    Occasionally I come across an entry in that tragic sub genre of books the Wasted Opportunity Such cases involve a brilliant concept that doesn t live up to its promise, usually as a result of sub par writing and sexist themes Previous examples include The Dewey Decimal System and The Break I regret to say that Chocolate Lenin must be added to this list I really wanted to like it, but was rather disappointed The conceit is of course wonderful a mad scientist animates a clone of Lenin, who immediately resumes revolutionary activities Sadly, the execution is flawed I slogged through hoping it would pick up, but this was not to be The essential issues are as follows 1 The narrative centres upon a team set up to stop Lenin and unfortunately they aren t very interesting Vlad s self pity was especially tedious and recurred with baffling frequency At all times, I wanted to know what was going on with Clone Lenin and the mad scientist who created him Not only were they hardly featured at all, but ultimately view spoiler Lenin s death by chocolate superweapon yep and whatever happened to the mad scientist are not shown We only hear them discussed second hand hide spoiler

    Before I write anything else, I ll mention that this review is based on the last draft of Chocolate Lenin before publisher editing, so this is of a preview than an actual review.Chocolate Lenin is an interesting satire fantasy thriller set in the near future Russia It blends science fiction, adventure and thriller genres in an entertaining way it s difficult to combine these different genres, but in this case everything works perfectly It s a story about how a crazy scientist manages to recreate Lenin and what happens afterwards, when a special group tries to control things and stop a new revolution from happening Chocolate Lenin is a humorous and different kind of a book, because Graham Diamond has a slightly twisted sense of humour.Here s a bit of information about some of the characters and my thoughts about them Vladimir Vlad Petrovsky works hard to get everything ready for the eagerly anticipated constitutional celebration of the democratic New Russian Federation He has problems with his wife, because he works too hard Boris Sokolov is an older man who tells Vlad about Dr Mikhail Sunavich s work etc and asks Vlad s help Boris and Vlad are old acquaintances Boris has provided Vlad information on several government projects Rabbi Asher Isaac Titlebaum is a physicist, who became a rabbi He s a fascinating character Alina Vera Galina is a scientist who has worked with Mikhail Sunavich and Asher Isaac Titlebaum She s an interesting character, because she seems to be a bit reserved and suspicious about people around her The American man, Floyd Dingus, is also an interesting character He works for the Department of Agriculture and is sent to check the factory Madam Zaza, the psychic, is also quite a character Her brief apperance was memorable The recreated Lenin is a fascinating character, because he has the same political views as the original Lenin He s just a bit different kind of a character, because he isn t actually quite human.The author has created believable and three dimensional characters who have their own problems and motives, so the character development works nicely and supports the story I especially liked the way the author wrote about Vlad s life I also enjoyed reading about the relationship between Alina Vera and Vlad The author handled it exceptionally well, because Alina Vera and Vlad were strangers when they met, but gradually they began to trust each other as well as they could.The members of the special group are different from each other some of them are quite quirky , but they all have to work together in order to succeed in their mission, so there s a bit of tension between them This adds depth to the story.Character interaction is good and the dialogues are believable certain dialogues are a bit over the top, but that s a good thing, because this is a satirical book The story flows nicely and it s difficult to stop reading it, because the author has several funny surprises in store for the reader.Writing satirical speculative fiction can be a bit difficult, but fortunately there are authors who can write it and Graham Diamond seems to be one of these authors Graham Diamond writes fluently and engagingly about different subjects from politics to social situations I m sure that the author s zany humour will delight several readers I think it s nice that the author has chosen to write about the recreation of Lenin, because this subject gives him quite a lot of room to write richly and satirically about Russian way of life and culture.There are several funny and memorable scenes in this book For example, it was interesting to read about Ivan Pushkin s a factory worker encounter with the new Lenin It was also delightful to read how the new Lenin had trouble getting out of the city and how he talked to strangers The new Lenin s speeches were very interesting and amusing, because he spoke with heartfelt passion to his comrades The conversations of the members of the special group were also entertaining as an example I can mention that it was difficult not to laugh out loud when the members talked about the new Lenin s life force formulae.I m glad I had a chance to read Chocolate Lenin, because I enjoyed reading it It was a nice surprise the story fascinated me and I had to find out what happens at the end of the book This book appealed to my sense of humour, because I ve always liked good satirical fiction It also made me want to read books by Graham Diamond, because he seems to be a talented author I ll try to read of his books in the near future.Chocolate Lenin is a unique and satirical look at Russian society, culture, media, life and politics People who are familiar with Russian history and Russian way of life will probably get the most out of this book, but other readers will also like it, because the author writes fluently about the events if you re not familiar with Russian history and Lenin etc, you may want to read this article If you re interested in satirical speculative fiction and want to read something different, Chocolate Lenin is a fantastic book for you This book can also be recommended to readers who aren t familiar with speculative fiction, because it will without a doubt appeal to readers who are interested in satirical and humorous books.

    D U L L The dialog was consistently bland from beginning to end, and about 80% of the text is dialog This reads like a short story that got over inflated It might have been entertaining but the characters are bland and differ only in name Probably interesting if you prefer made for TV movies.

    This is a light read which will keep you entertaining until near the end, when it gets boring and predictable But if you are interested in historical fiction, this is a good book to read.

    A clever humorous look at today s insane world of tech, science, and social media The world is on the edge of reeling with the appearance of a returned Vladimir Lenin Five stars

    This book was bad.There were a few amusing parts, but mostly the parts that were satiric were just facepalmingly idiotic I winced and ran away several times, but for some reason was determined to finish to SEE HOW IT ENDS The author attempted to use lofty language, but words were used incorrectly several times The prose was dense and repetitive The ending was fairly satisfying.If anyone is an actual Russian and read this, I d be interested in how accurate the portrayal is.
