So bad that a certain grandeur creeps in
This may be a wonderful book, but the reading was so awful I couldn't concentrate on the content and gave up after about an hour or two. The reader does all of the dialogue (and there is a lot of it) in an absurdly exaggerated Russian accent. At first it was funny, but it got old fast. Don't waste your money on this one.
