Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, great perspective on life outside of the USA.
What did you like best about this story?
Great narrative; good storytelling.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
While it may be a little bias and it's clear the author has strong feelings I found it easy to get past that and enjoyed the book for what it was. Sure, there's some speculation but it's great to hear from a journalist living through history, a very disturbing history that most Americans and world citizens are probably oblivious too (I know I was/am). Very interesting listen and very engaging. All the more so, given current world events.

Very good book - the material was fascinating and well written. At first it seemed silly to hear the narrator switch to her Boris-and-Natasha voice when reading dialogue, but it does work, and eventually becomes disappointing when switches back to non-accented English. I've heard Masha Gessen interviewed and would have rather heard her do the book, but it was still very good.
