Read in February, 2012

Pretty good? A little slow to start, but ultimately a sad, sweet, and revealing look at the Cold War Soviets. Also very sad, even though you pretty much know how it ends. But it's worse to know all the reasons why Laika died (they rushed the whole thing b/c they wanted a dog in space on the 40th anniversary of the revolution, there was no way to even try to get her back down).
