This is a good book for the "teen" years or easy read. I thought there would be more depth to the subject matter,so was somewhat disappointing. I also wasn't very impressed by the ending scene.
Probably not, because of the reader.
Liked them equally.
Wow, did EVERY sentence in this book end with an explanation point .It made it difficult to listen to when the reader sounded like every word and sentence was going to end in an explosive action or comment.
No. I could only tolerate this reader for 20-30 minutes at a time. Too bad, the book and author are very good.
I'll keep my eyes out for this reader ,so I can avoid him .Sorry , Scott!
I'd seen the movie before and was surprised at how boring this book was. The reader did a nice job but the long(very long) descriptive paragraphs throughout with little action made it difficult to stay with.
Interesting look at Soviet life and thinking in post WWII era.
Storyline did have a few unexpected turns and twists
Reading was alright.often felt stiff,and occassionally use of accents was not believable.Would have been better without it.
The storyline did want one to research the history of the time more.
