Publisher's Summary

The acclaimed best-selling classic of Holocaust literature, winner of the Booker Prize and the Los Angeles Times Book Award for fiction, and the inspiration for the classic film - “[a] masterful account of the growth of the human soul” (Los Angeles Times Book Review).

A stunning novel based on the true story of how German war profiteer and factory director Oskar Schindler came to save more Jews from the gas chambers than any other single person during World War II. In this milestone of Holocaust literature, Thomas Keneally, author of Daughter of Mars, uses the actual testimony of the Schindlerjuden - Schindler’s Jews - to brilliantly portray the courage and cunning of a good man in the midst of unspeakable evil.

really well done

I thought it was a very well written book this was the first time I listened to it I saw the movie years ago I'm half-jewish and always think about what it would be like back then all the poor innocent babies children women and men that had to deal with that. everybody should listen to this book should be mandatory about what's good there is in the world and bad.

Hard to listen to but very well done

This is a story that is very emotional if you have any level of empathy. It is so well written and relays it’s information as a documentary with wonderful narration. To understand the cruelty and compassion of human nature I can think of very few stories to compare. It will take me a while before I’m ready to listen a second time but it certainly is one of the best written stories I have listen to.

Incredible!

Many places hard to read, but everyone who can, should read this brilliantly rendered true story.

Great listen.

Good narration and great book. This, like the movie, is a heart wrenching story that shows both sides of Oskar’s story.

STOP if you love historical FICTION

I couldn’t even get past the first two hours of this book. There was no character development and the plot read like someone trying to recount historical events. There was nothing creative about this story, but might be a great read for those who prefer or tolerate a dry historical account.
