5.0 out of 5 stars A.D.Miller--Snowdrops, 30 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Snowdrops (Hardcover)
A.D.Miller's first novel,and set in Moscow,is a very assured
and thoroughly enjoyable debut.
The novel is written as an address by Nicholas-to his future
wife,detailing the events of his last winter in Russia.
Nicholas is a lawyer in his 30's working on large corporate
deals in Moscow.His rather drifting life changes with a chance
meeting with an attractive young Russian female,Masha.During
their time together Nicholas becomes enmeshed in the endemic
deeply embedded corruption,from which it seems impossible to
escape.
Very entertainingly written ,with wry and often understated humour,
the book not only gives an interesting take on Moscow,but also
skillfully shows how the fundamentally decent Nicholas almost
inevitably becomes part of the prevailing amorality.

You seem to be a very lucky reviewer - having looked at all your reviews, you do not seem to have read a bad book - how can you be so fortunate?
