Ward delivers, as usual! Great read!
This book is a true representation of Russia during the Communism reign. I went to Leningrad and Moscow on a school tour in 1981 and reading this book flooded my mind with memories. Leningrad is described exactly like I remember it. The chandeliers in the underground Metro station, the line-ups on the streets, the crazy line-ups in the stores which stock nothing, right down to the foil wrapping on the chocolate bars. A great book to get a feel for Russia in the time preceding the fall of Communism, a country that is dear to my heart.
