I switched between the audiobook and Kindle. I thought the readers were great. I liked the format of going back and forth between the 1930s and present day. Heartbreaking story, but also kind of predictable.
Fantastic literature complement to our history units. Interesting focus on the Roman occupation of Israel during the time of Christ. My kids (ages 8-12) all enjoyed it. The characters are YA age, but younger kids will like it too.
