THE WORLD THAT WE KNEW

by | Read by Judith Light

Historical Fiction • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Hoffman works her magic once again in this unique audiobook. Judith Light's intensely dramatic narration suits the subject matter well. She delivers the dialogue passionately, and the narrative is brisk and sharp. Set in Europe during WWII, this unconventional story traces the steps of women so desperate that they are driven to create a golem to serve as a protector. The magical elements seem perfectly realistic as revealed in Light's driving, theatrical delivery. It doesn't take long for the listener to get pulled into this other realm, eager to keep up with Light's narrative pace. The audiobook lays bare the essentials of love and evil, sacrifice and mortality, for contemplation. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
