really liked it

i both love and find depressing the fact that this is so honest and true about the way life really works. a real antidote to miss pettigrew...
i read it to follow through on my resolve to read more french and russian literature.
it's also a really interesting look at the hope for change that comes after war and is then quashed by politics.
