City of Thieves is the story of Lev and Koyla, who have been given an impossible mission (find a dozen eggs to secure their freedom) during the siege of Leningrad in WII Russia.

David Benioff has written a wonderful, funny, harrowing, coming of age story that was able to keep a sense of humor even while describing the tragic events that took place during the siege. By far one of the best historical fiction books I've ever read.


I will be reading more books from David Benioff!
