What can I say.. The majority were awful I was fooled by the lovely cover and the first story which was on line. I wonder what the sales would have been if the next few came first!

4.0 out of 5 stars A mixture of good and not so good/or awful short stories, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I counted about 20 good stories and 10 bad to awful ones by the time I reached near the end. At least it gives you an idea about the whole spectrum from excellent to awful. Much better than my other purchase ' The best British short stories 2011'

Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar
Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar
by Simon Sebag Montefiore
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A monumental book, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am at the moment reading this book which is an epic undertaking- I am not a historian but coming from a neighbouring country to the previous USSR and having some interest in this subject I bought this book for a relative for his postgraduate history studies and my own enlightenment. I miss reading at the beginning about the relationship of Stalin and Lenin and there is little about Trotsky. But the author does give a very intricate and exact account of Stalin and his actions. He writes fairly pointing out the man's positive and negative aspects and informs us of what we knew about absolute power. 'Absolute power, corrupts absolutely....'.In some ways the book reads like the account of several serial killers who slaughtered people in 1000s thus gaining a place in Guinness Book OF Records as the most prolific killers of human kind on planet earth. Marx and Engels would have been horrified.
Now after reading this book we know why socialism in that vast country with all its hopes failed. The criminal gang of Stalin, Yezhov, Mekhlis, Beria and other cruel leaders at the top destroyed any vestige of humanity, or socialism that could have flourished after the October Revolution. The opposition in US and Europe although not without fault over came this sick version of socialism and it is no surprise that they did. Out of Fascism OF Hitler, Stalinism( not socialism by a mile), and capitalism of west the latter was the best of the worst evils..... and won through...
As Joseph Stalin himself before his truce with Hitler at the beginning of the war said , people had 3 choices in Europe of 1938, Fascism of corporal Hitler, The sick socialism of Stalin, or the capitalism of Chamberlain and his French and other allies. People chose the latter and today the question should be posed again what are the choices and the best choice?
