I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book!! The reading was great and the story line put me on the edge of my seat. There are aspects of the war I hadn't thought about. If you haven't listened to the Nightingale, please do. It is very good.

I enjoyed the story very much but did not enjoy the explicit language throughout.

Loved this - the reader did very well with the accents (French and German) and painted a great picture of war-time Paris.

This is the first audiobook I've heard which reminded me of an unexpectedly enjoyable eating experience. Specifically a sweet, juicy peach. I checked this out on a whim because I like architecture. I didn't expect to like the writing, characters, narrator's voice/accents and enlightening historical context as much as I did. It's strange but it reminded me of eating a peach. Not my favorite fruit but when you're pleasantly surprised by a really good one it makes it that much more enjoyable. I highly recommend this book.

An evenly paced "read" with some scenes that keep you on the edge of your seat. Mark's accents get a bit blurred between the French and the German and the women and indistinguishable but all-in-all, an enjoyable book.
