"Ingenious...Phillips presents his characters with a wry generosity and haunting poignancy to rival his wonderfully subversive wit." (The New York Times)

What did this book have to do with Prague?
I just finished this book. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I did make it through it. I basically understood what passed for a plot. It was even interesting, given its setting. However, the characters weren't people I liked. As I got farther and farther into the story I couldn't wait for them all to just go away, which they did. So, my recommendation would be to read it if you are interested in the era of history after the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe. Hungry does have some interesting history, and I did feel like the author had a healthy respect for this. But what did any of it have to do with Prague? I believe that city was mentioned only a few times in the whole book.

Don't waste your time
Some of the language used here is fantastic. Unfortunately, the book needs to be edited, and radically abridged. With a printed book, one can skim paragraphs and pages quickly. With an audiobook, the need for better editing is painlfully obvious.
