In a heartbeat! Ron Perlman is an amazing narrator. I could not stop listening. He needs to narrate more books.
When Kolya finally gets his shit. Yes, you read that right.
The final one. Which I won't spoil for you.
From the writer of the 25th Hour, a new movie ...
If I ever feel sorry for myself, I'll just remember library candy.
Interesting insight into WWII St. Petersburg,
The characters were develope very fast.
The ending of the book was very well done.
Such an amazing book and so well performed! I can't imagine a better way to encounter this book than the audible version. And this book should be encountered!! It is a fantastic, touching, funny, moving, thought-provoking story told in perfect prose and with the right amount of.... everything.
Having just come off listening to a few bad audio books, this was refreshing. The plot and characters are engaging and the use of language is great. Ron Perlman does a very good job.
This was a pleasure to listen to, all the way through.
Extremely well written, this is a coming of age adventure story - but beware not a happy feel good book. The story is set in and around the siege of Lenningrad and the gruesome realities of war are ever present.
Get this book. I haven't been this enraptured with a work for a while. Benioff tells a powerful tale from a first-hand perspective. I was at once captivated and unsettled by its realism. And Perlman's talent showed brightly and with solid skill. Get this book. You won't regret it. I'm starting a second listen now just in case I missed even a nuance.
This is not my normal book but it was very good. It is disturbing in places but very interesting. I would recommend but not for those with a very tender heart.
The story went into great character development and held my interest until the very end.
The ending. A nice surprise at the end.
I would recommend it to everyone.
The details of how people survived in a city under siege were marvelous. The characters were fabulous and some of the tidbits will stay with me forever.
Likeable rich characters. Interesting view of WWII history.
Kolya. Wonderful sense of self and infectious curiosity.
Kolya. Ron Perlman was fantastic
I could not stop listening.
