Excellent narration matched to timeless short stories. Russia is a cold and different world from America and these shorts are a good, yet tiny, introduction to the world of Russian literature.
its already been done and it was "Goodfellas"
If I read the unabridged book first I'm sure I'd feel different but this abridged version of the book just isn't enough. Every once in awhile the movie is better then the book and this is one of those times . don't waste your time or credits.
All that being considered it still is a great true story and amply performed by the readers. I recall it was read by mail and female cast not just by Pileggi
I feel horrible giving 1 star ratings to someones true life story. It just bored me to death. I'm sure other people will enjoy the listen but it was not for me. I listened to it 3x fast and still couldn’t find one section of the book that stimulated me. I have less then ¼ to go but I just don’t think I can bare it.That being said I bought this in part to support Salman Rushdie. I have a tremendous amount sympathy and respect for him and his books, just not this one.
