Publisher's Summary

From sensational storyteller Josh Weil comes an epic tale of brotherly love, a sui generis novel swathed in the all the magic of Russian folklore and set against the backdrop of an all too possible dystopian alternate reality.
Twin brothers Yarik and Dima have been inseparable since childhood. Living on their uncle's farm after the death of their father, the boys once spent their days helping and observing the fishermen, their nights spellbound by their uncle's mythic tales. Years later, the two men labor side by side at the Oranzheria, a sprawling glass greenhouse built over farmlands; a capitalist experiment that keeps the surrounding townspeople in perpetual daylight.
Work is now the only thing the twins have in common - stalwart Yarik is married with children, and oppressed by the burden of responsibility and the pressures of work, whilst dreamer Dima lives alone with his mother and rooster and spends his time gingerly planning the brothers' return to their uncle's land. One ordinary day, a bizarre encounter with the Oranzerhia's ruthless owner Boris Romanovitch Bazarov changes the brother's lives forever. When Dima quits his job and Yarik garners promotion, both men become poster boys for two very different ideologies.
As Yarik and Dima's paths increasingly diverge, they find themselves at the center of strange conspiracies, disasters, deceptions, and greed, that not only threaten to obliterate their bond, but divide the lives of everyone around them.
A thrillingly ambitious novel of love, loss, and light, set in an alternative present-day Russia.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I'm not sure how you could redeem such a depressing story. I’ve listened to hundreds of audio books and on occasion, I find one this relentlessly bleak. I'm not sure how anyone could redeem such a grueling and depressing story. I gave it a good 7 ½ hours, before giving up and deciding to dump this book.
