    Having lived in Russia for many, many years, this was really a book for me I wonder if the author lived in Russia too She must at least have spent some time there because she managed to capture the whole atmosphere and mentality wonderfully accurately The plot of this mystery is a little far fetched, but because the main character Viktoria is so believable and funny, I was happy to go along with the story Most of the big events could never happen in real life, as any Russian who has ever t Having lived in Russia for many, many years, this was really a book for me I wonder if the author lived in Russia too She must at least have spent some time there because she managed to capture the whole atmosphere and mentality wonderfully accurately The plot of this mystery is a little far fetched, but because the main character Viktoria is so believable and funny, I was happy to go along with the story Most of the big events could never happen in real life, as any Russian who has ever tried to get an American visa in day would know, but it s the little details, like the descriptions of the designer outfits, the servants, the traffic that make this book such a good read Plutin himself makes me laugh, he is such a caricature, with his petty traits, like his obsession with his height and the fact he takes everything so seriously If only all Russians saw him like that.Anyway, if you want to spend some time exploring the New Russia in an enjoyable and fun way, this is the book for you

    I m not joking when I say Who is Mr Plutin engrossed me so much that I missed my stop on the bus Like another commenter, I had intended to take the book to read on holiday but got too wrapped up in it and finished it before I left It s fun and fast, easy to read and with plot twists and turns that are impossible to guess at It was easy to dip in and out of, although hard to put down, and despite reading the book during a heatwave, Rebecca Strong s vivid descriptions of icy cold Russia left I m not joking when I say Who is Mr Plutin engrossed me so much that I missed my stop on the bus Like another commenter, I had intended to take the book to read on holiday but got too wrapped up in it and finished it before I left It s fun and fast, easy to read and with plot twists and turns that are impossible to guess at It was easy to dip in and out of, although hard to put down, and despite reading the book during a heatwave, Rebecca Strong s vivid descriptions of icy cold Russia left me shivering All the characters are well drawn and, for the most part, amusing, and though at times things feel as though they could be veering into the silly, the writer manages to pull it back to something believable It s funny too Yes, I LOLedthan a few times I strongly ha recommend this if you like your chick lit with a littlemeat on its frame, and I look forward to the author s future works And I really love the cover

    This is a book that suffers from a title that poorly captures its hilarious essence The matroshka doll cover does a far better job The short summary is this Our heroine wakes up one day in Russia, finding out she s living an alternate life and has no memory of that life prior to that original day Her story interweaves with the political menace of a Russian leader named Plutin guess who and his intrigues against a make believe country that is apparently Eastern European This amnesia t This is a book that suffers from a title that poorly captures its hilarious essence The matroshka doll cover does a far better job The short summary is this Our heroine wakes up one day in Russia, finding out she s living an alternate life and has no memory of that life prior to that original day Her story interweaves with the political menace of a Russian leader named Plutin guess who and his intrigues against a make believe country that is apparently Eastern European This amnesia thriller storyline is presented in the mode of a slapstick chicklit work think of the tone of the Shopaholic series , so it is clearly just silly fun Even as it is clear the author has several facts about Russia incorrect, it is forgivable for the sheer absurdity of the book Note I received this book as a free copy from NetGalley, in exchange for an unbiased review

    What a fantastic book From the very first page I was completely hooked Vika has such a wonderful voice, and as a reader, following her discovery of who she is after the hypnosis wiped her memories is mesmerizing There are so many twists and turns, intrigues, complications, the book kept me turning page after page to find out what was going on.Each character has their own agendas, and their personal twists and interactions with Vika are fantastic Vika s conflict between her husband and father What a fantastic book From the very first page I was completely hooked Vika has such a wonderful voice, and as a reader, following her discovery of who she is after the hypnosis wiped her memories is mesmerizing There are so many twists and turns, intrigues, complications, the book kept me turning page after page to find out what was going on.Each character has their own agendas, and their personal twists and interactions with Vika are fantastic Vika s conflict between her husband and father is truly a difficult one, and shows her strength and courage.I loved this book so much that when it ended I literally said no out loud, and flicked through for just a hint ofI just Loved it

    From the moment that Vika Serkova wakes up in St Petersburg trying to figure out whats going on, I was immediately drawn into the story and rooted for the funny main character Since shes gotten herself into quite some mess, it went through lots of unexpected encounters, twist and turns, always with a comical look on the contemporary Russion upper class and unavoidable culture clashes It was a fast and very entertaining read, especially because of the way that it is held together by its hilario From the moment that Vika Serkova wakes up in St Petersburg trying to figure out what s going on, I was immediately drawn into the story and rooted for the funny main character Since she s gotten herself into quite some mess, it went through lots of unexpected encounters, twist and turns, always with a comical look on the contemporary Russion upper class and unavoidable culture clashes It was a fast and very entertaining read, especially because of the way that it is held together by its hilarious heroine
