It's a very interesting book with lots of historical tidbits, cultural insights, and a unique viewpoint from the numerous other WWII and mafia books I have read. Definitely wish another narrator had read/performed the book, but despite his mostly soft monotone and pace, he's far far from the worst amongst Audible's "Never Should Have Been Recorded" list.
On the whole, I enjoyed the book. There were parts l wished had been fleshed out a lot more and others I wish the author had skimmed. With all the WWII and mafia books, it's very easy to get caught up in the action, adventure, mystery, and of course, the intrigue; however, this book reminds us of the other side - the civilian side of a country struggling before war and then its occupation by 2 different foreign powers. We see their suffering and trials without becoming overly bogged down in the horror of war's collateral damage.
Carina is definitely a character and one I wouldn't mind having a cup of tea with.
