BOOK REVIEW: The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin by Masha Gessen

In Books

Part of the book gave me what I wanted, the rest however, was a giant disappointment and a paranoid waste of time.

While the perceived horrors of this tale go almost saying, I was disappointed in the overall delivery.

This book was pitched as the unlikely “RISE” of Vladimir Putin. What we ended up with was a series of essays and journalistic reports chronicling a period of time featuring myriad suspenseful coincidences which may or may not be directly linked to the rise of the Russian president.

I don’t mean to undervalue the despair of the Russian people. I don’t want to take away from the very real brutality of the regime. And I don’t deny the rampant corruption in Putin’s Russia. However, this is not the book I asked for, and was promised, by title and description.
