This is a well written book, but the subject matter is far darker than what it appears. I wouldn't recommend it for late night listening.
I thoroughly enjoyed this listen. I connected with many of the characters, and found the insight into the siege of Leningrad very powerful and meaningful. It had me sobbing in bed at 2am in the morning, and I would highly recommend it.
I really enjoyed some of the characters in this book, and it was a heart warming, easy listening listen. I would recommend it for someone looking for a warm, light hearted, if somewhat predictable listen. Enjoyable.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. It held my interest, and I was quite fascinated with learning about what is involved in creating and revising a dictionary. I would recommend it.
