Gogol's great comic masterpiece paints an hilariously satirical picture of provincial life in 19th century Russia. Its publication in 1847 not only provided inspiration for succeeding generations of Russian writers, but fanned the already flickering flames of social discontent which were eventually to flare up and consume Russia in the revolution of 1917.

    " A brillant satire! at last a Russian with a sense of humor, very clever and entertaing "

    " Sorry Chichikov. I just couldn't get through this book. It was a very interesting idea, and written rather nicely apart from Gogols perhaps too often interjections. I also enjoyed the satirical side of the novel and larger that life characters such as Nabokov. However, I never felt an urge to read on. To find out what happens next. It was just a struggle from chapter to chapter, until I gave up. Perhaps I'll come back and give it another go one day... "

    " Amazing writing, have to read it again a few times to really absorb it...Russian books, you know. Gogol burned the second half :( "
