    Mr

    This is wonderful book. It captures the siege of Leningrad so well you actually feel like your there omongst the starving people. Helen Dunmore writes with such clarity and emotion, she sweeps you along in a tide of exploration into the minds of poor starving people, the likes of which are required to stoop so low in order to survive.

    Fabulous book

    A great book, well worth a read. Amazing insight into the tragic events of the Leningrad Siege. I believe there is a follow on to this story, The Betrayal.

    Je voelt de kou door de pagina's

    Het beleg van Leningrad in 1942 wordt genadeloos echt beschreven. Je voelt de kou als het ware door het boek heen. Geweldige beschrijvingen van de kou, de honger, de doden, de ellende. Het boek heeft één groot minpunt: het heeft eigenlijk geen plot en dat is wel heel jammer.
