Considering the rave reviews this book has, it is not as good as I expected. It is a look into the culture of Russia with seemingly simplistic stories that do have a cultural purpose. However, the author is not radical enough to make his point. For it to truly be a cultural commentary, the author must go to the extreme, and he does fail to do that.
