What did you love best about Black Flagged Vektor?
Gives a fairly good impression of how drab and different Russian cities and apartment buildings, and life in them, can be. It can be an amazing country, but sometimes also very grey.
Did John David Farrell do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
The narrator's characters are very good. The story bits between characters are not so good, a bit wildlife documentary. One thing I can't get past, and the reason for this review is I hate his consistent mispronunciation of Spetsnaz - its an S (from the cyrillic C, pronounced Ss) not Shhhhpetsnaz. Its really annoying. The SF group in Russia is Vimpel, not Vymepel, but that's less annoying as it doesn't get used as much. There are some other Russian words which are a bit off too, which is sort of understandable - but you'd think with key storyline elements such as how you say 'special forces' correctly in Russian would be kind of important.

I don't usually get the audiobook but when I heard a sample of this one, I had to have it. This is one of the best read book I have ever heard.
