    PDF/EPUB Ronan Bennett · Zugzwang Epub ¶ · zugzwang download, Zugzwang MOBII might have enjoyed this if I had an inkling of Russian politics The situation isn't adeuately described The main protagonists aren't identified other than by name It was almost impossible to figure out who was who and why things were happening And throw in the whole chess thing chess is beyond my scope of understanding so the boards and moves described in the book were pointless to me and I was totally cluelessThe events didn't happen in seuence which is very confusing For instance at one point two rough men with guns enter Otto's office after hours And the next sentence starts Two weeks ago and contains totally different characters It took a little getting used to Not a bad book but hard to understand Though it did have a few surprises and some great betrayals

    PDF/EPUB Ronan Bennett · Zugzwang Epub ¶ · zugzwang download, Zugzwang MOBIWhile the plot is somewhat farfetched the writing is interesting and the pacing is good The best part is the setting of Pre Revolutionary St Petersburg meticulously rendered by the author whose research is evident and if not evident then minutely detailed at the end of the bookThe central character seems a bit naive for a psychoanalyst but perhaps he like his patients is out of contact with the real world until the events of the book begin to shatter his lifeBennett has also written the Castrophist which was a finalist for the Booker Prize He is an Irish Writer wit
