5.0 out of 5 stars Kaliningrad Sunset, 1 Feb. 2012
This review is from: It's Time (Russian Edition) (Paperback)
At first I thought Pavel Kostin's "It's Time" was going to be a 21st Century Catcher in the Rye set in Russia, but then it sets off into the summer sunset of the naval port's docklands. If you are learning Russian like me, this is a nice way to do it - because the book is full of powerful descriptive passages, bustling dialogues between original characters and the odd diatribe about the nature of life and art. This makes reading a pleasure, even if you depend on a dictionary a lot of the time.

I like the way Kostin's main character stays positive against a backdrop of decaying industrial sprawl - I don't know why this strikes me as a non-commercial version of 80's punk, but it does just that and I thought it very refreshing.
