Russian book of the decade ?, 17 Dec. 2012
I had read rave reviews about this book before I purchased, saying that SIN was voted as the Russian book of the decade. I have to say I was surprised on the downside. The writing style as a stream of thoughts and memories was good, but I found it hard to piece together the different chapters and who the characters were. I found it hard to work out whether it was a single character or multiple different characters. Reflecting on my reading experience - I felt as if I was just an observer - I wasn't drawn in to the story at all. Perhaps, I have wondered, the experiences are not identifiable for me because I am not Russian?
