It does not happen often that other nationality writers speak about Riga in their books. In this case, book content is sometimes very harsh, but is illustrate a certain dose of reality. Real latvian cultural soup. It is certainly different from the usual books in a shelf, at least for me. Unconventional peculiar literature, which can not be read in one sitting from cover to cover. Just like a thriller, this book requires age limit. Exquisite use of language conjures up in a mind such vivid scenes that I would not recommend this book to read before going to bed. The successful combination of eclectic characters and abundance of slang expressions are quite the same as in the story often mentioned cocktail Lord Byron, which taste conformity with nature of main characters can be assessed only after reading the book. The translator has made a great job by not losing the essence of the book.
