It's in Russian!

Call it crazy but this book is spoken in Russian! Maybe my eyes didn’t see the fine print of spoken in Russian. I simply assumed that because the title was in English and the description was all in English that the spoken word would, in fact, be in English also. Ha Ha - It is not! Sooo.. if you like to listen to words that sound like they are being spoken backwards with the occasional “Niet” thrown in, do yourself a favor and find a nice English spoken book. Unless, of course, you are Russian then I am sure you will enjoy the listen - “niets” and all.
