Reviews: LET ME GO by Helga Schneider

Melissa from Shhh I’m Reading… chose the audio version of Helga Schneider’s Let Me Go for the WWII reading challenge.  Here’s what she had to say:

The narrator of this book, Barbara Rosenblat, is amazing. She inflects so much emotion into the book that I often found myself with goosebumps. When she reads the mother’s words it varies between and old woman’s confusion and petulance to unashamed cruelty. While Let Me Go is a fascinating story of an insider’s experience in the concentration camps, it is worth listening to for the wonderful narration alone.

Sandy from You’ve GOTTA read this! also listened to the audiobook, and here’s a bit of her thoughts:

I listened to the entire audio with a knot in my stomach and a tight throat. In my mind, at the end of “Let Me Go”, we are left with one final mystery. Did her mother answer all of Helga’s questions with the specific intention of solidifying her daughter’s hate and thus freeing her to walk away with a clear conscience? Or is Helga’s mother truly without remorse? I will leave that for you to decide.
