    "Simply the best book I have read."

    The only thing that shone brighter than the wonderful story and the outstanding performance were the amazing details, vivid historical accuracies.

    "Definitely recommend this!"

    First, thank you Jodi Picoult for the multiple narrators who were all excellent readers! More authors should do this. It's much easier for the listener, in particular when there are several time lines and characters.

    This was my first Picoult listen and I was not disappointed. Excellent story, well written, interesting characters.

    Part of the story is about the Holocaust as well as the experience of Sage's grandmother, Minka, as a prisoner and survivor. I can listen to some graphic scenes with most fiction books because I know they're probably not true. But this subject is part of history and I believe things like this happened. The stories that are told were uncomfortable for me for that reason. But, again, this was well written so I was able to sit through it and it's only a portion of the book.

    The story is serious, yet there are times that are funny and made me laugh. While I didn't care for the story of the monster I understand how it fits in for Minka and her survival. I appreciate Leo's sense of humor - a little over the top and sometimes inappropriate, but that's fun.

    There is a question asked a couple of times, "How does it end?" (referring to the story).

    Story
    "Captivating, mesmerizing"

    This is a story of struggle in WW2 Nazi Germany written, and performed, in several voices. It is a story of unspeakable horror and of bravery & hope. The underlying story is a bit vague. That's ok because it is the tale of Josef, Minca, Daria & other victims of Nazi Germany that are the real story here.
    This is my first Jodi Picoult novel. I look forward to many more.
    In closing I would like to give a nod to the narrators. Using more than one reader is a stroke of genius. I hope others pick up on this idea as well. Best performance I've heard in a while.
    Thank you for the entertainment. It was well worth the time.

    Story
    "Moving"

    To those reviewers who wrote that the ending was foretold, I am incredulous that you would say such s thing. This intricate tale of love, betrayal, incredible courage, and forgiveness was never predictable. Nor is the ending. "How does it end?", Franz cries out. Jodi has left us to imagine.
