    "Dark and dismal!!"

    This is one of the most dismal, no hope books I've ever read. From the things we've ever heard or read about Russia/Soviet Union, this just confirms what we think/believe about suppression, loss of hope, etc. The character is a student who can't afford to go to school anymore, barely exists in a small room, has pawned everything just to have a little bit of money, and then murders someone for what he thinks she may have but gets so overwhelmed with his guilt that he spirals downward and feels like everyone knows he's guilty. It was terribly depressing with the descriptions of life in Russia.

    "Breathless"

    By which I mean to say that the narration had me positively exasperated. There were so many gasping breaths and turn-blue-in-the-face strings of sentences that I found myself concentrating largely on the reading of the book and not the story. The novel is mediocre, extremely slow in places, riveting and suspenseful in others. Any novel that does a half decent job at getting into the head of a confused sociopath earns at least two stars in my opinion. All in all, by the end of the story, I was more than ready to put down my iPod, choke the narrator, and send myself to Siberia.
