If you're interested in satirical speculative fiction, and want to read something different, Chocolate Lenin is a fantastic book for you.
A satire set in near-future Russia. Awash with light and charm, the story involves a crazed scientist's attempt at creating a new revolution as he causes pandemonium and uproar across the world.
A small, quirky, elite team must find a way to stop him.
