gotta listen to this book to enjoy .. don't just read it .. An Amazing performance !
I have been hooked on audio books since 1990!
After all the stellar reviews, I really expected to love this book, but I stopped listening after the first 45 minutes. It just didn't engage me at all, nor was it what I expected. I just couldn't get excited by the characters, although the readers were quite good. The whole concept of a former SS officer wanting to repent at an advanced age didn't work for me.
I found the story so intriguing. Jodi Picoult's books always give different points of view. Her books bring out so many emotions. Hearing the story from the point of view of a holocaust victim was difficult at times. Her stories always have great twists and any fan of her's will not be disappointed.
Any of Jodi Picoult's books. I also can compare it to "Sarah's Key", which is another wonderful story.
I was really moved by Sage's Grandmother's story. There were so many emotions. I even laughed when she helped her sick friend, Daria, by pulling out her tooth and made an ironic joke.
I think there was a lot of wisdom with the whole "forgiveness theme".
I loved everything, a great story, terrific narration
The interweaving of different stories
The fact that the characters were clearly recognisable by the different narrators
I was very moved by the eternal themes of the darkness within all of us and the possibility of redemption
Can't recommend it highly enough, I was left bereft that it had finished
Yes! Different narrators read for various characters. I believe it added even more depth to the story plot. The plot itself is fantastic!
I found myself listening to this book every possible second from beginning to end. I wanted so badly to know what would happen next. I experienced a wide variety of emotion during this book. Jodi Picoult did not disappoint.
Yes, in fact I am listening to it for the second time now. I wanted to hear all the details again.
I liked the stories of the survivors of the Holocaust - their courage, and pride and perserverence.
I enjoyed the woman who was Minka - she had a beautiful accent.
The best moment in the book for me was when Minka escaped.
Yes, definitely! The story itself was marvelous, but the performances by the readers were so wonderful, it was such a tremendous experience. I never expected to love this book so much.
It seems unique to me, and maybe that's why I loved it. I can't think of another book like it that I've read.
They were spot on, and just added so much to the character's personalities. I listen to books while in my car, then pick up where I left off at home with the books on Kindle, and I have to admit that the readers give so much more to the story than when I'm just reading. It's like listening to a movie.
Yes, but that would have been a physical impossibility!
Just that I really highly recommend it for anyone. The Holocost should never be forgotten, and this book makes it understandable from several perspectives. It's just a great read.
I enjoyed the book but struggled with the ending it was a little too contrived for me.
Absolutely, I'm listening to, The Pact now.
I'm happily married 28 years with 4 children and 1 grandson. I have been so blessed with Audible. Who needs a TV <grinning>
This entire series ranks among my favorites.
All of the characters were well developed with Sage being my favorite.
Good job well done. It was all taking place in my head. They made it easy to visualize. My heart aches. I cried and laughed out loud. This book gives a lot to think about.
I would put my head set on click play and be busy in the garden or other chores. I was so tuned into the book that I wasn't aware of just how much I was accomplishing. Thank you Jodi!
Yes, and I plan on it. There is so much depth to her writing in this book. Normally the way she expounds on a description of a word or feeling comes across as a little cheesy in her other books, but in this book they were perfect and added so much to this poignant and heartbreaking story of so much loss and pain.
The final discovery of the journal. I can't say more without giving it away.
How does it end?
