    ? Absolutely glorious! This book was surprising and delighting me at every turn. I picked it up based on the raving Goodreads feedback and the bear image (of course). But one page in I was hooked already. This book is more of a long novella than a full-blown novel. I loved the b...

    Red Russia was one hundred percent hilarious. I was laughing so much and hard that my throat and stomach kind of hurt today. Now before reading this book just know that is full of dark humor guys. However, it also has a dash of supernatural, paranormal, and some mafia shit thrown t...

    This book was hilarious and wonderful-- a bit like the movie The Death of Stalin if it was about an American trying to do business with the Russian mob and had a dose of astrological and occult humor. The corporate humor is on point, as are some of the jabs at Russian politics and soci...

    Brilliantly Witty Tanya Thompson is in a class very few attain as writers. I adore her books - and this one was so deliciously laid before me. I ate the entire novel in one sitting. She wraps one around her devilishly inviting fingers with her outrageous, yet intractably entrancing ...

    very funny. imagine master and margarita written by a dota player. ...

    I haven't read this piece of junk. I'm tired of all the fake accounts here recommending this garbage and the fake reviews. ...

    At times scathingly funny, at turns ridiculous, but it was always witty. Solidly witty writing is hard to find, hence my love of this. (Plus the author mentioned the walls being scrawled in Oscar Wilde quotes. That won me over completely.) ...

    I read this as my BRIC novel for Read Harder: it being a satire set in Russia, though its lead character would be the first to admit she is anything but. The book aims to skewer the current Russian oligarchy, and does a good and extremely entertaining job of doing this via action, come...

    "fat american language" that genuinely made me laugh. there's quite a few good laughs in this book. i'd call it a fairly accurate (though exaggerated for comedy) look at russia today. taken too far of course, but what the hell, it's a comedy. [why are there two listings for this b...

    I absolutely loved loved loved ASSUMING NAMES. RED RUSSIA, while not as good, is still an excellent book. Red Russia is not for everyone --especially not for those who have a difficult time understanding why swear words and foul language can sometimes be exactly the right word to conve...

    I'm given this four stars as it's a wonderful read and so compelling that I couldn't put it down. Perhaps even better than "Assuming Names." Both with similar themes of the outsider spilling all about her crimes and adventures. Both suffer from an abrupt ending. The first book has a al...

    I read this as my BRIC novel for Read Harder: it being a satire set in Russia, though its lead character would be the first to admit she is anything but. The book aims to skewer the current Russian oligarchy, and does a good and extremely entertaining job of doing this via action, come...

    "fat american language" that genuinely made me laugh. there's quite a few good laughs in this book. i'd call it a fairly accurate (though exaggerated for comedy) look at russia today. taken too far of course, but what the hell, it's a comedy. [why are there two listings for this b...

    I absolutely loved loved loved ASSUMING NAMES. RED RUSSIA, while not as good, is still an excellent book. Red Russia is not for everyone --especially not for those who have a difficult time understanding why swear words and foul language can sometimes be exactly the right word to conve...

    I'm given this four stars as it's a wonderful read and so compelling that I couldn't put it down. Perhaps even better than "Assuming Names." Both with similar themes of the outsider spilling all about her crimes and adventures. Both suffer from an abrupt ending. The first book has a al...

    I figured anything that mixes Ambien, alcohol, and heavy firearms was a surefire way to get my interest, but this books mixes so much more than drugs and guns. It?s like the Lovers card Thompson writes about. If she?s correct (I have no idea if she is) then the Lovers represent alc...

    clutch it baby insane pace what a rush what. a. ruuuuuuush. this book skipped 1.13 and 1:12ed it all the way and it effing clutched the goddam grenade launcher look at the effing pace legend (sry for the outburst, just showing my millennial creed) ...

    ? Absolutely glorious! This book was surprising and delighting me at every turn. I picked it up based on the raving Goodreads feedback and the bear image (of course). But one page in I was hooked already. This book is more of a long novella than a full-blown novel. I loved the b...

    Honestly I should not have expected anything less than wholesale mayhem from the author of Assuming Names. This is after all the author who wrote a memoir about the time when she was fifteen and ran away from home. She wasn?t a typical runaway either. She ran away to assume the title...

    At times scathingly funny, at turns ridiculous, but it was always witty. Solidly witty writing is hard to find, hence my love of this. (Plus the author mentioned the walls being scrawled in Oscar Wilde quotes. That won me over completely.) ...
