Are your nerves strong? Are you ready to subject yourself to a brutal intellectual shock? If yes, leave everything behind and listen to Sacramental, a grotesque fantasy where black humor intertwines with erotica, fantasy, manic philosophy, and music that pierces the deepest secret corners of your soul. You may not be able to withstand the emotional tension of this musical novel until its end, but one thing is certain, you will never forget it.
In response to David, no one suggested that this book was intended for beginning Russian speakers. As it is, simply its existance on a site like this is enough to warrant three stars. It is very difficult to find Russian text freely available on popular American websites, and an audiobook? Well, rare doesn't begin to describe it. The fourth star is granted as this is actually a rather good book. Good Russian authors are scarce (no offense intended) as it is difficult to sift through all the post-glasnost muck that's floating around. That this book was translated and transcribed into an English audiobook is perhaps evidence enough that it is not a 1-star book. For all the effort, it has to be worth it (and it was).
