I really enjoyed this book. It was one my roommate had recommended to me months ago, and I'm glad I finally got around to reading it.

This book had a very interesting premise, although I felt that the author strayed a little too far for the length of the book. The actual task itself (getting a dozen eggs) seemed like a side plot and was often pushed to the side for other aspects of the story. I'm a big fan of Holocaust stories, and I had never read one from a Russian perspective.

The two main characters had a bad case of 17 year old boy mouth. Not that cursing or sex talk really offends me, but I thought it was a little too present in some parts of the book. No need to reinforce that guys are always horny.

I'll definitely be reading more from this author in the future.
