I love travel books well written and this would be one of those. Fat land takes you with her through these exotic and difficult to travel countries. Along the way, she points out the minutia only a good tourist would note and puts it all into the context of these lands in flux. I would never travel serve so rough or research so thoroughly. Thanks for doing all the hard parts so I could travel these places too ( )

This lively, well presented and fascinating travel book takes the reader to five central Asian countries, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. Erika Fatland travels like a journalist, keen to get word of mouth stories and observes like an anthropologist, which she studied in Norway. She is open and interested in everything from silk production to bride stealing. She travels solo, looking for the Soviet Union legacy in these countries and how they have moved on since independence. She captures the places, the beauty, the ugly and drab and the strange. Some cities only have a tall flagpole going for them and in the mountains she travels through stunning scenery. An exceptional read.. ( )

Fantastic travel writing. I loved arm-chair traveling with Erika Fatland across Central Asia, and I’ve added several new spots to my travel bucket list. I learned so much (especially this—the Aral Sea has disappeared!) and was constantly setting the book down to Google pictures of the places she was describing. Highly recommend following the author on Instagram to see more pictures from her travels. ( )

Sovietistan by Erika Fatland: A Journey Through Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan (2019)
This is a combination travel and history book about these five specific countries in central Asia. The author is a brave Nordic woman who travelled to the area in two separate trips around 2013 and 14. It was a good introduction for me as reader who before reading the book, had very little knowledge about the area. It’s a very readable book, if not all inclusive. These countries all have threads that tie them together as formerly being part of the USSR, which has an effect on how they are governed today while each country is in the process of forging their own new identity now as independent nations. Ecological, social, political, and economic insight is also explored with its consequences, for good or for bad, on the population. There is rich history here, there are also historical lessons to be learned. Many topics are covered, the silk road, nomads of the steppes, the drying up of the Aral Sea, people persevering in the face of steep odds, use/misuse of the environment, exploration of the outcomes of government forced programs on the population, and the list goes on. I found it an enlightening read. ( )

2014 (but with later footnotes added) look at the five Central Asian republics, by a Norwegian author.
In short, accessible chapters, she meets the locals, visits interesting places...and looks at the politics, the dictators (only Kyrgyzstan can be considered free) and the history. A part of the world that fascinates me; this is a recommended introduction to the region. ( )

Het nieuwe boek Sovjetistan bevat reportages van bezoeken die Erika Fatland bracht aan de een vijftal landen in Centraal-Azië die zelfstandig zijn geworden na het uiteenvallen van de Sovjet-Unie. Turkmenistan, Kazachstan, Tadzjikistan, Kirgistand (Kirgizië) en Oezbekistan zijn dus jonge landen waaraan vrij weinig aandacht wordt besteed in de westerse media. Opvallend is dat in de meeste landen dictators aan de macht zijn gekomen die vaak al in Sovjettijd carrière maakten…lees verder >

The art of recreating writers' homes is a Russian speciality. There are hundreds of such ghost homes throughout the empire, with furniture appropriate to the time, sometimes the writer's own. These hallowed shrines are generally guarded by stern women who rush to turn off the lights as soon as the literary pilgrims have left the room. The guide who showed me around the museum in Semipalatinsk was a large lady. She was so unfit that she had to stop and catch her breath between the displays, but she knew the writer's life and work inside out, minute by minute, sentence by sentence. She followed me, with contempt in her eyes, feeding me with details about Dostoyevsky's time in the town.
