The Tattooist of Auschwitz is based on the true story of Lale and Gita Sokolov, two Slovakian Jews who survived Auschwitz and eventually made their home in Australia. In that terrible place, Lale was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival - literally scratching numbers into his fellow victims' arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust.

There are some books that you know are just going to stay with you for a long time. This is definitely one of them. This personal recount of one of the most horrific experiences which any human could endure is brutally in your face and unfathomable at the same time. Highly recommend this book!

What if they hadn't gone? That's the question Clementine can't stop asking herself. It was just a backyard barbeque. They didn't know their hosts that well. They were friends of friends. They could so easily have said no. But she and her husband, Sam, said yes, and now they can never change what they did and didn't do that beautiful winter's day.

I had bought the book and tried about 5 times to get into it but I had a really tough time. so decided to listen instead. I found this one slow to get going. but once it did I LOVED it. I've now read all of LMs books and this is up there with my favourites. fantastic book and as always Caroline Lee did an amazing reading.

Three sisters, one birthday, one little problem... The three Kettle sisters have had a mortifying mishap. Their raucous, champagne-soaked birthday dinner has come to an abrupt end following a violent argument and an emergency dash to the hospital. So who started it this time? Was it angry, hurt Cat, still recovering from the 'night of the spaghetti'? Was it Lyn, so serenely successful, at least on the outside? Or was it quirky, dreamy Gemma, the sister who can't keep a secret except for the most important one of all?

another great one by LM

really enjoyed this book glad she didn't do the obvious with one of the storylines (as nice as it would have been for the character to have things wrapped up in a bow).

thoroughly enjoyed and will listen to it again.

"I'll tell you something, something important. Love is a decision. Not a feeling. That's what you young people don't realise. That's why you're always off divorcing each other. No offence, dear." So decrees the formidable Connie Thrum of Scribbly Gum Island. She is the chief decision-maker of a rather unconventional family and her word is law. It's been over seventy years since Connie and her sister Rose visited their neighbours and found the kettle boiling and a baby waking for her feed, but no sign of her parents.

I'm a huge Liane Moriarty fan so maybe I'm bias. I enjoyed this book however I did find it a little slower paced to her other books. none the less. as always the ending made any lulls worth it. and from my understanding this was her first book. I love that Liane's books always deal with difficult/characters and topics. This one hit a bit harder at times.

The reading was fantastic. Caroline Lee always does a wonderful job with bringing characters to life in her delivery. I speed it up to ×1.15

None of us ever agreed on the exact beginning. Was it when we started drawing the chalk figures, or when they started to appear on their own? Was it the terrible accident? Or when they found the first body?
