Why this book?
Unfortunately, I rarely cross paths with anyone who has read this book, which is actually three books packaged together. It is a pulsing cross-genre masterpiece. The wild ride goes from Tolstoy’s Russia to the site of the Tungsten Meteor crash, to places I had no idea existed. An incredible glimpse into the complex Russian psyche, and fun as hell.
