Really enjoyed this book. None of the characters were particularly loveable but characters all the same. Narration was good except for the South African accents & way of speaking. I'm a South African & never heard anyone speak like that. But it got better as the story progessed.
Any additional comments?
The author does a great job of making the various worlds in and around the Jewish area of Johannesburg (Doornfontein) collide. His dialogue captures the language of the different groups really well and, what is more, the narrator does a great job capturing the accents, too.
Still, despite the great description, the pace of the novel and the importance of the subject matter (life in Jewish ghettos and the oncoming Shoah), the climax of the book seemed completely unbelievable to me.
Nevertheless, the audiobook is worth a listen and a high grade for the description and language.
