David BENIOFF, City of Thieves,
By Toni Munar, 1º Bachillerato EFL
City of thieves is a story based on the Second World War in Russia, where it was really difficult to get food. The two main characters are accused of stealing and deserting, and they’re sent by a captain to find twelve eggs for his daughter’s wedding. They go around the USSR trying to find the eggs, and the story basically tells how they get them.
In my opinion it’s a great story. I really liked it because I love History and adventure stories. The author makes you feel you’re inside the story, that you’re a tree or something like that, but that you witness what’s happening.
Although the book is quite long, the language is really easy to understand. Once you know the plot is finding the eggs you just have to focus the story on that.
I would like to recommend it to any person who likes History books.
