I always end up bogged down when it comes to Soviet Russia. I was flying through this book, enjoying the heck out of it, and then comes Soviet Russia, and my desire to pick it back up just falls through the roof. I'm fine with all other parts of Russian history, but that particular time period just kills any desire I have to read pretty much anything. I cannot explain it, but there it is.
I'll pick this back up eventually, I'm sure, because I do want to know how it ends, but I'm kind of tired of forcing myself through one page at a time right now.
