City of Thieves

A novel of WWII featuring plucky residents of Leningrad and the surrounding areas and their encounters with the evil Germans.  The writing was good; the story was taut, but I guess this just isn't my kind of subject matter.  It's a small tale of two young men in their personal war with the Germans and their own countrymen.  And as neither a male, nor Russian, nor Jewish it just didn't have much for me to identify with.  It was okay.  It wasn't a bad thing to read, but it wasn't a favorite and didn't have me staying up late turning the pages.
