What made the experience of listening to Breaking Stalin's Nose the most enjoyable?
The story is horrifying, so I'm not sure that "enjoyable" is the right word to describe it. I would say that experiencing the hell, that was Stalin's Soviet Union, through the slowly evolving perspective of a 10 year old boy, is both riveting and frightening.
What did you like best about this story?
I was immensely impressed by the relentless, unsentimental way that the story unfolds.
Which character – as performed by Mark Turetsky – was your favorite?
The main character, without question.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I found this book to be absolutely gut wrenching. It's impossible to listen to it, without being affected.
Any additional comments?
It's a very powerful book. It should completely dispel any "romantic" notions that anyone might have, about what life under Stalin was like.

This book was awesome! Everyone in the family (ages 3-36) was on the edge of their seat. The only reason we didn’t give it 5 stars is because we didn’t feel like the story gave us enough closure.
