Forget Russia is a historical fiction. It is the tale of three generations of a Russian Jewish family. The story focuses on Anna’s trip to Russia, then the Soviet Union in 1980, her great parents’ journey in the early 20th century. Anna is searching for a home and travels across the ocean on an Aeroflot plane when she is just twenty-two. She somehow travels to the past to find the future.
I found the story to be steady paced and enjoyable to read. It discussed a significant portion of history and revealed many back and fourths time frames to cover everything and provide a dynamic storyline. With such a beautiful story, I was disappointed with the cover design. It did not represent the rich content. Maybe the author wanted the focus to be on the interior, I wasn’t sure, but I did know that what I read was way better than the book cover design.
The literature was well written and told. Anna was a relatable character, and her personality was very intriguing. Her demeanor and story made you want to read the entire book till the end.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes historical fiction.Tweet
