    A writer visits his retired grandparents in Florida to document their experience during the infamous siege of Leningrad. His grandmother won't talk about it, but his grandfather reluctantly consents. The result is the captivating odyssey of two young men trying to survive against desperate odds. Lev Beniov considers himself "built for deprivation." He's small, smart, and insecure, a Jewish virgin too young for the army, who spends his nights working as a volunteer firefighter with friends from his building.

    Paul says: "Stunning Tale. Great Narration."
    "Awesome book. Wonderful narration."
    Overall

    I have not read a book that has kept me so fully engrossed in the story since Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. The story is compelling, humorous at times, and above all, entertaining. As soon as I finished the book, I told my wife she needed to read it, just so I had someone to talk to about it. Ron Pearlman does an excellent job with the narration. His subtle command of the different accents made the dialog of various characters very easy to follow.
