    "My review"

    I really enjoyed reading this book, and having the audio really helped me understand the characters. There are differences from the audio and the book, but not to bad to where I lost my spot.
    Over all, I enjoyed the book and would recommend it.

    "Fantastic!"

    Picoult is a fantastic writer. Her descriptions make you feel as if you are in the middle of the story. I did not know what to expect with this book. I am glad I "read" it through audible.

    "I loved this book."

    I'm addicted to audio books and this is one of the best I've listened to. It made me think about the holocaust and the survivors in a much more personal way.

    "Enlightening story and very good narrators."

    I listen to many books. I have started choosing books with multiple narrators. This book came to life through the narrators. I felt as if I were in the periphery of this drama.

    "A real page turner"

    Enjoyed this book but wasn't too impressed/satisfied with ending.

    Gripping in many places but couldn;t really connect with character Sage.

    "Ambitiously promises a lot which it can’t quite de"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a moving account of the holocaust with excruciating attention to the horror- the subject matter is dealt with better then might be expected. However, I was desperate for the book to do more that it managed to achieve- it promises in its subplots and undertones to explore the monstrous nature of humanity and unpack the complexity of forgiveness and death. However, these themes never seem to quite get out of the box. I failed to understand the ending and the decisions made by the central characters left me back tracking through the story to see whether it was my mistake to find it baffling. This book promises much that it can’t quite deliver, tackling an incredibly difficult subject it falls short of its own very high ambitions and, a victim of its own ambition, left me a little bewildered and disappointed.

    "A Page Turner"

    Whilst its definately a page turner that will have you listening way into the night its not my favourite Picoult book because I failed to relate to the main characters. I found Sage quite whiney but then she was in a difficult position.



    You think you know it all but you will be led up different paths before finally it all becomes clear. Well worth listening to but somewhat different to what we have come to expect from Jodi Picoult. The subject matter is difficult and an horrendous period in time which she deals with very well.



    The ending had to be a difficult one but I felt it to be the best we could expect.



    I loved listening to this book as the narrators really bought it to life, totally first class reading.

    "Moving, but predictable"

    The writing and narration were beautiful. Minka's retelling of her experiences of the Holocaust was heartbreaking and moving. Much of the rest was entirely predictable and cliched.

    "Good, but..."

    Being a great fan of Jodi Picoult, again, this book is excellent if somewhat terrifying, and like all others I have read by her, extremely well researched.
    However, I found the voice of Leo (Fred Berman) hugely distracting and irritating because of the sharp intake of breath before each sentence. The other narrators were good.

    "Simply The Best Book I have read!"

    From the beginning it hooks you. The characters are fascinating and I honestly felt I was missing them when I had to stop listening to the book inbetween opportunities to listen. I don't want it to end. Harrowing at times, addictive yes, beautiful throughout. Thank you JP!

    Story
    "Major flaw in the plot"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not, and this is a first with a Picoult book. The premise the book was based on was flawed. At no point did Sage ask "Why can't you kill yourself? Why do I have to bear the guilt/responsibility?" If he wanted to die, due to the guilt of his actions, why would she facilitate his death, enabling him to continue to spread his evil to another person?


    What could Jodi Picoult have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I did learn things about the holocaust and it was well written and flowed well. However I just couldn't accept the key premise of the storyline.


    Any additional comments?

    First Picoult book I've read which made me feel it was written to meet a deadline, not because there was a story waiting to be told.
