What a wonderful book and why have I not read it before It reminded me of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas both for its remarkable story and the uality of the writing The book is written as a retelling by the author of his Grandfather s early life specifically one week in 1942 the first week of the year the week he met my grandmother made his best friend and killed two Germans During that week the Grandfather Lev was just 17 years old and living in Leningrad which was enduring the Nazi siege of 1942 Various events cause him to meet up with Kolya a Russian deserter who is only a few years older in years but much in experience Together they set out on a ridiculous uest and witness many of the awful atrocities that occurred during that warThe characters of Lev and Kolya are what makes this book Kolya is by turns funny and infuriating but is always lovable Their dialogue is freuently hilarious which prevents the story from becoming overwhelmingly sad and horrifying The history was amazing how those poor people survived starvation during the siege I had not come across library candy before The will to live brings about some incredible inventionA sad sad ending with a sweet epilogue I have another favourite book

This is what happens during war people will do anything to survive from murder to stealing to going on exhaustive food hunts Absurdly as it sounds this becomes the cultural normIt s the Soviet Union 1942 Tension is thick with famine and war The Germans are beginning their invasion Two soviet thieves Lev and Kolya are captured and thrown into the same cell However instead of death they are given a 4 day reprieve with a mission to find a dozen eggs for a wedding cake for a colonel s daughter This is their mission and the wild egg hunt they go on Trudging through a landscape of death evading nazis and cannibals fighting their own fatigue and exhaustion an unusual friendship begins Well drawn out human characters Lev Jewish shy and withdrawn paralleling that of Kolya a mild mannered fellow providing humour on this bleak trekFrom calculated neglect to constipation this a story rich in all elements of character development Writing so palatable and simplistic yet rich in texture it was a pleasure to read 5 Thank you to my GR friends who pointed this one out as a must read

How could you fear anything than deathEverything else offered moments of escape a paralyzed man could still read Dickens a man in the grips of dementia might have flashes of the most absurd beauty Lev Beniov wants to live He may not be clear about anything else but he knows that to be true Life becomes precious when being anywhere not just in the wrong place but just existing in space can turn into a death trap at any moment When his mother and sister fled the city he decided to stay Now he is caught up in one of the worst sieges in the history of the world he is in Leningrad or as I always think of it St Petersburg Lev is seventeen years old Because it is mostly a city of islands Leningrad was isolated from the rest of the Soviet Union by the Nazis control or destruction of its bridgesWhen I went to Google the siege of Leningrad to brush up on the events that provided the background for this novel I was slightly taken aback when all I had to do was put in SIEGE and BAM there was Leningrad The Germans made the decision instead of going street by street and house by house to just starve the citizens and remaining soldiers out of the city They put a ring of soldiers around the perimeter of the city so that no one can come in and no one can come out The staggering results are the deaths of two million Russian soldiers and civilians I was built for deprivation We ve all maybe been a bit hungry but many of us cocooned in a civilized world where food is plentiful and relatively cheap may not remember the last time we had a hunger pain Lev and the remaining people of Leningrad have went beyond hungry to near starvation People are dying daily because now there is no cushion of calories between them and dying One day without some type of food intake will bethe final day It is almost like a gift from God if Lev believed in such a person to see the German paratrooper frozen to death drift down from the sky Lev and his friends pounce on the body ransacking pockets finding food a nice Damascus blade and a flask of cognac or maybe schnapps how could they know the difference But it spreads a warmth through their bodies like a hot meal or a roaring fire They take too long a crucial loss of focus Maybe it is the bonanza of food and booze that makes them forget for a moment that they are vulnerable out in the open The soldiers are on them uickly and there is a mad scramble for safety Lev is caught He is shocked they didn t execute him for looting immediately He has seen it happen before He is thrown into a cell and there he meets Kolya who is also in dire trouble He is charged with desertion and they didn t execute him either This isn t a time for trials or due process Shooting someone is just one less mouth to feed The rules are maddeningly unpredictable It is always best to assume the worst Now Kolya didn t desert because he was afraid or because he was homesick He deserted because he was horny He is a tall good looking guy who is used to having a steady diet of sexual encounters With most of the city too calorie deprived to even think about anything as strenuous as sex it is still his number one concern His number two concern is in fact number two He hasn t taken a crap in eleven days The loneliest sound in the world is other people making love As Lev soon finds outThe reason they are still alive is there is a Colonel who needs a dozen eggs He is throwing a wedding feast for his daughter and they need eggs to bake her wedding cake Kolya and Lev seem like improbable candidates to pull off such an impossible mission They are dead men walking though and the Colonel has offered a pardon if they can bring him back the eggs he needs Need such an interesting concept when for most of the city twelve eggs represent twelve days with a meal The boys get to see the Colonel s daughter ice skating on the river It took me a few seconds to realize why she looked so strange and then it was obvious even at a distance you could tell that the girl was well fed There was nothing pinched and desperate about her face She had an athlete s casual grace her pirouettes were tight and fast she never got winded Her thighs must have been magnificent long pale and strong and I could feel my prick hardening for the first time in days Rain down on me ladies Peter Paul van Rubens detail from The Disembarkation at Marseille Lev hasn t seen a woman in a long time that he didn t have to mentally add weight to her figure and her face to determine if she used to be pretty I finally fell asleep and dreamed of a sky raining fat girls Their task takes them behind enemy lines where they meet pretty Russian girls kept for the amusement of the Germans cannibals who have learned that the buttocks make the best steaks and a female sniper named Vika who Lev falls head over heels in lust with I was raised to be clean and it bothered me when others were not But Vika s wet dog smell did not offend me All of us were slathered in grime by that point of course I must have stunk like week old fish myself but this wasn t about being inured to foul odors The tang off her body made me want to lick her clean It is such a burden to be virginal sigh I ve lost track of how many days it has been since Kolya took a crap It is somewhere around twenty days He has decided that his bowels are waiting for the end of the siege the siege ended up lasting 872 days He is looking forward to feeling the relief of a VICTORY CRAPDespite the stark circumstances that provide the backdrop for this novel there are many moments of unexpected humor that lend brevity to the growing frustrations and dangers in trying to achieve their mission Watching the evolution of the friendship between two very different young men a Cossack and a Jew is not only heartwarming but memorable Lev s father a relatively famous poet who was disappeared by the NKVD looms over the story as ghostly as Hamlet s father Lev has the soul of a poet but lacks the gift to express it Kolya is working steadily each evening when he hasn t found some woman willing to help him with his continually heated loins on his novel title The Courtyard Hound I have feeling his writing is spicy It all comes down to a game of chess but then isn t all of life a game of chess We make sacrifices pawns rooks and bishops and hope the results prove worthy of what we have given up The longer these two young men are together we can see their minds expanding exponentially just because one is with the other If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also
