I first read this book for a college class and liked the story so tried the audio version. I've twice listened to this book on audio. In this version, Alison Larkin (narrator) really makes this story come to life!
I always thought the story was predictable, but good. This version is worth a listen.
I like historical fiction because it exposes me to cultures and experiences in a way that interests and captivates me. This story gives me that feeling of understanding by living the experience rather than learning abstract details.
I love her interpretation of the characters voices. She represents each personality - perfectly
I wanted to listen to the story in several sittings...It takes a bit of concentration and focus to follow the details.
Constantly interesting. Makes me examine my habbits and morals.
I want so much to discuss this book.
I would try another book from Upton Sinclair or Paul Boehmer.
I went on the journey with this character, through almost unbearable desperation, depression and tragedy...why?? I took the journey, felt the misery so I could be transformed by it. This particular story REQUIRES an enormously uplifting and motivating moral.
Yes, I have already recommended to friends.
I could not anticipate any of this. The story captivated me! I replayed portions of this book just to be able to wrap my mind around the circumstances described in the story. Loved the entire story.
Not sure, the story was very interesting but I did not read it.
Yes. Many moments in this book were quite moving. An entire nation held captive. Uncertainty of situation, status and even family loyalty.
