CHILD 44 is the debut novel for Tom Rob Smith, set in the dying days of Stalin's Soviet dream society and inspired by a real-life serial killer. Starting in 1933, with villages of people starving to death in a desperate winter, the opening chapter of CHILD 44 deeply underscores the desperation of life in that environment.
Oct 03, 2015 · I first saw the movie based on Child 44. Intrigued, I wanted to read the book. So glad I did--great story, lots of suspense, a real page turner. I enjoy historical fiction, because I want to learn something new as I m enjoying a story. I was born before Stalin s death and grew up during the Cold War, a very fearful time I well remember as a child.
Child 44 is a fiasco by its own free will. This weekend’s Communist period piece “Child 44” has suffered an incriminating fate that even “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2” avoided: Russia banned it right before its release, stating that the film reflected upon the nation with evocations of Mordor (the evil land from J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings”), and in an equally damning.

This book is nowhere near the standard of his first book, Child 44. To make sense of The Secret Speech you need to read Child 44 first. But doing so will raise your expectations only for them to be dashed later. The first part of The Secret Speech describes well the confusion in the Soviet Union following Khrushchev¿s denunciation of Stalin.

Tom Rob Smith Booklist Tom Rob Smith Message Board. Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Child 44; This is the story of an MGB agent in Soviet Russia trying to solve the mystery of a series of child murders. The novel begins with two little boys living in a small village in the Russian wilderness.
Child 44 is an amazing book. It has great characters and a suspenseful and tense plot. I especially enjoyed the historical setting of this book, Russia under Stalin s regime. Yes, Child 44 is fiction but the author tried to incorporate many factual events into his work, making it a well-rounded and complete novel. This is an impressive debut novel.
My favourite book is "Как живёшь, Наречие?" (How Are You, Adverb?). This is a Russian book and the author is Tatiana Rick. But it's not really a book, it's a school book. It's about the adventures of Eugene Apelsinchik, his sisters Katya Apelsinchik and Julia Apelsinchik and teacher-fairy Svetlana Danilovna.
"Child 44 not only is one of the best mysteries of this year, but it is one of the most remarkable and original debuts in recent years. Set in post WWII Stalinist Russia, Child 44 works equally well as a hard-boiled novel, a political thriller, a regional mystery and an emotional, even romantic story about a couple rediscovering each other.
