The transitions between the different years was very confusing for me. There was a lot of jumping back and forth thru the years and it took a little time to realize we were in another time jump.
The characters were very well thought out and well developed. I enjoyed how each character grew as the novel progressed.
While the story was enjoyable, the narrator nearly bored me to death! Her voice was so monotone that if I attempted to listen before bed, I would fall asleep within minutes.
Good as as book, not sure if I would like this as a movie though.
I would just say it was time spent. This was neither a bad story nor a good one. The beginning was strong but the end was weak. I literally cringed at some points in the story because it was so absurd. But if you love Lifetime, you'll probably love this book!
This was my first Harlan Coben book so I would give him another shot. I would probably be more interested in his earlier works.
Sure. He didn't put me to sleep so that's good!
Yea, it inspired me to avoid romance books disguised as mysteries.
This is the true definition of an audiobook! I am so glad I decided to use a credit for this! The narrators really captured the essence of the characters and kept me listening.
The heart of this story is definitively Minka's grim tale of life in the Jewish ghetto and concentration camps. I liked the contrast in her personal story and Josef's personal story of that same time period.
The narrators brought the story to life. I think they made it more realistic. I felt as if I was in the story myself.
"Forgive or forget?"
I'm not really good at tag lines!
I've only read a few other Jodi Picoult books, but she holds true to form in this novel and she doesn't disappoint. I admire books that dive into history and the extensive research it must have taken to complete.
