    This is a very good chronicle about my own family, as it happens, but a great read for anyone interested in the Armenians, the Genocide and how our people came to the new world and managed as a diaspora. Hrant's Story is exactly what it says it is. Hrant Russian, in his later years, dictated his story onto audio tape, in Armenian. His daughter, my cousin, Sandra Russian Aghababian, then translated Hrant's story into English. A total of 124 pages, the book is a quick read. Don't expect a work of poetic, literary art; this is just a dictated true story in the man's own words, from his own memory, very simply told. In places, the story is a bit confusing and disjointed, as stories usually are when told in real life, but you'll get the drift. Often, the reader is left wanting a little more detail... However, it's exactly this matter-of-fact way that Hrant tells his honest story of the gruesome barbarity of the Turks, beginning with his carefree days as a boy, then, his innocence... More > shattered, to terror, and escape, again and again, and of death, and survival, of his family and friends, and of day to day challenges on his way to America, which is what makes this book a true and invaluable treasure. Easy reading for any level. Glossary of terms and B&W and color photos in the back of the book. I would give the book a rating of "PG" (parental guidance suggested), suitable for mid-teens and up. This book is modestly-priced and would make an excellent gift for anyone interested in Armenian Genocide history.< Less
