My FAVOURITE book of the year From the first sentence Of this book I was hooked.What would it mean to be born Stalin s daughter, to carry the weight of that name for a lifetime and never be free of itFrom her days in the Kremlin, to her defection to the US Svetlana Alliluyeva s life is a fascinating and an emotional read both historically and psychologically The title of this book is not an exaggeration, Svetlana Alliluyeva s life was extraordinary and tumultuous and Rosemary Sullivan s research and writing is outstanding I found this a compelling biography, packed full of history, fast paced with plenty of emotion I had the whisper sync version on kindle which enabled me to read and listen to this book I perfer to read historical books but loved listening to the pronouncations of the Russian names of places and people and the narrator was very easy to listen to The kindle version has plenty of photos and a family tree which is such a bonus I think readers who enjoy Russian history will find Svetlana s story facinating reading I just loved this book and although it took me close to two weeks to finish it, this is because I savoured every sentence and spent so much time googling people and places I didn t want the book to end and the hardback copy is on my Christmas Wishlist as this is a book I want in my Library. Audiobook I ve been taking some long trail hikes recently hiking 2 and 3 hours every other day Listening to this story became tedious I certainly didn t get any voyeurism satisfaction.which at timesI had the thought, the setting creates We learn the history about Stalin s daughter, Svetlana.The Kremlin Years, The Soviet Reality, Fight to America, Learning to live in the West We learn basic facts about her mother, her brother, her relationship with her father, Russian dictator, Joseph Stalin , as a child. and as a teenager We learn about her studies in American History, her close friend who was Jewish..and her first love We learn of Svetlana s first marriage the birth of their son We learn about her second marriage the birth of their daughter We learn about the man from India she loved and marriedand his death.We continue to learn Svetlana was a cooperative defector..a kind, friendly, quiet woman When she came to the U.S She left behind her children married again in the United States birth of their daughter Whew By now MY BODY was exhausted just thinking of all the babies she had.I was getting exhausted by details and names dropped Another divorce.another move into another house Another lover yet to come or maybe I was in need of a break from hiking At times this story was as dry as the dirt I was walking on For all the editor police just might add this novel to your pile of books to send to The Editor s Jail I would have enjoyed this book just as much honestly even if 200 pages were missing Weeks of listening to this audiobook made my brain hurt after awhile Yet, author Rosemary Sullivan, makes sure we remember THE MOST NOTED DEFECTOR in the United States in the 20th century 3.5 stars
