    "Grating narrator!"

    I wasn't able to get past the narrator's voice! Otherwise, it was a truly harrowing story worth the listen.

    "Deeply moving account of a Holocaust survivor"
    If you could sum up My Brother's Voice in three words, what would they be?

    I think I would say this is the BEST biography I have ever EVER read. Absolutely awe inspiring account of a young boy during the Holocaust. I have read and reread and listened to it on audible. I have passed it around and those who have read it say similar things

    totally useless with a new book in my hands. . .unfortunately libraries take a lot of space, which i don't have. . . i have an hour's commute to work, so. . . o. . .0. . . here i am. . . i like nonfiction, but an occasional good novel is nice, too. i'm told that i like "heavy" reading. . .maybe. . .but i also can lose myself in a little light reading as well. . .

    Story
    "A good book ruined by terrible narration."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I can't think of anyone to whom I would recommend this book through Audible. As is to be expected of any book detailing personal experience in the Holocaust, this one is painful and very disturbing. Its downfall is completely in the narrator. This man simply did not have a feel for the content. I tried to listen to it several times, and finally just gave up, because I could not get past the narrator's poor inflection and general interpretation of the text. His intonation and expression were completely and perpetually out of sync with the words he was reading. I would have exchanged the book if I could have, but it was not eligible for return. Therefore, I must consider this as $$ lost, and will get the book from the library to read. Don't waste your $$ on it here.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator of a book with such heavy subject matter needs to have a feel for what he is reading. Tragic occurrences and very painful experiences should be read only by someone who has empathy for the plight of the writer.

    Story
    "Important story but written without details"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. The story was written like a TV serial - very episodic with no details to knit the story together. The best part of the entire audiobook was the 15 minute interview with the author at the end. However, the person interviewing seemed inept but Stephen Nasser was great. The narrator was reading the book like it was a Lassie episode - full of exclamations, child-like not conveying the serious side of the holocaust. I thought at first the narrator was a woman and was confused as to the main characters gender.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    No reaction


    Did Maxwell Glick do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Not the right book for him to narrate.


    Do you think My Brother's Voice needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I would choose another holocaust survivor book - there are many wonderful ones.

    "Heartbreaking story"

    I loved how the story was written. But I didn't always like the narrator's voice in the dialogues. And I would have like him to actually know how words are pronounced in Hungarian. And especially the names of the people and the city of Budapest.

    "Moving"

    I don't normally give 5 stars as that would make the book perfect. However, this is one of the few narrative stories I just could not put down, so is deserving 5 stars? In 1943 the Nazis invaded Hungary. This true story tells of how a13 year old survived hard labour, starvation, brutality, seeing family murdered and his hero brothers death. Using inner strength and his brother voice he managed to move on with his life to tell his story.

    "not enjoying it"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I don't like how the story is narrated. It feels like west side story style acting which doesn't fit this book at all.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Brother's Voice?

    Haven't finished it unfortunately


    Would you be willing to try another one of Maxwell Glick’s performances?

    Perhaps for a lighthearted story


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    After reading many holocaust memoirs, I'm sure the that the story itself is a worthy read
