    This is the story of two people Aldo Gardini, an Italian, and Katerina, a Russian This novel weaves their story, both together and independently, from the 1920 s up until the early 1950 s Although they come from very different backgrounds, they meet during the war, when Aldo is taken prisoner by the Russians One day, Katerina approaches him as he leans against the fence of the camp and passes him a piece of bread He, in turn, passes her a little wooden fish he has carved The act of kindness inspires a hope in Aldo which has previously died Although he can see no life beyond the camp, he is desperate to return to Venice and take vengeance for a terrible act which occurred before the war The author creates an evocative and moving story and I liked both the main characters particularly the street wise and foul mouthed, childhood Katerina I did fee...

    This is probably a good book I was disappointed as it was not exactly what I expected I must have misread the synopsis or put too much expectation on the title But it is a good book about survival, resilience, but also revenge and how useless it is, a book about how it is sometimes hard to find out what the truth i...

    This is a thoughtful read its got a good mix of description and dialogue and is quite a tear jerker in parts I also thought it was quite an evocative read I felt sorry for a number of characters and was keen to discover what became of them as time moved on Speaking of that, I did feel a little confused by the chronology at times but never the less it was a generally good read and I felt there were some quite important themes covered in the book ...
