    " The story of a greedy, self-centered business man and his faithful servant and horse traveling in a difficult blizzard. The ending surprised me. "

    " So I didn't really read this whole book, but I did read the short story "Master and Man," which was not at all what I expected. Great story - one of Tolstoy's best. "

    " Tolstoy deftly renders social and psychological tensions (between master and man) and nature's impingement on the bodies and souls of these two men journeying through the Russian wilderness. Confusion and dread mount as night descends and the blizzard intensifies, but a natural order based on true nobility takes form. Sadly, unlike the morally ambiguous tales of Dostoevsky, Tolstoy's culminates with a pithy Socialist moral. This irks me simply because I think "negative capability" is an essential quality of creative genius. But get over it Nathan! this is a gripping read. "
