The Russian Dreambook of Color and Flight by Gina Ochsner

The Russian Dreambook of Color and Flight - Gina Ochsner

It started off nicely at first, and I was interested to see what would happen, especially to Tanya, Olga, and Yuri. The other characters were more abrasive, and didn't seem to offer as much, but I continued. Unfortunately, the book sort of started to drag, and it just didn't feel like the story was strong enough. Towards the very end, the writing was rather tedious, with lots of pseudo-philosophical conversations that were just meaningless filler.
