Would you listen to Just Send Me Word again? Why?
Absolutel! This book not only details the love story of Lev and Sveta but also deals with some of the political aspects of Russia that I was not familiar with. It also was quite obviously not exclusively a love storyl but a stoy of resilliance, trust, and a powerful network of friends and family, ordinary people.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Lev and Sveta. Keeping their love alive when it obviously presented such risk, particularly for Sveta. Also, all of the friends and family who helped along the way.
Have you listened to any of James Langton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I haven't listened to any of his other books, but perhaps I will listen to one that takes place in England. It took some geting used to, hearing Russian language and streets and events from an Englishman...
Any additional comments?
An incredibly important book detailing the history of Russia, and highlighting the story of two lovers who beat the odds.

Would you consider the audio edition of Just Send Me Word to be better than the print version?
Can't compare, but the audio edition was very good.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The emotional relationship between the protagonists was most interesting, but it was not enough. It was unrealistic to me that there was no comment (in these uncensored letters) about Stalin, the repressions, politics. That would have been most interesting.
