    Julie Orringer's astonishing first novel, eagerly awaited since the publication of her heralded best-selling short-story collection, How to Breathe Underwater, is a grand love story set against the backdrop of Budapest and Paris, an epic tale of three brothers whose lives are ravaged by war, and the chronicle of one family's struggle against the forces that threaten to annihilate it.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Invisible Bridge the most enjoyable?

    The story is told through the journey of one Hungarian Jewish family from comfortable assimilation to persecution and devastation at the hands of both the Germans and Hungarians. It is exquisitely written.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was heartbreaking, describing the ruthless brutality and unfairness of the oppressors. It was rich in both specific details of events, and in the emotional and psychological journeys of the protagonists.


    What about Arthur Morey’s performance did you like?

    His sensitive reading made each character distinct.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, though I couldn't wait to get back to it once I put it down.


    Any additional comments?

    A superb book. One of the finest books about the Holocaust.
