So glad I did--great story, lots of suspense, a real page turner. I enjoy historical fiction, because I want to learn something new as I'm enjoying a story. I was born before Stalin's death and grew up during the Cold War, a very fearful time I well remember as a child.
Most students of history know about the horrid days of Stalin's USSR--but to really understand the terror, it takes a book that tells a story of realistic characters that flesh out what those times were really like. Child 44 is a book that does that well. I'll be purchasing the other two books in the series, knowing that the era of Nikita Khrushchev has begun at the end of Child Highly recommend!!!
Child 44 is a book I never would have picked up on my own.
It's this month's book club selection. When I began reading it, I had no knowledge of what I might be getting into or even what the book was about. The first chapter turned my stomach, painting a picture of starvation, bitter cold and fear in Russia.
But I hung in there. The story fast forwards twenty years. Leo is a rising star in the MGB, the state security force. He's assigned to look into the death of child, whose family insists he was murdered. The communist state brushes the child's death off as an accident. Leo is a war hero, who loves his country, is loyal and follows the state party line. His wife Raisa, is a teacher who goes along with the state as a way to survive. As Leo and Raisa close in on the serial killer, desperately trying to stay a step ahead of the government's relentless operatives, the reader races with them through a web of intrigue to the novel's heart-stopping conclusion.
