#7 Breaking Stalin's Nose

Breaking Stalin's NoseBreaking Stalin's Nose by Eugene Yelchin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A peak through story and illustrations into the backstabbing, double crossing, world of Stalin's Russia and the blindness to its faults and horrors of a little boy growing up in it.

My thoughts while reading Breaking Stalin's Nose were that living in such a society is at the same time a repugnant and scary prospect. Also, said Communist society is eerily evocative of McCarthyism. Well worth the read.
