What a story!

Extraordinary story of the hack of the 2016 election and activities of Russia. Very well researched fascinating, though depressing, to listen to.

Unfortunately, Peter Ganim has a completely inappropriate voice for reading audio books. Far too bass, drawling and slow.

Trump's Treasonous Treasure Trove ?

Absolutely stunning storytelling. If the authors have not been sued over this book and it is true, then the USA has a president elected with the help of a foreign power and somebody is guilty of treason.

Jaw-droppingly good listen. Amazing depth of reporting. Broken down and told ln a simple yet chilling story of political revenge, corruption, deception and the poisoning of American electoral institutions.

A must read for people with even a passing interest in US politics.

Democracy as fools?

Great read, informative, shocking and thought provoking. Well written, well narrated and compulsive. I recommend this book highly.

The truth and nothing but the truth!

What made the experience of listening to Russian Roulette the most enjoyable?

What a riveting read-couldn’t put it down. Actually stories contained within this book have recently surfaced and are in the news right now. It makes you see that there is so much evidence that the 2016 elections were compromised. It was Putins way of getting back at Hillary Clinton for what he termed as her interference in the Russian 2012 elections,& he vowed to make her pay. All she did was point out there were corruption & inconsistentcies in his election campaign, and that was it,he wanted revenge!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Not Applicable

Have you listened to any of Peter Ganim’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The evidence of Trump’s Russian interaction and his inconsistencies about his contact with the Russians

Any additional comments?

Compulsive reading for anyone interested in politics and the 2016 election. Highly recommend it

Compelling

Brings together many strands in a coherent way. Well written and easy to follow. Also, of course, a chilling account of the 2016 campaign. Everyone should read/hear it. The reader ok, odd tendency to act out some passages in inappropriate voices, and appalling pronunciation of non-English surnames.

A must read for anyone who cares about democracy

Incredible research and superbly narrated. It’s a ridiculous yarn about the dirty world of modern American politics.

Worth the relisten

Obviously subsequent events have overlapped but overall you final it and just go 'hot damn'. We are under attack, subtly, but under attack.
