This is such an amazing book. But the reader insisted on doing a Russian accent any time a Russian was speaking. It ended up being super distracting.

This is a really good retelling of Putin’s rise to power and of the “collective Putin” that has run Russia through the first two decades of the 21st century. It provides a great deal of insight into intrigues and fills in important details missing from many Western analyses.
The only criticism I have is of the narrator. Between his inability to pronounce key names (e.g. he keeps saying “Volushin” in lieu of “Voloshin”) and his unfortunate decision to voice quotations from Russians with an “Ensign Chekhov” accent, he has detracted from an otherwise riveting book.
