One of my favorite books

I read this book for the first time in 6th grade and fell in love with the history. I am now a college sophomore majoring in contemporary history and with us now talking about the holocaust I decided to Reread the book. Now that I am older and I know more about the history I enjoyed it more. It is such a heartbreaking story.

I feel as though I was taken there

Although the subject of this book is a difficult one, I am so glad I took the opportunity to listen to it. As Hannah is taken back to 1942, I felt as though I was taken with her. I was reminded, yet again, why we must remember.

SPEECHLESS

I am left speechless at this amazing work. The author found a fascinating way to take us right into the heart and soul of the history of the Holocaust. At first I thought this would be a book for children, but no. Told from a young Jewish girls perspective, you are taken right into the heart of the horrors that took place in concentration camps and will gain a deeper understanding of the statement - NEVER AGAIN!

Fantastic reading that adds to the experience

Fantastic reading that adds to the experience of the book. I listened to it to read along in the book to understand pronunciation of the Yiddish and German words.

Accurately read but distracting sounds.

Wonderful story telling. Great use of inflection throughout the story. Unfortunately, the sounds of the speakers mouth were distracting to me and I could hear an echo in the background. Otherwise, great narrating :)

Beautiful

One of the most wonderful books I've ever read, heart breaking, beautiful, and not Satanic as the title suggests.
