What made the experience of listening to The Green Ember the most enjoyable?

The whole family has enjoyed listening to the adventures of Heather & Picket. The youngest two (ages 2 and 3), wander in and out, but it holds the attention of the older ones (ages 6-11). It made for a great rainy day! I'm looking forward to another rainy day so we can listen to the next book - The Ember Falls.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It's hard to pick just one character. S.D. Smith has created such depth to his characters they become your friends within a few chapters. My kids quickly learned "My place is beside you, my blood for yours....."

What does Joel Clarkson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

We loved reading the book as a family, and I was skeptical about listening to the audiobook. Joel Clarkson was a pleasant surprise, and rather than being a distraction, he added a new depth to some of the characters. I especially loved how he portrayed Maggie Weaver.

If the truth is what sets us free, what does it mean to live in a society where truth is absent? How do truth and lies in the past shape our destiny today? Through the lens of the Holocaust, best-selling author Andy Andrews examines the critical need for truth in our relationships, our communities, and our government.

If you could sum up How Do You Kill Eleven Million People? in three words, what would they be?

very successful marketing

Any additional comments?

It amazing how Andy Andrews could look at such a horrible situation and weed through it and show how the holocaust could happen in any country - not just Nazi Germany. An opinion held by a very small percentage of the country was marketed so well, that few realized the scope of Hitler's plan until it was too late to stop it.
