Stalin's children ePUB

by Owen Matthews I really wanted to like this book.The family's story was compelling.However, the author's style was difficult to handle.Memoirs/histories are best told in straight chronological order.It takes a special kind of author and tale to be able to handle a story that moves back and forth between time periods.This book would have been better served had the author told his family's story first and then, in the end, shifted to his experiences in Russia.Every time I really started to get into the story of one of his family members, every time I started to be moved by their struggles, he would shift to his experiences in more contemporary Russia.It made for a choppy story.
