Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
From the critically acclaimed author of The 25th Hour, a captivating novel about war, courage, survival — and a remarkable friendship that ripples across a lifetime.

During the Nazis’ brutal siege of Leningrad, Lev Beniov is arrested for looting and thrown into the same cell as a handsome deserter named Kolya. Instead of being executed, Lev and Kolya are given a shot at saving their own lives by complying with an outrageous directive: secure a dozen eggs for a powerful Soviet colonel to use in his daughter’s wedding cake. In a city cut off from all supplies and suffering unbelievable deprivation, Lev and Kolya embark on a hunt through the dire lawlessness of Leningrad and behind enemy lines to find the impossible.

By turns insightful and funny, thrilling and terrifying, City of Thieves is a gripping, cinematic World War II adventure and an intimate coming-of-age story with an utterly contemporary feel for how boys become men.

USA Today Benioff has produced a funny, sad, and thrilling novel. Entertainment Weekly Benioff blends humor and horror expertly. San Francisco Chronicle A deft storyteller, Benioff writes about starvation, cannibalism, and Nazi atrocities with poise and cinematic flair. If Thieveswere a movie, it would start out like Schindlers Listand end up like Raiders of the Lost Ark. People The novel tells a refreshingly traditional tale, driven by an often ingenious plot. He shifts tone with perfect controlno recent novel Ive read travels so quickly and surely between registers, from humor to devastation. New York Times Book Review City of Thievesis a coming-of-age story brilliantly amplified by its worn-torn backdrop. Benioffs finest achievement in City of Thieveshas been to banish all possible pretensions from his novel, which never wears its research on its sleeve, and to deliver a rough-and-tumble tale that clenches humor, savagery, and pathos squarely together on the same page. Washington Post City of Thievesis flat-out great. Benioffs screen writing chops are in full force herethe plot careens along with cinematic vervebut thats expected. The surprise is Benioffs understated wisdom and tenderness. - Mens Journal. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0452295297
