    "OK - nice narration - good characters"

    NOt great - not an ear-turner, but interesting, great character development, and excellent narration. I am finding that excellent narration is hard to come by...

    "A terrific experience"

    I recommend this as one of the best audible books I've listened to in the last year (and I've listened to a lot of good ones). I rapidly became lost in the world of Lev and his progress to the extent that I almost felt I might bump into him in London next week. The mood of the whole book is exquisite and perfectly paced and Juliet Stevenson's reading makes a terrific contribution to this. I'm always wary of 'accents', which can get in the way. But the combination of her own great voice and her effortless characterisation of everyone really enhanced the experience. Fantastic and memorable.

    "Great story"

    Beautifully narrated by Juliet Stevenson, this book tells the heartbreaking but finally uplifting story of lev a Russian migrant. How hard life can be for some. Can recommend this book for a good read, but a bit slow in the beginning.
