My first book from Zhadan. I like his poetry and songs, but I didn’t like novel at all.

Maybe I didn’t understand it, but for me a lot of scenes from this book were too painful to read but it seemed like Zhadan romanticised his experiences and stories. Things that I wanted to forget from my past - those are the things that he cherished. As I said, maybe I misunderstood him, but book didn’t meet my expectations.

I had no empathy for these times and lives described.
