My children and I loved this book. It was a good pace and long enough to accompany us on a few of our monthly, hour long trips.
The characters were relatable, especially for my 9 & 10 year old. The story was appropriate for their age, although near the end it did get a little intense.
We really liked the performance and all of the different voices she did. My daughter thought there was more than one person, because the voices sounded so distinct.
Being born in a communist country myself, but haven't known how the whole "conversion" started and only seeing the consequences it was moving to hear a story of someone from another country, who witnessed the start of it and narrated it with a child's openness and uncorrupted mind. Incredibly moving story about human stupidity and human heroism on the other side. Beware though - if you are easily moved/even if you are not - do not listen while driving your car. I couldn't see the road as tears were streaming from my eyes...
