Would you consider the audio edition of Saving My Assassin to be better than the print version?
Listening to the book pulled my focus to the scenes and feelings that Virginia Prodan conveys in the story of her childhood in an unpleasant home and then life and career as an attorney under the Romanian dictatorship. There are a few twists in the story on the way to the scene with the assassin and that is not the end. I read the print version when it came out and was so pleased to see the audio version that I had to get it as well. The two narrators are very good for this book.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Saving My Assassin?
The house arrest scenes when people seem to enter even with the guards present. To comment about the assassin might spoil the book.
Have you listened to any of Matilda Novak’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, but the narration for this book was appropriate for this book.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The "creepy" sensation for the tense parts of the book is reoccurring and lasts a while after the book is finished. There were only a couple of tears this time with the audio, but I had read the print version before.
Any additional comments?
I recommend this book highly for a small look into life in a dictatorship and as a memoir with a positive outcome. This book might be really good for students. Virginia Prodan has studied, trained, and practiced law under two very different systems of government and is a very passionate speaker.
