Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Four months into the siege of Leningrad, the city is starving.

Seventeen-year-old Lev fears for his life when he is arrested for looting the body of a dead German paratrooper, while his charismatic cellmate, Kolya, a handsome young soldier arrested for desertion, seems bizarrely unafraid.

Dawn brings, instead of an execution squad, an impossible challenge. Lev and Kolya can find a dozen eggs for an NKVD colonel to use for his daughter’s wedding cake, and live. Or fail, and die.

In the depths of the coldest winter in history, through a city cut off from all supplies and suffering appalling deprivation, man and boy embark on an absurd hunt. Their search will take them through desolate, lawless Leningrad and the devastated countryside surrounding it, in the captivating journey of two men trying to survive against desperate odds.

Review:

'Complex and compelling. . . a thought-provoking novel that leaves its own lingering , haunting presence in the reader's imagination'

( Waterstone's Books Quarterly )

'David Benioff's glorious second novel is a wild action-packed quest and much else besides: a coming-of-age story, an odd-couple tale and a juicy footnote to the siege of Leningrad...Will keep your adrenaline pumping...This gut-churning thriller will sweep you along and, with any luck, propel Benioff into bestseller land' 

(Kirkus - starred review 20080323)

'Told with compelling power'

( Sunday Telegraph 20080323)

'Expert tone. . . fine sense of pace." ( Financial Times 20080615)

'A hard-to-put-down novel . . . Benioff blends tense adventure, a bittersweet coming-of-age and an oddly touching buddy narrative to craft a smart crowd-pleaser'

( Publisher's Weekly 20080323)
