August 11, 2016 –25.0% "Honestly, every time punishment is mentioned in this book, I get tense. It's gruesome in the extreme. My particular favourite (!) is impalement through the anus. Each time this is the answer to whatever human has caused a problem, it makes me shudder..."
August 12, 2016 –40.0% "I'm going to add 'tongues ripped out' to my list of fun Russian punishments. Montefiore writes that one woman had hers ripped out so violently she passed out. My thought was: who the hell doesn't faint when they have that happen? I had my tongue pierced when i was younger and nearly face planted."
August 15, 2016 –70.0% "Never have I been so pleased that i'm not a member of a specific family. Though my family Christmas day celebrations makes me feel somewhat similar about being part of mine."
