Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. I enjoyed this book. it takes place primarily in 1996-97, and was written in 2001. Reading this after the most recent events in the Ukraine/Crimea, it is astounding how so many things can happen.
The opulence and the inflation and the fortunes won, lost, and held on to for dear life... quite compelling.
I know very little about banking, and these portions are definitely confusing and harder to follow, but overall, this book was a good read.
Any additional comments?
This book is an interesting look into a country that has been a bit of an enigma to me. The narrator was a good choice as well. I think I would have wished a bit more personal touches to this book, but that's a minor quibble in a suspenseful chronicle... I can't imagine a life where hefty bribes are the only way to get things done.
