As I am sure was the point: it was the title that intrigued me.
It was a clever way to weave the fairy tale into a story, but over all I didn’t love it. Not a bad story, but more disturbing and alarming than interesting and compelling… of course the plight of Jews in WW2 is disturbing; but I’ve read better.

Great narration; content disturbing
I almost didn't finish listening to this book; the content and details were extremely graphic and upsetting. The story was engaging. Another example of the horrors of war and, sadly, pertinent in our world today.
