Alan Furst kept coming up in my suggestions and finally decided to try one of his books. I would recommend this book to others and I will read additional Furst books.
The plot was set in Soviet controlled Europe. This was the first book I have read from the view of a character in Soviet service. I really enjoyed the plot and different historical ties in the book.
I have really enjoyed this series. I typically cannot read multiple books in a series back to back without another book in between. I have read the first 3 in relatively quick succession and they have maintained my interest. The multiple story lines and character depth are excellent and keep my interest level. The narration is excellent.
I have read/listened to several of Cornwell's books in the last year. I have really enjoyed them all so far...until this one. I can't get past the narration in this book. I have had a few other books where it took a little to get used to the narrator's voice. I can't quite define what it is about the narrator, but I can't listen for more than about 5 minutes. I will purchase a copy I can read because I'm sure the story is as good as his other books.
This was a book I hated enjoying (if that make any sense). There were pieces of it that I hated listening too but I kept going because I was hooked on the story. To be honest, I wasn't expecting such an emotionally engaging book based on a dog's perspective. That skewed my view a little towards the negative side because I was expecting a light hearted easy listen. Overall, I enjoyed the book and I would recommend it.
