The chess pieces knew how they moved. They knew what they wanted, too. It wasn't like school, where kids pretended they were masters of the teachers' game. The adults didn't know anything anyway. The real world was a big push to nothing. But Lisa escaped from all that. She found Igor Ivanov. He taught her how to play.

I love chess which is the reason I decided to read this book. If you are interested in chess you will probably like it. I wish the author had not read the story himself. I think his writing is good....but it seems like a lot of times authors that read their own work...well...just don't sound very good. This was definitely the case here.... Anyway its a decent story, but the reading of it killed it for me.
I love audio books so yes I would say better. Especially when the narrator uses accents and inflections to portray the characters.
The coming of age, wisdom, and the world coming together as one.
Of course the knowledge of chess, the frustration of the chessless and from the chessless.
No. I broke it up into 4 sittings. It gave me time to reflect on the story.
At the end I broke out in tears. The whole story came together rushing in as if the fractured world came together as a whole.
