    The son of an English father and a Russian mother, Charlie Doig is a big man: in stature, spirit, and sexual appetite. In 1914, he is on a mission for the Academy of Science in Russia when war breaks out. Doig, who has no intention of being killed, returns to his home near Smolensk and to the woman he loves, Elizaveta. But imperial Russia is doomed. Trapped by the snow with Doig and Elizaveta are a motley collection of old aristocrats and two soldiers seeking refuge, one of whom, Doig fears, is a Bolshevik.

    Story

    There's a credit I can't get back. The summary sounded interesting, but as I was listening to it I just kept thinking about other things. My to do list for the day, work stuff, etc. It was like someone giving an endless speech droning on, and on and I'm just waiting for it to end. I didn't finish it, I got through the first part of the book and haven't touched it since. I had hopes this would be interesting, boy was I wrong.

    What would cause a talented young student from a wealthy family to shoot himself in the Alexander Gardens in front of a promenading public? Perhaps it might be the ennui and decadence so popular in France and now migrating over to the upper classes of Russia. The chief of the Criminal Investigations Division of the Moscow Police certainly thinks so, and paradoxically puts his newest recruit, Erast Fandorin, on the case.

    Story

    It was okay. After a few months I saw this book in my library and couldn't recall a single thing about the story so it didn't make much of an impression. But that's me, it may be very interesting to others.

    A tour-de-force novel set in ancient Japan filled with passion, fantasy, and feuding warlords. The first volume in the highly anticipated Tales of the Otori trilogy.

    Jody R. Nathan says: "Wonderful epic story"
    "Very enjoyable."
    Overall

    Beautiful book. I wasn't sure I would enjoy it at first. People complained a lot of the female reader being slow. But I found her narration very enjoyable. It was a great find.
