Fox hardly sees Inessa in Russia where he is seduced by the wild atmosphere; fantastically realised with excellent research, witty observations This is, what I believe, is a truly fine novel. Fox hardly sees Inessa in Russia where he is seduced by the wild atmosphere; fantastically realised with excellent research, witty observations and quite literary writing on occasion.
With a backdrop of endless menace, rape, murder, decadence, mob rule and nasty politics, this is a novel which thrills and shocks. Everything is played out in that unnerving space where tragedy meets comedy.
It is an unusual achievement, a treat for anyone who likes their history horrible, true to haphazard life and yet not bereft of heroics. Feb 08, Simon rated it really liked it. Comrade Fox is a fun novel, a tour of revolutionary Russia through the eyes of young Archibald Fox, a fictional British dilettante. The knowledge of and feel for the history is perhaps the most impressive aspect of the book, with the sights, sounds and even smells of the anarchy of St Petersburg vividly described, and the sheer unlikeliness of Lenin's eventual triumph accurately captured.

Fox himself is an aspiring Flashman, a drinker and a womaniser but - endearingly - he never quite lives down to his own caddish self-image.https://detahosile.tk

This is a great account of the revolution first hand this first hand account of the Russian revolution is just proof that fact is stranger than fiction.
Momentous events happen seemingly by chance but all the right conditions must exist for it to happen and the right person must be at the right place also.

You people should just read this book yourselves and write your own review on this novel, Shelley MA. Oct 11, Linda rated it really liked it. Read the book. This author has done an excellent job of showing that Russia and its citizens are multifaceted and defy containment or explanation.
The book is both witty and serious. Those subjects are as huge as Russia herself. I love reading about Russian history because I want inside the psyche of the Russian people. Alas, Russia remains reclusive and closed to me, but in this book the door was opened Read the book. Alas, Russia remains reclusive and closed to me, but in this book the door was opened a little wider than ever before. I caught a glimpse of Russia through the eyes of Archie Fox, a friend to Lenin and a most lovable and degenerate man if ever there was one.
Thank you, Mr. Hennessey, for a good read.

Oct 30, Betty Read rated it liked it. Much redundancy in the journals the main characher Archie Fos is writing. Some parts boring and some quite interesting. Lover of historical fiction, I found Lenin becoming the leader of communism in Russia as the character portrayed in Archie's journal quite surprising. There is an excellent Appendix to the book that I found quite informative.
