certain point in the narrative, my iPod shuts down. I've reported this to Audible early this year. They didn't seem much interested in correcting the problem. I would not recommend anyone download and try to play this book.
