The split narration is lovely and the translation adds quite a pleasant extra degree of surrealism as some of the turns of phrase are unusual. There are some very beautiful and believable moments but the story is extremely slow-moving and repetitive. The ending is quite peculiar and unsatisfying (and doesn't deliver an amazing twist as some reviews claim). The story mainly revolves around three locations in the same small town and there are far too many descriptions of what the characters are having to eat or drink. It held me just enough for me to persevere to the end, but I wasn't really looking forward to listening to it anymore.

Having lived through World War 2, I found this story extremely poignant and totally believable.
The narration could not be bettered, and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to both voices.
At no time did I feel my interest wain and I would recommend this book to anyone.
It is a story of the need for revenge, but totally understandable given the circumstances.
Whether or not you have personal experience of the war, I feel sure you will enjoy listening to the story and the gentle voices of the narrators.

This was one of those books that you can;t decide until you do.. Then it was really good! An eery twist to it that surprised me, had been caught up in the storyline and the accents were really good. So with this the characters came to life and I couldn't wait to carry on with the story. A really good download!
