"Kudos to Balson!"
Don't miss this Book! Karolina's Twins is no
Less than a masterpiece. It is a story which weaves history and the triumph of the human spirit into a beautiful tapestry of survival.
Balson's characters will remain in your memory
Long after you finish the book. Love and commitment triumph over the ugliness of
Prejudice and hate.
"Excellent Story and Storytelling"
Read the author's first book Once We Were Brothers, and although it is still my fave, I really enjoyed this one as well, and will certainly recommend it to friends. The story kept me on the edge of my seat, not knowing what to expect. I loved the twist at the end. As for the narrator, she did an incredible job performing all of the characters, with distinct voices for each.
"I couldn't stop listening"
I loved this book. I loved the story and the narrator. I couldn't stop listening.
"Fabulous!! A must read, especially for anyone personally touched by the Holocaust. Heart wrenching traumas told beautifully."
Listening to Lena's very moving story gave me some insight into what my mother might have endured but was unable to share with me. Thank you for that gift!!
"Thought provoking "
One of the best books of 2016! If you loved All of the light you cannot see or The Nightingale, you will surely not be disappointed! Rarely does a book move me to tears but this one made me stop and take a break more than a few times.
Narration could not have been any better! a truly amazing book.
Wonderful narration, gripping story. Very real look at life during the German occupation of Poland.
Facing ones night mares is both terrifying and cleansing. If we can deal with the issues earlier so much pain, joys and completeness would be ours .
very good book.. !!! It got you interested right away kept my interest..a heartwarming perspective of how horrible Hitler reign was ..but love and the human spirit. .existed..unthinkable actions by some German people...how can any human being do those horrible actions..didnt want this book to end..
I chose this book based on the review written on audible and it was correct!! This book made me anxious, elated, teary eyed and was a FANTASTIC story!! It was also beautifully narrated. Best listen of 2017 so far! ;-)
Yes, The story roped me in and i listened to it straight through. I couldn't put it down.
I liked that it wasn't just about the horrors of the holocaust but switches between the present and the past. The characters were very compelling as was the humanness of the story. The pain and horrors the people went through was so heart wrenching but yet I was unable to look away.
There were so many but one stands out. The time that Lena stood up to the german who was supposed to be the babies father and got the coal and the food for the babies.
Lena for her courage.
