➦No spoilers, people, I promise. Again, I got this second book on audio and, no surprise there, it’s over 30 hours long. This is also where we see the worst of the siege of Leningrad and, I kid you not, after reading this book I’ve dreamed of being starved to death for multiple night in a row. I don’t know, I might be too impressionable, but damn. It makes you appreciate every single thing in your fridge and make you want to stuff yourself. You know, just in case.
➦This also is a book where things get steamy. After following these characters for such a long time you definitely feel like you know them. It might have even felt a bit personal and uncomfortable being there during their… ahem, private moments. Ah, hell, who am I kidding?
➦I will also tell you that I have attempted to read book #3 in this series and dropped it. Not because it sucked, or anything but simply because it was a completely different setting and a completely different life and struggle. Some things were beginning to sound a bit redundant so I put it on pause… for now.
