It was one of my favorites.
I think he brought a personality to the book.
Not a moment but the story about the American embassy in the beginning.
I just liked the way things were explained and the flow of a book filled with so much information. well told!
Nothing I can't think of anything except a great ending could have made it a 4 or 5 star book
A better ending
Don't Think so
The ending, The sister getting blown up, The depressing state of a lot of people that you come to like.
It felt like she went into the book without a plan or knowing how it was going to end.
I felt I didn’t get anything that I didn’t already get in her book Gulag. Also I found myself getting a little bothered like she was trying to convince me of something instead of history’s story of what happened. Also I thought it was a little obnoxious her view on how technology will become tools of control in the future. I don’t know…maybe too much of her personality coming through in the book. Which maybe that’s a good thing but not for me. She also didn’t reveal very much things from thr Russian side of things and how they must have viewed the war.
I had no problem with the person reading the story
her view on how technology will become tools of control in the future.
It just rubbed me the wrong way I guess when I really liked her "Gulag"
