The Tattooist of Auschwitz Audio Book

Winner of the 2019 Audie Award for Best Fiction, read by Richard Armitage, most recognised for his role as Thorin Oakenshield in Peter Jackson’s trilogy of The Hobbit, this is the audio book of Heather’s debut novel The Tattooist of Auschwitz.

“The audio version of this book is a particularly strong marriage of narrator and material. The British actor Richard Armitage wrings every ounce of feeling, drama and even humor … Morris works hard to convey the devastating reality of daily life in a concentration camp. Her compassion for her characters, combined with Armitage’s riveting delivery, makes this an immensely satisfying book to listen to.“
