Publisher's Summary

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2011
A riveting psychological drama that unfolds over the course of one Moscow winter, as a thirty-something Englishman’s moral compass is spun by the seductive opportunities revealed to him by a new Russia: a land of hedonism and desperation, corruption and kindness, magical dachas and debauched nightclubs: a place where secrets - and corpses - come to light only when the deep snows start to thaw...

Excellent Book

I have thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is refreshing to read foreigner/expatriate's perspective of real life in Russia with its beauty and ugliness well balance. The author is not patronising which is refreshing. Excellent Debut. The only complaint is narrators russian pronounciations. Inaccurate and not really good. However, his switch between british and american was pretty good.

Disappointing and a bit dreary

The actual reading was fine - the story was just a bit dreary and you could see what was going to happen almost from the start. The reading was a bit downbeat which added to the feeling of gloom. Atmosphere was good but it never really went anywhere interesting. So, overall, not terrible, but not worth getting very excited about.
