One of my favorite audiobooks of the year! I enjoyed this book so much, I am picking it for my bookclub selection. Set in St. Petersburg during World War II, this is a combination of historical fiction and a coming-of-age story for the main character, Lev Beniov. Caught looting a dead German soldier's body, Lev and a Russian soldier are sent on the impossible task of finding a dozen eggs in a starving city during a killing Russian winter. Witty and so heart warming, this story is a winner.
