This book was a complete waste of time, a soap box for the author to play house with a bunch of communists, using contrived dialog, situations and events to create a new version of the glorious October Revolution.
The Soviet revolution ultimately failed, as does this novel.
I tried to like this one. I really did. I made it thru the first three hours before I just had to stop.
The naration is horrible - the voice characterizations are annoying and frustrating - like listening to someone try to talk with a mouth full of honey.
The story wasn't any better. Plodding, fractured, and going no where.
