Reviews for Prague Winter : A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937-1948

AudioFile Reviews 2012 May
All too often, the personal discoveries of real people are more telling and more compelling than those of fiction. Such is the case with this captivating memoir by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. Focusing on her youth during WWII, the book begins with her discovery in later life that her heritage is quite different from what she had believed. From there, Albright takes the listener on a journey through the events that led her to a career in diplomacy. Albright delivers the book with warmth, in a style that welcomes the listener into her life. While her voice, at times, can be raspy, her performance overcomes this minor limitation and allows the listener to experience world events through her eyes, including WWII and the Cold War. D.J.S.
