Publisher's Summary

Stephen 'Pista' Nasser was 13 years old when the Nazis whisked him and his family away from their home in Hungary to Auschwitz. His memories of that terrifying experience are still vivid, and his love for his brother Andris still brings a husky tone to his voice when he remembers the terrible ordeal they endured together. Stephen's account of the Holocaust, told in the refreshingly direct and optimistic language of a young boy, will help every listener to understand that the Holocaust was real, and that, if you have enough love, determination, and will power, there is always a better tomorrow!

Heartbreaking Journey through a Survival Story...

I can't say enough about this book. Sad that it takes a story like this to put life into perspective....but my toughest days do not come close. I find it especially heartwarming to hear Mr. Nasser's comments about the United States and how he wants to emigrate here. It makes me especially proud and very thankful to have been fortunate to be born in a country where I am free by all accounts of the word. No regrets in purchasing this audio book and highly recommend it.

Deeply moving account of a Holocaust survivor

If you could sum up My Brother's Voice in three words, what would they be?

I think I would say this is the BEST biography I have ever EVER read. Absolutely awe inspiring account of a young boy during the Holocaust. I have read and reread and listened to it on audible. I have passed it around and those who have read it say similar things

Heartbreaking story

I loved how the story was written. But I didn't always like the narrator's voice in the dialogues. And I would have like him to actually know how words are pronounced in Hungarian. And especially the names of the people and the city of Budapest.

Moving

I don't normally give 5 stars as that would make the book perfect. However, this is one of the few narrative stories I just could not put down, so is deserving 5 stars? In 1943 the Nazis invaded Hungary. This true story tells of how a13 year old survived hard labour, starvation, brutality, seeing family murdered and his hero brothers death. Using inner strength and his brother voice he managed to move on with his life to tell his story.

not enjoying it

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I don't like how the story is narrated. It feels like west side story style acting which doesn't fit this book at all.

What was one of the most memorable moments of My Brother's Voice?

Haven't finished it unfortunately

Would you be willing to try another one of Maxwell Glick’s performances?

Perhaps for a lighthearted story

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

After reading many holocaust memoirs, I'm sure the that the story itself is a worthy read

An Incredible Journey

What did you like best about My Brother's Voice? What did you like least?

I didn't enjoy the author interview at the end of the book.

Would you be willing to try another book from Stephen Nasser and Sherry Rosenthal ? Why or why not?

Only if the subject was interesting enough to overcome my preference to avoid this narrator.

Was My Brother's Voice worth the listening time?

Yes. I'm always reading as much as I can about this period in history and enjoy hearing from all perspectives. However, this is not a title I would read again.

Any additional comments?

It is not for me to make any form of judgement about the story presented. However, some parts of the story appeared to me to be rather incredible. I realise that it was an extroadinary time and situation.
I'm afraid I grew weary of the repeated Self-praise.
