Is there anything you would change about this book?
The title should be 'Women During The Nazi Era'. Whilst there is accounts of some truly evil Women, there is also accounts of Women who were opposed to the Nazi regime who were definitely not attracted to Evil. Also a lot is written about Women who were partners to men before the Nazis rose to power, so they were not attracted to evil just men who became evil as their power grew.
What did you like best about this story?
I found the book interesting, emotional at times and liked the insight into how terrible it must have been for a lot of Women during that period. The story of the bravery of Women risking their lives to protest the deportation of their Jewish husbands at Rosenstrasse and actually succeeding in getting them back I found particularly uplifting.
What aspect of Gabrielle Glaister’s performance might you have changed?
Whilst Gabrielle's voice was pleasant enough, she really needed to research how to pronounce German names as it became slightly annoying. Albert Speer is pronounced Shpeer not Spear and Reinhard Heydrich whose name changed every time, from hay-drick, to hay-drish, to hi-drish to finally correct as hi-drick!
Do you think Nazi Women needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Not under the same title theme for sure. I'd be interested in more Women's accounts of how life was during the Nazi era.
Any additional comments?
Overall worth 'reading' but take the title with a pinch of salt!

If you ever wondered why women are attracted to the most evil of men? Look no further then nazi women. This is a must listen for anyone who wants to understand the psyche of human nature. Very good listen.

Any additional comments?
Narrator did a good job, but the author should have been more in-depth for a history examining this subject. The material the author presented was enriching.
