A Terrific Read, Full of Atmosphere and Quirky Characters

The author brings this period of history alive in vivid and sometimes graphic detail. Her characters are larger than life and a delight to listen to. The narrator does a super job with the various accents, both male and female. Despite the disturbing subject matter, there are many comical moments. Very highly recommended!

Many tears were shed listening to this unforgettable book. It is an account of bravery, selflessness and resilience in the face of terrible depravity and human suffering. I could hear the tears in the narrator's voice - she lends so much to the telling. I very much recommend.

This novel is bursting with funny anecdotes and intelligent observations. Unlike other, fluffier books of this type, you feel the author is not embellishing the story to make it funnier. You believe what she depicts is the real France - she understands the country and its people so well. I've found that the narrator can make or break an audiobook and, luckily, this one is charming. I could listen to her warm Aussie accent all day. Enjoy!

An unlikely storyline and characters whose actions don't ring true. I had to grit my teeth a few times to keep going with the story.

This is made worse by an irritating narrator who mispronounces so many words it becomes farcical. Why didn't anyone correct her?
