I found the audio format preferable to print in that I would not know how to pronounce various Russian words and cities, etc.
Loved the Russian accents! Not overdone and only occasional for emphasis in certain passages. Nice interpretation, Ron.
After noting that Benioff wrote or co-wrote many of the excellent screenplays for Game of Thrones, I became interested in his work. This novel is a gripping account of grandfather's experiences as a young Russian man in the first winter of WWII when Nazi Germany attacked Communist Russia. The writing is extraordinary and compelling. I feel present in the story.
