Very slow moving book. I probably would've liked this book better 20 or 30 years ago when I found such undying love more believable. In addition, the female lead (Lenka) supposedly loved her family so much that she wouldn't leave them but after they got to the ghetto there was not much mention of them..especially her father...at least not until those characters were needed again to evoke more emotions.
I liked George Guidall's performance well enough but found Suzanne Toren's performance overly dramatic. Her intonations made EVERY sentence drip with import....and not ALL of the sentences needed to be that dramatic IMO.
This book was a lot longer than it needed to be. At first I didn't think I was going to make it through to the end. In the end however, I was really absorbed in the book and couldn't wait to get to the end of the book to have the mystery revealed. Now that I am finished, I must admit that the way the author revealed the story was very well done.....but I still think the book didn't need to be so long!
Like another reviewer, I thought this book would do more to lead one through the steps of meditation, instead of just telling the listener that meditation is good for one. Disappointed.
