It's a very light read, very informative to those who know nothing about Stalin, not in a very direct way though, readers can understand that from the story. It is a good book because it finally shows something about the eastern part of the world, instead of focusing on Nazi Germany and Hitler, people realize that Stalin was as bad as Hitler.
A very emotional book, makes the reader realize the importance of family, the importance of being patient, and, how love can be the reason to continue living even in brutal circumstances.
I really recommend this book, specially when you don't want to overload your head, great read in vacation time! by MennaEzzeldeen
