This remarkable audiobook unfolds movingly as delivered in a calm, measured voice by narrator Michael Goldstrom. Set in WWII-era Poland, the novel reveals the horrors of war through the eyes of the title character, Aron, whom Goldstrom voices perfectly. His performance has a quiet quality that suits the subject matter—after all, nothing could FULLY re-create these powerful scenes in the listener’s mind. Through his measured, reserved tone, Goldstrom allows us to fill in the blanks, and the effect is ideal. As listeners’ imaginations take over, they become part of Aron’s band of child smugglers and petty thieves who struggle to keep their families alive in the Warsaw ghettos. L.B.F.
