The considerable talents of author Joseph Skibell and narrator Allen Lewis Rickman join to deliver a captivating Holocaust story that is as magical and joyous as it is tragic and heartrending. The tale begins as Chaim Skibelski, who was recently gunned down with the other Jews in his Polish village, emerges from the grave to find he must complete a quest before he can enter the afterlife. With his light accent and conversational tone sprinkled with Yiddish asides, Rickman becomes Chaim and convincingly carries the listener along as the incidents and people he encounters on his journey trigger fury, despair, joy, and ultimately wisdom and peace. This is an utterly engrossing story that, like Chaim's odyssey, cannot be abandoned. M.O.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2010]
