My 10yr old son and I loved this book.
If you could sum up Shadow on the Mountain in three words, what would they be?
Unique, Informative, Transportive
What did you like best about this story?
Much is written about WWII, but this story is unique in that it's from Norway, a region not always given much attention by the west. My only regret is that I wish we would have listened to it a year earlier when my son was researching a topic on nonviolent resistance for a school project.
What about Jeff Woodman’s performance did you like?
Espen's character and emotion is real.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Ingrid feeding the prisoners. Also, Kjell and Espen's discussion in the snow near the end that both were "only trying to do the right thing" was a deep concept prompting discussion and so relevant even today.
Any additional comments?
Very much like the added material on the end that explains the real life stories from which the author researched.
