Sharp, spare, entertaining... Savour the quips and enjoy the show -- Mary Dejevsky, Independent
Amid its screwball rage this very funny book is also an unexpectedly touching one --AD Miller, Spectator
A scathing satire... The Senility of Vladimir P is a clear attack on the corruption and greed of Putin's Russia and a sharp reminder of how authoritarian rule can infect a generation -- Lucy Popescu, Independent
Blackly comic... A novel about an innocent who learns too late that when a country goes to the dogs, so, all too often, do its people--Daily Mail
An exciting tale of how even the best men can face temptation -- Irish Examiner
A story worth telling. Many of the events described are happening now and often not very far away--Guardian
As provocative and spiky as Look Who's Back, Michael Honig's The Senility of Vladimir P is a strangely moving, blackly funny and frankly brilliant calling to account of Vladimir Putin, of power and greed, and of our own moral complicity.See all Product description

The pace and pathos of the ‘Senility of Vladimir P’ will strike a chord with all adventurous thriller readers. This blockbuster, through its gently dark humour, explains what has made Russia what it is today, better than any historical novel. It is a ‘must read’ to understand why Vladimir P is acting as he is today.
The denouement of the final luxury watches scene is a real whodunnit masterpiece. Thoroughly believable blackmail.
Enjoy, learn and enjoy again.
PS Who is Michael Honig ? Is he Russian or an undercover spy ?
The Book is well written and Michael Honig manages to describe the problems with dementia perfectly as well as the huge level of corruption in Russia today and in this book also in the future. The Russia he paints for us is almost the same state as today.
All this would have been a perfect platform for an engaging story about the future of Russia or high drama in the future but for some reason Michel Honig has chosen to use this as almost the entire story and just added a minor situation with the male nurse. It is in fact the nurse that is the main character in the book and not Vladimir P. Unfortunately the nurse is not only on the border of stupidly naive but also unable to understand how his country works. You might feel sympathetic towards his struggle as you would towards a child but it is not enough to make you like him.
If you are familiar with Russia the situation that is described in the book comes as no surprise. But 300+ pages of daily corruption and dementia is in the end boring and you wish that something would happen to engage you interest.
If you are not familiar with Russia the insight into their daily lives as compared to daily lives in European nations will be an eye opener. Unfortunately it is all true.
I would have wished that the author had used his well crafted platform to launch a more interesting story.
