    On the surface this is a simple, domestic tale Three elderly women are raising a little girl, Sofia, the illegitimate daughter of factory worker Antonina, who has been lucky enough to be allocated a room in the grannies communal flat While Antonina goes to work, often accepting double shifts, to support the makeshift family, the grannies tell their stories to little Sofia and reminisce about their lives, filling her head with images from Russia s troubled past Each of the old women has suffered immeasurably during the war and siege of Leningrad, losing homes and families Now they pour all the love they have into the little girl Life is hard The novel poignantly and vividly captures the atmosphere of 1960s Soviet life the daily drudgery to find enough food, the endless queues, the excitement of finding fabric to make a dress and managing to jump the queue and get a TV, the difficulties of washing and doing the laundry without a bathroom And interspersed with the minutiae of daily life are the memories of the old ladies and the unbelievable struggle they had to survive during the Siege, the hunger, the deaths, the cold Much of the action takes place in the flat, but we are also taken to Antonina s factory, to the shops, the church, the nursery where Sofia goes before the grannies take over With these three generations of women the reader has a moving and compelling account of life in Soviet Russia, all told from ...

    Oh man My kingdom for a regular lineal narrative I m too tired and distracted to fill in the gaps in a story If I want beautiful, evocative prose that grasps isolated snippets in time then i will heed towards poetry But when I read a story, I want a clear, directed narrative Maybe I m just a boring pedestrian lump, but with 3 boy children, I don t want to play cryptic crosswords when I read a novel, I also don t want poetry, I want to be lovingly caressed by the gentle intoxicating flow of a narrative.I couldn t finish this book This is the 5th book in a row I have borrowed form the library that I have had to put down due to the flimsy adherence to narrative structure It seems to be fashionable in writing at the moment, to challenge the way narrative is presented I guess we have to push an art form But honestly at this stage in my life I am to tired to give a shit about artistic pursuits I just want to be swept away with the suspension of disb...

    Sadly, I didn t enjoy this book as much as I hoped I would.The beginning was really captivating, the first few pages promised something emotional and magnificent But then hm, how should I put it The thing that looked like a beginning of a story turned out to be the whole story And that was terribly disappointing I feel like there was a story there an interesting and powerful story, but the author just refused to tell it and focused on the prologue instead The book needs editing It s really short as it is, but it still needs to be cut in half Half the scenes make no sense and feel like fillers I think the novel would work better as a short story, since there really isn t much story here to tell, just a good idea and an okay twist The three older women in this book, who were supposed to be powerful and infl...

    I read this to complete the Reading Women Challenge 2018 s challenge 7 A Book Set in Russia or by a Russian Author I ve decided not to rate this one in stars, because I don t think it would be fair to the book or author I found this story to be incredibly confusing, but I think that had a lot to do with my own interpretations, as well as reading its ebook edition It looks like the physical edition has about 100 pages, so I imagine that there were probably page breaks to signify narrator changes that were absent in the ebook edition This was where a lot of the confusion came from I ve never read a Russian novel befo...
