Publisher's Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Anna Funder's All That I Am, a powerful love story that tells the heroic and tragic true story of the German resistance. read by Judy Bennett and Saul Reichlin. One September morning, elderly Ruth Wesemann wakes to the sound of a parcel being delivered to her door. Inside she finds a tattered little notebook. Opening its delicate pages she meets with a flood of memories...

It's 1933 and she is back in her light-filled flat in Berlin. Hans is making caipirinhas, snow falls outside the kitchen window, and Hitler is making his first speech as Chancellor of Germany. Her life and those of her tight-knit group of friends are about to change beyond all recognition. Having dedicated themselves to resisting the Nazi's rise, they have become hunted outlaws overnight. Fleeing the country, Ruth and Hans find refuge in a basement flat in Bloomsbury, but inspired by Ruth's fearless cousin Dora, they defy the conditions of their visas and risk being sent back to Germany in order continue their dangerous resistance work. But with each breathtaking act of courage and every person that they trust, they cannot help but risk betrayal and deceit. And then, one day, they face the chilling realisation that Hitler's reach extends much further than they had thought, even to London itself. Inspiring, tragic and based on real events, All That I Am is a masterful and devastating novel of bravery and betrayal, of the risks and sacrifices that people endure to protect their beliefs and of discovering remarkable heroism hidden in the most unexpected of places.

    "A Great Listen"

    This is a great book and I wholeheartedly recommend it. It unfolds a fascinating and always gripping story and is very thought provoking in the issues it raises through its subject matter - refugees, resistance and collaboration as Hitler came to power. The author also had insights into old age which I though were interesting and perceptive. It was beautifully read by both readers - I just had to adjust to the fact that Saul Reichlin was not reading The Girl With Dragon Tattoo. It made me think of The Glass Room by Simon Mawer - also set before and during World War 2 and another 5 star listen.

    "Brilliant"

    Unfortunately, I think that like me there many people from the "allied" nations are quite ignorant of the stories about ordinary Germans who resisted the Nazi regime - especially like those in this book who tried to warn France, Britain and America etc about Hitler before they were willing to listen. This is a beautifully written tale of moral courage, love, desire and betrayal.

    "Beautifully written book"

    If you have an interest in human courage and the lesser known facts about Nazi Germany before the outbreak of WWII, this is one for you. Anna Funder writes beautifully and her characters are explicit and complete. This book draws you into the lives of Ruth, Toller, Dora and Hans as they attempt to fight the Nazi regime and enlighten Europe to the very real threat that is about to devour the world. An excellent book that I highly recommend.

    "Measured, evocative storytelling. A must read."

    All That I Am has all the necessary thrills and spills of your average pre-war espionage novel. But it so much more than that. Based on a true story, it sketches out the years leading up to the second world war and the attempts of a band of German resistance fighters to stop the Nazis rise to power. What makes it such a special book is that Anna Funder never sensationalises her subject, she just tells it like it is (or was). And it's all the more heartbreaking and devastating because of it.
