Chris Bohjalian paints with a darker palette than in previous works, concentrating on life's moral ambiguities. His story takes place in a landscape ravaged by WWII, across which two groups of characters must travel. One group includes female concentration camp survivors on a forced march; the other group--consisting of a Prussian princess, a Scots prisoner of war, and a Jew masquerading as a Nazi--is escaping the Russian Army. Mark Bramhall's measured, even pacing, confident use of accents, and resonant voice make him an ideal choice as narrator. His intimate, slightly theatrical, approach serves as an effective counterbalance to the novel's brutal and harrowing episodes. The result is a well-told, richly detailed audiobook.
