Narrator Arthur Morey does well in his performance of this history of Siberian exile under the tsars. Spanning the reigns of tsars from Ivan the Terrible to Nicholas II, this audiobook is filled with interesting details from numerous sources. Listeners hear that the region shaped, and was shaped, by the different types of prisoners who were sent there--not only political prisoners, but also criminals and prisoners of war went to this vast region. Morey is clear in diction, easygoing-- almost conversational--in pace, and somewhat neutral in tone. Although his American accent may surprise listeners conditioned to hear only narrators with English accents read works of Russian history, his performance is easy to follow and doesn't distract from this interesting work.
