Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Littell's epic tale of a reformed Nazi officer takes the form of a fictitious memoir that takes listeners on a journey from Poland to the Ukraine and through some of the most notorious events in world history as seen from a Nazi perspective. Grover Gardner gives an unforgettable performance as Dr. Max Aue, a closeted homosexual and rising star in the SS. Gardner's intensity and passion force listeners to identify with Aue in all his torment and brutality. It's an uncomfortable, unforgettable, and transformative experience. A Harper hardcover (Reviews, Dec. 8, 2008). (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
