    "Twists and turns"

    I will say I was a bit confused for a few chapters. I was trying to put it all together, but never was not interested! The way Jody Picoult lays out the plot! Oh man! Each section kept me on the edge. I really really loved this book!

    Story
    "Love Jodi Picoult, but this audio book confused me"

    The substance of the story was deep and extremely descriptive, but in the throws of everything, I lost track of who was who, and found myself confused and trying to figure out what exactly was happening to who, and when, etc.
    Maybe it was the fact that the voices of the characters were too similar and hard to tell apart.
    Either way, I was a bit lost as to what was happening to who throughout the majority of the story, though it was incredibly intriguing, descriptive and captivating.
    Towards the end of it all, I figured it all out, but I just feel that I'd enjoyed it more had I been clearer on the different characters.

    Jodi Picoult is an INCREDIBLE writer, and I have loved everything I've read by her; it's just that this particular book gave me a bit of confusion.

    Bottom line, the story is enlightening and I actually ended up loving it; I just think I'd have had a more emotional connection throughout had I been able to decipher what voice was which character.
    It was an incredibly descriptive and captivating novel, nonetheless.

    "Complex characters and story line"

    I have read a ton of historical fictions particularly the ones regarding ww2 and this one has quickly become my favorite. I really enjoyed hearing from the point of view of the young SS souldier and how the Germans saw the war/ hitler. It was a new perspective that I wasn't familiar with. Since some of the narrators have german and polish accents, at times I had to rewind to really understand something. But overall they were easy to understand. Higly recommend to anyone!

    Story
    "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.

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

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

    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!

    "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.
