    "I'm going to follow this series!"

    What an enjoyable book. The characters, the situations and the mysteries delved into are "human enough" for anyone unfamiliar with Tsarist Russia to enjoy, but if you're familiar with "Crime and Punishment", the social strata of 1870s Russia or St. Petersburg, its even more engaging.

    The narrator did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life not by giving them Russian accents, but by giving them Equivalent British Accents, which works well for American listeners, who are better able to understand a character's class origins in this manner. I have NO idea what "high class" or "low class" Russian accents sound like, but British? Simple.

    Very enjoyable as a story, and a glimpse into a culture and world that is now long past. Do yourself a favor and give it a listen.
