„"City of Thieves"“

M. Dupré, Thalia-Buchhandlung Limburg

Everyone who read Khaled Hosseini’s „The Kite Runner“ – watch out! If you thought you might never again read such an outstanding novel about friendship, I might prove you wrong.

Everyone who read Khaled Hosseini’s „The Kite Runner“ – watch out! If you thought you might never again read such an outstanding novel about friendship, I might prove you wrong.
The plot sounds absurd: two adolescent guys desperately egg-hunting in the encircled, starving city of Leningrad 1942. It’s mostly the absurdity of their mission, that welds together the mousy Lew and the bragging loudmouth Kolya, whose lifes depend on a dozen eggs.
Another great Novel by David Benioff, whose melancholic NYC-drama “The 25th Hour” is also worth a look.
By the way: Part of “The City of Thieves” is based on facts, and Lew is none other than Lew Benioff, David Benioffs grandfather.

This audiobook is intriguingly read by "Hellboy" Ron Perlman.

„"Funny, sad and thrilling"“

Nina Grahmann, Thalia-Buchhandlung Hamburg

"My grandfather, the knife fighter, killed two Germans before he was eighteen."
Quite a sentence to start with, isn`t it?


Young Lev has to fight for his life in 1940`s
Leningrad. Being accused of robbery, Lev and his fellow Kolya are to find eggs for the colonel`s wedding cake, otherwise both of them are going to get killed.
"My grandfather, the knife fighter, killed two Germans before he was eighteen."

Young Lev has to fight for his life in 1940`s
Leningrad. Being accused of robbery, Lev and his fellow Kolya are to find eggs for the colonel`s wedding cake, otherwise both of them are going to get killed. But since eggs are rather rare in wartime Russia, Kolya and Lev set out on a trip full of adventures, as well as sad and often shocking moments.

This book is so special to me, as there are very few books about wartime Russia that are not "drenched in tears".
David Benioff is a highly aclaimed Hollywood-Scriptwriter ("25 hours").
