Not As Advertised

The title, "History of Russia," is misleading. It should be entitled something like, "An Anthology of Russian History." The first 4 hours and 40 minutes is a superficial recounting of 1000 years of Russian history. This is followed by a history of Peter the Great, Next up is a history of the 1917 revolutions and the creation of the USSR. I don't know what comes after that because I got fed up. The two readers to whom I listened mispronounced common words and place names with abandon. Examples: Leipzig, magnate, gendarme, dynasty, etc.

Dry

Very dry delivery. Speed narrator voice. Sounds like robot.

The content feels rushed. Pick another ebook

A good Place to Start

I hope you enjoy this audiobook, and I believe it gives you a better grasp of the Russian people. They are a great nation, and it would be good if more Westerner's understood them better.

A walk through Russian history.

It's mostly factual information. Any of the authors thoughts and opinions are purposefully easy to identify.

Very nice written book, not at all heavy as a book

This is a very good book for those interested in Russian history, particularly the very early years. Have enjoyed it a great deal.

Awesome work of book authors.

I needed a sense, a understanding of the country and this book gave me that. Russia is a country I knew little about and this helped immensely.

Awesome introductory history

Very easy to read unlike most academic history, and unlike many pop history books, the book is factual. An excellent introduction into Iranian history.
