This is a googly or, if you are an American, a curve ball of a topic suggested by Shackman for this week’s 2 on 1 Blog Post.
I am not Buffy and do not have big bads in my life except for those that I keep reading about in our news papers or WhatsApp messages. I had to think hard and long to come up with an answer and after that too, I am not fully satisfied that it is the correct answer to this question.
I would choose Vladimir Putin for two reasons. You can read all about the first reason here and the second, here.
I have given enough reading material in the two links to support my conclusion and I have nothing more to add.
Please do go over to Shackman’s blog to see what he has to say about the question that he has raised. I will be very surprised if he and I agree on the answer.
This is a book that should not only be read by you, but one that should be recommended by you to all your contacts so that more and more people will come to know about the Powerful Russians and the way they bamboozle even foreigners leave alone their own citizens.
My brother Barath suggested that I read this book and he has not made a better recommendation than this ever in his long life.
This book had me riveted to it from the first page till I finished reading it. It is an amazing true story with all real people featured in it and instead of a non fiction book, reads like a mystery thriller. But it also left me emotionally quite involved in the writer’s agony and angst as well as sad for the lawyer who gets killed by the Russian system.
I do not want to share the contents of the book here and hope that you will read the book to gain a first hand knowledge yourself.
I request you to read these two reviews here from a British newspaper and here from an American one to add further persuasion if it is needed.
