Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Justine Eyre

Fiction • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Justine Eyre is the ideal narrator for Colin’s engaging story of a German orphan girl who, by her extraordinary ability to survive loneliness and hardship, becomes an iconic film star amid the Nazi rise to power. Eyre’s characterizations of both male and female voices are genuine and compassionate. Her narration invokes a special empathy for the novel’s heroine, Lilly Nelly Aphrodite, whom she grants just the right mix of naïveté and ingenuity to pull the listener along. Eyre’s pronunciations are smooth and believable. Indeed, she may be one of the few audiobook narrators who can offer a lilting delivery of German names, places, and phrases. Other accents, notably Russian and American, are also easy on the ear. A great listen. R.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
