Words Will Break Cement: The Passion of Pussy Riot by Masha Gessen (2014)

I'm sure that I wasn't supposed to feel this way, but I didn't like the three members of Pussy Riot at all.  They seem like grandstanding brats. I didn't exactly sympathize with the Putin government - it just seemed like everyone was an anti-hero.   I didn't finish this book though.  Maybe they come out better at the end.  But I became so annoyed with them I stopped reading and went on to something else.  Masha Gessen is far more interesting being interviewed than her writing.
