I would recommend this read to anyone interested in history and the enduring human spirit. Love of animals and their job gives a testimony of how creative people can be when faced with overwhelming situations. I was so encouraged by the resistance recorded in this book against the Nazi regime
A great story but incredibly sad. I'm looking forward to seeing the movie! The narrator was great.
this book was incredibly interesting ! I was not expecting it to be as engaging and informative as it was, and I enjoyed the narrator.
Excellent book. In addition to the story was the lessons learn d re insects, animals and history.
Sad. Did not like the fake accents in narration. Great history lesson
I loved the mix of historical information with characters emotions. I became very attached to everyone in the story. The narrator was a perfect pick for this book.
I throughly enjoyed this one! I love historical fiction, especially with strong and deep female characters at the forefront of the story. This was truly enjoyable. The narrator has a steady, calm voice and incorporates slight accents to aid the story and distinguish characters.
This book is an interesting blend of history interwoven with the diaries of people living in Warsaw at the time of World War II. The narrator was very good, going back and forth with accents to distinguish between the narrative and the diary. Highly recommend!
I guess I didn't read the description very well, but once I realized it was nonfiction, I was loving this book. An amazing story of the humanity and courage in a time of crisis. Every time I learn of the trials of our history, I am enriched. 5 stars
This is a timely book. Sometimes as a novel it was just a bit meandering, but I love it because it is a true story. I'm sure this story of courage over fear was played out many times across Europe in those dark days. Americans need this story and its lessons right now.: Courage triumphs over fear, when the right thing to do is so clearly defined.
Good book. Sad story. Evocative scenes etched in my mind. Thought the story digressed many times in order to tell the background story. Sometimes became a bit tedious. Highly recommend a related fictional story set in Germany called "The Book Thief".
