I really enjoyed listening to to this book, another tale of hardship during WWII. I have already listened to "The NIghtengale", and "Lilac Girls". The vivid description of the circus, at a time when Ringling Bros. is disbanding, put a deeper meaning on the close of a page of history. The lives of the performers are reminiscent of "Water for Elephants". The relationship between the two women is poignant and detailed, but the depth of some of the characters falls flat. The use of two narrators is effective. An easy entertaining listen, with a bit of a surprise ending, it is good fare for long hours on the road.
I liked the original plot of this book. It seemed very well researched. I wished for a bit more character development. I did not feel like there was enough explained about Astrid and Noa to justify the depth of their bond. As far a the narration, I don't know why they needed to do an accent for the character voices. I understand the main character were German, but I'm not sure the accent added anything to the story.
An unexpected ending. The book was engaging and a very good read.
This was a great book. The narrator was great and it is a gripping story!!
This book is excellent, it should be a movie.
