I had thought it was a story about the end of the Soviet Union and that I would pass on the book to my Mother to read. Changed my mind on that....To me it read more of a novel that happened to take place just prior to the end of the Soviet Union, and was just an exercise in trying to work in as many descriptive sex scenes as possible....quite disappointing.
