Format: Paperback
Written from the viewpoint of those living in Leningrad when they were besieged by the Germans. Very interesting read for those who enjoy historical war stories. This is historical fiction and very well written.

By Eric A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book revealed the hardships of people enduring a cruel and long siege in the most appalling conditions. It portrays some of the worst and the best behaviors of people but in the end the message is a positive one and one of hope

HASH(0xa7f1906c) out of 5 stars Haunting Nov. 23 2011
By Miss Melly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the story of Anna's stuggle to survive the siege of Leningrad, to provide for her family, to stay alive.
You almost feel guilty reading this novel with a full belly. Dunmore drives the hunger into your heart and the Russian winter into your bones.
It doesn't feel quite right to call this novel "beautiful", considering the subject matter - but it is.
Hauntingly beautiful.
HASH(0xa7f19360) out of 5 stars Winter and the Human Spirit July 21 2016
By adrian garai - Published on Amazon.com

A moving, disturbing and clearly well researched novel about the Siege of Leningrad. Helen Dunmore really drags the reader into the cold and privations of the situation whilst also giving some understanding of the bigger picture of the battle. I liked particularly that the author showed not only the struggle of ordinary people but also the terrible decisions that those in charge were making on a daily basis.
HASH(0xa7f193c0) out of 5 stars A must read Dec 31 2014
By Bob - Published on Amazon.com

She paints a picture with every word- I am so into this author! The reader is taken on a journey to death by starvation but on this journey we see also the art of survival, the depths of depravity some will sink to in order to preserve their existence and above all the utter stupidity of war. Must end now, I'm off now to read another Dunmore. Bravo - read it!
