THE GIFT 12 Lessons to Save Your Life

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tovah Feldshuh

Personal Growth • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Tovah Feldshuh's mature voice and acclaimed acting skills make her an excellent choice to perform this heartfelt advice from a 93-year-old Jewish-Hungarian clinical psychologist and Holocaust survivor. Feldshuh's lilting phrasing is incredibly varied, beautiful to hear in itself, and finessed to match every nuance in the shifting themes of this work. Her performance really shines because of her audible connection with the author's empathy, compassion, and wisdom. Eger's story of surviving the death camps at Auschwitz and her focus on helping people recover from trauma could have made this audiobook difficult to hear. But with the warmth and sensibilities of the author and the narrator working together so effectively, what dominates the listening is hope and infectious confidence in the wisdom of Eger's empowering advice.
