Lead Review

  • Book: Snowdrops
  • Location: Moscow, Russia
  • Author: A D Miller



Shortlisted for the MAN Booker Prize 2011 –
It is an interesting story and through reading it I recognised elements of modern day Russian society – as I have strong ties with Russia myself.

Would recommend it to anyone who wants a glimpse into Modern day Russia from a British perspective. It doesn’t paint Russia in the best light (as my Russian friends will agree) but I enjoyed it from start to finish. (Christopher Grosberg)
