5 Stars Out Of 5
August 5, 2014
This book was excellent and exceeded my expectations. The plot and characters were believable and well researched. I would agree with some other reviewers that there could have been more development of the characters, but honestly I wasnt bothered by that at all as they were developed enough for me to care for their fates. I thought the authors sensitivity to and exploration of the issue concerning Christians and how they reacted (or failed to react) to the Holocaust was exceptional. And despite all the horrific and discouraging situations in the book, I deeply appreciated the overall message of hope, survival, and life.
The man reading for this audio version did an excellent job with different voices and the foreign pronounciations were believable (though I claim no expertise in that!) His pacing was well done. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to him read.
