really liked it
Read from November 15 to 22, 2010

I didn't want it to end and felt he could have gone on with these characters. Bleak, as one would imagine the siege of St. Petersberg vs. Nazi's in the dead of winter would be. But I was completely pulled in by the characters, the quick moving story, the suffering punctuated by moments of joy.

In the end, you are looking back at the Grandmother character going "now wait a minute...", but I'm not gonna hold it against the magician if he has hint of booze on his breath. The illusion worked for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
