I guess I d hoped some synthesizing argument 809 While I knew I would enjoy the contents of this book I did not think I would ind it to be very readable After all it has been lingering on my shelves Remarkable Creatures for close toive years It outlasted all of my Fitzgeralds including The Last Tycoon which I had expected to be the last book I would inish in my mission to read all of the books I own But The Magical Chorus surprised me by not being dry and dense It was translated rom Russian so this may have to do with the translator but I ound it to be easy to read although it did take me over a month to inish but a lot of that had to do with life rather than the bookIn The Magical Chorus Solomon Volkov examines the ties between Russian culture writers directors composers performers and the leadership of the Soviet Union He begins just before the 1917 Russian Revolution and continues Chuck and Danielle following a mostly chronological path to the early 2000s when Putin came to power I have always been interested in Russian history and this book played to that interest without going into an overwhelming amount of detail If you are at allamiliar with global politics of the 20th century you will not get lost in this book I do not know much about Russian culture beyond passing amiliarity with Tolstoy and Chekov and Volkov did a good job of explaining the individuals in this book without relying on the reader to know all of the namesI think that what I liked about the book its accessibility would be considered a law by many people If you have a deeper be considered a Dogs Behaving Badly: An A-Z Guide to Understanding and Curing Behavorial Problems in Dogs flaw by many people If you have a deeper of the Revolution the Soviet Union and the Cold War and especially if you areamiliar with Russian culture during the Soviet era then this book probably seems to oversimplify and generalize a complicated time period and people Volkov grew up in Soviet Russia and as we entered the second half of the 20th century he began writing about people that he knew well or had at least met This amiliarity made the book seem less scholarly and gossipy although based on its accessibility I don t think scholarly was the goal Perhaps to a seasoned Russian scholar the whole book may have come across that way I know that I enjoyed the irst two thirds much than the last third although that may have also had something to do with the significant role that the intelligentsia played in the Revolution and the way that Volkov described Stalin s political approach to them However I would have expected culture to play as much of a role in the changes of the 80s and 90s and I did not enjoy the section detailing those uite as muchAll of that being said I liked this book a lot I am glad that I picked it up Puckster's First Hockey Sweater for its pretty cover and that Iinally read it Imagine condensing a 100 years of cultural history into 300 pages of incredibly dense prose with.
