The readers can download Pastel Orphans Audiobook for free via Audible Free Trial.


In 1930s Berlin, young Henrik, the son of a Jewish father and Aryan mother, watches the world around him crumbling: people are rioting in the streets, a strange yellow star begins appearing in shop windows, and friends are forced to move-or they simply disappear.



  • Starting off with the protagonist as a young boy and tracing his emotional journey as he matures alongside his sister, Greta, "Pastel Orphans" delves into his experiences growing up in Germany and discovering his dual heritage as half Catholic and half Jewish. With each twist and turn, the reader uncovers more about Rick's life and the backdrop of World War II, exposing the unimaginable atrocities that occurred. The writing in this novel is skillfully executed, and the male narrator truly excels in bringing the story to life. I wholeheartedly endorse this audiobook and strongly recommend it!
  • I absolutely loved the storyline of 'Pastel Orphans', but I have to admit that the three narrators chosen for the audiobook were absolutely terrible. Their performances were so bad that I wouldn't even consider listening to anything else they've done.
