I really enjoyed this book. I thought that Luke's refreshing honesty and comprehensive review of his years in Moscow were wonderful - and it was fascinating to read of the tough time he and his family had.
Personally, I felt that the book could have been edited a little better - with explanations in the latter part of the book often referring to things that we had already been introduced to. I also felt that some of the "field trips" (for want of a better word) in the middle of the book were extremely similar to articles that I had read in the Guardian during Luke's time in Moscow.
Nonetheless a great read by one of the very few truly principled western reporters to have served in Russia in recent years.

it's an interesting book, which delivers a bleak picture of today's Russia. Harding gives a good delivery but I really really wish he didn't pronounce nuclear as nookular...
