City of Thieves
by David Benioff
A fun odd-couple adventure set in the nightmarish reality of World War II. As strange as it sounds, this great book is all this and more.
When José recommended the book, he said something along the lines of great writing and amazing character’s relationship. It sounded a bit vague, but his enthusiasm made me add it to the queue. I now understand how it’s a difficult book to describe if you don’t want to spoil it. Coming into the story without know much, made it even more enjoyable.
Be ready to hold-on for a bit — it’s not all laughs, not all darkness. But highly recommended.
