"Never has such a tragic book had so much sex"

This is a lost diary of an 18-year old girl that was found by a cleaning lady in the bar toilet in the small settlement outside St. Petersburg, Russia. Nobody has yet claimed it and it’s understandable, the girl is dark, promiscuous and drunk half the time, she has no morals or any desire to have such, she sleeps around and fi

*I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a review*

Katya is a typical girl, struggling with family, jobs, and life. She makes mistakes just like everyone else, but isn’t that part of life? Learning from one’s mistakes?

It is a gritty tale, one that is heart breaking and sad in some areas and then in others I would just shake my head and wonder. It is a clever book, with broken Russian writing, but that's what makes it good to read. You are transported to another place and a

This book left me feeling disturbed. The main character is not very likable, I was really annoyed with her sometimes, her language is weird and her stories made me feel a little sick to my stomach on more than one occasion. I’m not sure how I felt about this book. It was weird but extremely engaging. Worth a read.

For some reason my imagination decided that the main character was Sasha Grey. She would be perfect in that role. Great book, respect to the author!

First impression - I wanted to say a big WTF to the author, close the book and never open it again but I had to see if it can get even worse. Katya is a head case who needs to grow up emotionally yet she’s fascinating in a sick, perverse way. Nearly everything is wrong with her.

My Katya and April:




Her friends and relatives are even worse or at least she makes us think so. Since the book is written in first person – Katya’s information is all you get and she’s not a very reliable narrator.
And tha

I reached out to the author requesting a copy of this book in exchange for a review as I was intrigued by the book's description. I was eager to read this book, expecting to have a voyeuristic experience while reading someone's diary (even if the diary was of a fictitious character). I was disappointed to find that this book is not written in diary format but in chapters like any book. Because of this and the overall content of the book, I would not consider or call this a diary at all but would ...more

ONE STAR or 4 STARS???

Well, I give one star. It was a very weird and not something I'm used to read but if you like that kind of book, it could also be a 3 or 4 stars.

My problem is definitely not because the author is mocking the reader but it's more the genre I've a problem with.
I see the main character as a lost girl, drifting in life and certainly not leading it.
Maybe she was defined by what her dad told her: "The best thig I gave you is your butt.If you really wanna achieve something in this

Well, at first when my friend sent me this book, I was, let’s say it, skeptical and didn’t expect much. But when I started getting into it I was surprised how much I actually enjoyed it. The main character is a girl who lives alone and does pretty much whatever she wants. She drinks “anything that burns”

has lots of sex with random people for reasons only she knows, for example when she had sex with her sister's husband in the bathroom or when she gave a hand job to a guy she was teaching Russia

***I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review***

I will state that I give this book 4 of 5 stars because I loved the real, rawness of it. First the main character, Katya has such a sad life in general with no real positive spin or outlook for her future..... she truly does not seem to know what love is...... BUT I do believe that throughout the story she was in love with her friend April (Abe) even though he did not seem to feel the same for her.... he cared for her as

For me this had a very slow start. It is not what I am used to reading and had such a depressing effect on me. However, the more I read the more I wanted to read and eventually found that I could not put it down. It is written sort of "dead pan" as if the main character is depressed. It seems as if nothing she does turns out right. However, I started to see the humor of our heroine. For example: "The flight was fine. There was a little incident in the beginning of the flight but it’s not even ...more

I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I'm not sure I know what to think about The Rusmolovo Diaries. Plot-wise, it was a little depressing, but at the same time, interesting. In many ways, it was a story about a young girl on the brink of adulthood trying to figure out herself and her relationships with men On the other hand, it's a bit weird, though it seems to be mostly tongue-in-cheek. I was disappointed by the ending, which is not a 'happily ever after,' though

I received a free copy from the author in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. This story was slow to start and I kept reading to see how it would end. It is depressing, sad and tells the life of an 18 year old girl in Russia. Katya has a hard birthday, her sister hates her, her mom tries to change her and her dad loves her. Her best friend April (Ape) is there for her and Katya wants more from him but he only wants to be her friend. The go on vacation together a few times, he helps her ...more

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

Katya is an eighteen year old girl who's struggling to hold down a job while she's simply trying to live her life.
She meets April who I believe was always someone who she was able to lean on and seek support from.

(view spoiler)

It was really a heartbreaking story about a girl who tries to understand what life has

This book is great. And even a little heartbreaking. I guess Russian novels are famous for not being overly concerned with a happy ending. I am very curious about the author. I wonder if the author is a woman or a man? I can't imagine a woman writing such compelling graphic details about sex. Anais Nin did it in Delta of Venus. . . I wonder if the author is even Russian- but somehow it has the ring of truth as if she were there. Hope there's a sequel.

*I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a review*

I likes it but was not blown away, it' a story about a young Russian Girl's life. Has problems with her familie, but has only two close friends April (Anton) and Masha.

She lookes strong but as you read the book you will see how vulnerable she really is and how she struggles to find love and happiness.

It was raw and emotional but this was not my cup of tea. Kudos to the writer for writing such a book which doesn't shy away from the dirty details of sex etc but yet, I couldn't find myself getting into this book. I find that my biggest turn off about this book was the writing. But nonetheless, it was a good book.

2/5

5 stars to the author for being honest and I’m glad that she doesn’t shy away from sex details and expressing opinions, it’s not what you expect from a book these days with everybody being so politically correct.
