Would you listen to Anna and the Swallow Man again? Why?
Yes, you gain new and deeper perspectives with each read.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Anna and the Swallow Man?
The ending works out well, as it leaves the reader in the same circumstances as the main character.
This is a literary novel, beautifully written and narrated and well worth a listen even if you are far removed from the labelled 'Young Adult' audience. C.S. Lewis wrote, 'No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally – and often far more – worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond.” And, of that, Anna and the Swallow Man is a perfect example; I expect most adult readers will take more away, read more into the subtlety of this story and its characters, than most of the YA genre's intended age group.
If the summary and sample at all grab you, I'd recommend the listen. I know it'll be on my re-read/re-listen list in the future.

This is a heart warming, gut wrenching, thought provoking book. It deserves many accolades. If you read only one book about WW 2, make sure it is this one.
