No catches, no fine print just unadulterated book loving, with your favourite books saved to your own digital bookshelf. This review is provided by bookgroup. This is a story painted on a wide canvas. Set in the aftermath of the Russian Revolution in remote Sibera, a story of love, destruction and evil unfolds. Not for the faint hearted, this novel will take you on a journey so long and vast, it evokes an earlier epoch in storytelling.

This is a story of such size and extremes. Where to start in trying to give a sense of it? There is a fantastic sense of time and place, a clash between groups, characters, ideologies and ultimately between good and evil. Man struggles to make sense of the world, to gain happiness, particularly so in this land of extremes. There is true wickedness and a powerful force of destruction, in a meticulously drawn plot, richly peopled with a multitude of characters.

This is a satisfying chunk of Russian history that it is a real pleasure to discover. It is the aftermath of the Russian Revolution, in the tiny village of Yazyk, in a frozen and forgotten corner of Siberia, the remote cousin of the vast sprawl of Russia.
Siberia is wonderfully drawn as an unkempt, slothful and derelict land, incapable of feeding its people and reluctantly feeling the aftershocks of Revolution. This is a fitting backdrop for acts extreme brutality and cruelty, for the multiple horrors and repeat tableaux of desperation and decay. Here nothing matters and no one cares. Into this festering landscape Meek has positioned key groups - a garrison of Czech soldiers that has been forgotten and left behind, an isolated Christian sect, whose members are committed to becoming angels and the Red Army.
Out of this muddle emerge important characters who carry the narrative - the insane Czech commander Mutula, his nemesis Mutz, the Christian leader Balashov and local widow Anna Petrovna. Their static world is shattered by the arrival of Samarin, who does not so much represent the destroyer as destruction itself.
In he crossed the border from Kuwait into Iraq, following the invading American armies to Baghdad in a small group of journalists that included Dexter Filkins. In Meek published Private Island , a collection of essays, mainly from the London Review of Books , about the privatisation of Britain. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
