The year 1917 was pivotal in Russian history as revolutionary events changed the political landscape entirely. McMeekin's new history, written in the centennial year of the Russian Revolution, takes a fresh look at this tumultuous period in Russia. Narrator Pete Larkin's crisp articulation and resonant voice greatly complement McMeekin's study. Despite the audiobook's serious topic, Larkin has a friendly, likable tone, and his measured pace helps to present the facts clearly. He admirably pronounces the Russian words used in the text, providing a convincing accent while still making the words understandable for the listener. McMeekin's meticulous historical study is well matched with Larkin's conscientious narration, producing an audiobook that does not disappoint.
