Ruska zima by Daphne Kalotay Goodreads Author ,. Mirjana Valent Translator. Elena 's review Jul 13, Maybe 2. It was just extremely long and tedious and took forever to get somewhere. I loved the last 50 pages or so - they were more interesting than the previous combined! I honestly did not care since I did not have the slightest idea about where all of it was going and what the point of the story was, until the last fifth of the book.
First of all, the Russian situation during Stalin's rule was not set up well. For someone who doesn't know the history and what was going on - there was no introduction nor explanation. Again, I understand that this was not the point of the book, but some background history information never hurts! God knows she filled up her pages with plenty of random descriptions, could have used that space for something interesting and useful to the plot Other than that, it had potential to be a great story, I just think that it dragged out for way too long.
I knew that there was a secret in Nina's past from the first few pages, but then it was avoided for more than half the book - we weren't even given hints! Ok, so you clam up every time someone mentions your past?! Great - for me as a reader it gets to the point when i say "ok, don't tell me anything, i don't care to know anymore! I don't understand how Nina could have just ran without even talking to her husband?!
After all she had done to him with her constant secret abortions even though she knew he wanted kids , she didn't even give him a chance to explain! Ultimately, she cost him his life Just because she was self-centered all her life and thought only of herself and her career Sign into Goodreads to see if any of your friends have read Ruska zima.
