4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read, 7 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Man in Russia: And The Struggle To Save A Dying Nation (Kindle Edition)
Have just finished reading this book and admire anyone who can spend so much time in the awful cold or heat, travelling in ramshackle buses and trains out to nowhere, in order to trace the life of a deceased (and failed ?) priest.

It is a very interesting way to trace the reasoning behind the incredible alcohol consumption and falling population within the USSR, now Russia.

However, if you are not already familiar with what went on behind the Iron Curtain, then this book may seem a little dull.

I personally found it of good interest, but not as super as his previous book "Let Our Fame Be Great" on the Nth Caucusus.
