One thought on “Have Personality Disorder Will Rule Russia: A Concise History of Russia

  1. Amanda

    A crash course in Russian history I know just enough to know that she just barely scratched the surface, but if you re starting from nothing, it s a relatively decent starting point That said, I would have appreciated info on Russian history, and less emphasis on modern politics much of which I skimmed.

  2. Kathrin

    I received a free copy of this book This really is a short overview of Russian history And it being too short is the main negative point for me I know it s supposed to be a companion novel to her other book about expat life in Russia but to be honest I would like to read of this one than the other I guess the funny way of writing and sometimes sarcastic overview was what I expected from the original novel But it wasn t delivered which made it even interesting to read this companion book I may [...]

    Have Personality Disorder, Will Rule Russia is the slim companion book to Jennifer Eremeeva s memoir Lenin Lives Next Door When writing Lenin Lives, Eremeeva worried that readers wouldn t be familiar with numerous historical references she dropped throughout the book So she compiled notes on Russian history, which eventually became so numerous that she turned them into Have Personality Disorder As hinted in the preface, it s meant to be like the CliffsNotes of Russian history, covering all the b [...]

  4. Lamadia

    This wasn t what I was hoping for It was less about the idiosyncrasies of Russia s rulers and a general overview of Russian history organized by ruler It went too fast and seemed to gloss over the majority of the rulers A good half of the book is about the very recent history, and that was the better part It s interesting to hear this history from the first person perspective of an American ex pat who s been living in Russia for so long She was there when it was the USSR and has a husband who w [...]

    Short and sweet, although perhaps a little too short I knew what I was getting into with this whisper thin volume of the history of Russian rulers, but even given that, it left me wanting A recent interest in Russian history prompted me to look for a brief overview of Russia, especially her noteworthy rulers, and that s how I found Ms Eremeeva s book I understand that this particular book is meant as a companion piece to her now published blog about emigrating to Russia and her cultural adventu [...]

  6. Ron

    Jennifer Eremeeva writes about what she knows and it shows.Pun nonwithstanding, her express trip through Russian history from the point of view of a tourist guide with inbuilt audience is at once illuminating and seriously funny, and at times uncomfortably serious without much time to adjust from one frame of mind to the other.All in all quite appropriate for her chosen subject.Reading her conversations with her husband, daughter and friends debating Russian history and politics, adapting her vo [...]

  7. Debumere

    Update it s meant to be a companion book to her others Will get those on board I cannot honestly rate this because I m not sure what I just read Never thought I d say this but it was too condensed It was packed full of information and I was sincerely overwhelmed by the content It was too much for my brain to absorb and I m not sure why the author didn t expand on it a little , allow the reader to breathe through it Not deleting from Kindle but will revisit when I m 92 My brain should be powerfu [...]

    i wish Jennifer Eremmeva would write one for every country As promised its concise Like her other book on Russia, Lenin Lives Next Door it is witty and hilarious I studied Russian History at an Ivy League University but thes Cliffs Notes have far standout power Jennifer can you take on a concise history of China

  9. Jill

    A good, quick history of Russia that doesn t go into too much detail but gives one the Cliffnotes which is all I really wanted from this Humorous enough to keep from getting boring I d read it again.

  10. Liz

    This was a humorous view of Russian history I enjoyed it If you are looking for a short book on the subject I would recommend it.
