    " another downer russian story (big surprise). the only real complaint i have is the beginning is pretty retarded. aside from that its real solid. the short length (novella) can be both a strength and weakness "

    " I'm not crazy over the translation. "

    " A very lovely book. I don't know how seriously I took it, the scenes were strangely described and bordered on the absurd; however, though I foresaw the final tragedy of who she chooses over the narrator I sympathized with his shock and sadness. It was sweet simplicity at its finest. "

    " She was much loved by all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Myles Osborne | 1/29/2014

    " (4.3/5.0) Killer ending. Why are the Russians so good at closing their stories? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Irina Garaeva | 1/27/2014

    " A ruthless but more or less plausible story about one of the worst sin in our life - passion - that can ruin not life (this is too loud I would say) but pure high feeling and leave you with your shame and low self-estimation. Really sad ... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea Young | 1/26/2014

    " It was like plain vanilla ice cream, nice, but nothing special. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Drayton | 1/19/2014

    " I really enjoyed this, especially after reading it a second time. Turgenev is really a superb writer and his prose if so un-prosaic and beautiful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 12/31/2013

    " 19th century novella recounting adolescent love, with much more poignancy than I had expected. Turgenev does so much in so few pages; I shall definitely read more of him. "

    " Good. Short. Fast read. Russians! "

    " "...bahwa apa-apa yang tidak ada, dan memang lebih baik daripada apa yang ada, tapi juga mendekati kebanaran... Sebab tanpa cinta orang tak akan hidup! Sungguh aku ingin, tapi aku tak dapat!" "

    " I thought it's very short story. His 1st love was too peaceful. Just admiring at girl one he gave heart and always make what she wanted. Love the way he express his self to girl. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Neal Kerrigan | 2/12/2013

    " It seems like it was probably a phenomenal book back in the day but Russian and Eastern European Literature has come so far since Turgenev "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samir Rawas Sarayji | 1/21/2013

    " This was unexpectedly boring. The narrative distance didn't work for me resulting in a protagonist that I couldn't sympathize with. I felt like throttling Turgenev at one point and shouting 'show, don't tell!' but I suppose it's rude to disturb the dead... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 candice | 10/28/2012

    " A coming of age story told in flashback and in first person, which ended up being the problem for me. I thought the narrator Vladimir melodramatic and an idiot (but who isn't at 16), the narration bordering on parody. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Siobhan | 8/28/2012

    " Read it and learn how to wrap men around your littlest finger. "

About the Author
Author Ivan Turgenev

Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev (1818–1883) was the first Russian writer to gain a wide reputation in Europe. He witnessed the February Revolution in Paris (1848), and his subsequent connection with reform groups in Russia, along with his sympathetic 1852 eulogy of Nikolai Gogol (who satirized the corrupt bureaucracy of the Russian empire), led to his arrest and one-month imprisonment in St. Petersburg. In 1879 the honorary degree of doctor of civil law was conferred upon him by the University of Oxford.
