Recommending it to one and all. The sheer breathtaking vigour, intimate and panoramic is something to experience. The leavetaking section and its intensity! Familiar with Vasily Grossman's writing.. I can say he is right up there with the Russian Greats. Its a 360 degrees experience! Heartbreaking and spirited all at once. Savour it, make it your own.. thats what he's inviting you to do however far away in time and space your world maybe. Im doing just that. Thank you Vasily.

Great start then loses its way.!

Narrator carries it evocatively but the story falls into the predictable trap. Loved the second sleep concept.

Narration par excellence...

Easily one of the best books and made memorable by the nuanced and passionate reading of the narrator. If the listener flags he is there to urge you on with his engaged reading!!!
