Kris' Books.

Female. Slavic mind. Avid reader.

 I read across a broad range of book genres, with an emphasis on Aus/NZ lit, Russian and Ukrainian literature, Latin-American literature and European history.


Моонзунд - Valentin Pikul,  Валентин Пикуль A really engaging and interesting book to read. I would recommend this one to anyone interested in a historical fiction novel concerning Russia's Baltic fleet of World War I. The time is 1917, so plenty of insight into the Russian revolution, and how it affected officers and sailors in the navy, is provided. Besides the history involved, the character development and overall writing style is marvellous.
