I couldn't get passed chapter 2 because the narrator's approach is so grating. It sounds like she's reading to a room full of 5 year olds. Suggest you listen to the sample first to see if you can handle it. Such a shame it's like to be a great book!

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.

This is a fantastic book. Written without sensationalism, it tells a beautiful story in a horrific setting with sensitivity and compassion. You can't help but feel you know Lele & Gita and rejoice in their sorry. Highly recommended.

Introducing Audible's Thriller of the Year: Silent Child by Sarah A. Denzil, performed by Joanne Froggatt. In the summer of 2006, Emma Price watched helplessly as her six-year-old son's red coat was fished out of the River Ouse. It was the tragic story of the year - a little boy, Aiden, wandered away from school during a terrible flood, fell into the river, and drowned. His body was never recovered. Ten years later Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life...until Aiden returns.

A little slow around the middle but a great story. I couldn’t stop listening. Well worth it.
