"This is a poised, hair-raising debut." (Publishers Weekly)
As I am from a generation that didnt have to live through this era I have always had an interest in both sides of the story. Try as I might I couldnt get into this book. I kept coming back to it hoping I was in a better frame of mind to listen but eventually I gave up.
I think the narrator was wrong- she sounded like a litlle girl and which was off-putting as well as very irritating. It got to the point where i didnt care what happened anymore !! which is quite disturbing as it sounded like a story that needed to be told.
I will just have to rely on reviews and hopefully be able to work out what happened.
Really enjoyed this book. It really gets you thinking...a good storyline following the lives of a mother and her daughter..as well as the horrific stories of the 2nd world war and the effect it had on everyone involved.
"Those Who Save Us"
An excellent, gripping, thought provocking 'story book'. My only problem with it was some of the historical facts - the American & Russians liberating Germany and not a British Regiment in sight - but I won't hold that against the author, as the rest of the book was superb.
