From the outset, THE LIST is a compelling novel that springs to life with David Thorn’s superb performance. Written by NBC News correspondent Martin Fletcher, the book focuses on Austrian WWII survivors Edith and Georg; their cousin, Anna; and their search for surviving family members in a world of anti-Semitism. Fletcher’s prose is gripping, and Thorn’s use of accents and inflections helps drive the story and gives the listener a highly engaged feeling of intimacy with the characters. But in the end, the book, based in London and Palestine, succeeds because of Thorn’s mastery of Fletcher’s commanding prose, which vividly brings to life every scene, focusing not only on postwar life but also on the efforts to create a Jewish state in the Middle East.
