Review: The story is an amazing catalogue of unforseen twists and turns, keeping you on the edge, it is the type of story you could believe, fiction can be stranger than fact and just as fantastic.

Review: I am only reading this as part of a book club recommendation. It was billed as a thriller, set in Russia with a slow start. The last two comments were worrying and it is certainly slow and grammatically poor. I have read in some of the reviews that it goes on to become interesting but delves into the realms of sci-fi. I am 10% of the way through and my heart sinks at the thought of reading any more, after the mammoth/bear/woman/empty-not-empty envelope. It is just not written in a way that makes me want to turn a page. Which is opposite of what others think. So, this 'far' in, do I give up or continue?
