I couldn't put this book down. I found it to be very interesting and I enjoyed the author's interactions with the people. Yes, there are a lot of political conversations but that is what Russia is based on. I highly recommend this book!

I found this to be a very-well written and informative narrative on recent travel within Russia. I thought I would make a recommendation - Tent Life in Siberia: An Incredible Account of Siberian Adventure, Travel, and Survival - to those that enjoyed this book.

My favorite part of this book was the author's travel descriptions, scenery, descriptions of cities, and so forth. My least favorite things were the author's interactions with Russian people. The conversations seemed constantly tainted by political overtones, or by the author's political interpretations. Author's opinions were everywhere. His opinions were often quite astute, but the reader exerineces some overload after a while.

Traveling some of the same roads and visiting the same places as few years after the author's account, I still found insight and candor that was refreshing. Occasionally a passage would almost blur with the intensity of his prose, but then refocus with a new clarity, and the overall effect was to make the reader believe he had been along all the time.
