Bucking the trend of narrators with English accents reading accounts of Russia, Dan Woren gives a very good reading of this interesting look at how political power really works in Russia. This Russian bestseller contends that Vladimir Putin is not the tsar of the new Russia but a creation of the oligarchy that runs the nation. Woren's resonant bass is clear, easy to understand, and appropriately expressive. His deliberate pacing makes this work easy to follow and gives an overall authoritative effect to the entire production. He reads quotes from Russians with an adequate enough Russian-sounding accent. Those who know Russian may find his pronunciation of certain Russian words a bit grating, but this is, overall, a very good production.
