I enjoyed this read, but it is not a true history. It is a more or less chronological compilation of Dobrynin's recollections from his time as Soviet Ambassador. Because there is no real narrative linkage to this book, I found that it was easy to pick up and put down again. I dnf'd it since I had to return it to the library, but I will ultimately probably buy a copy of this book and finish it that way where I can leave it on my shelf for a year and pick it up 20-50 pages at a time.
