    " I love love love this book. I found the story almost painfully beautiful, and even after years I'm at loss for words to describe all the wonderful feelings I experienced while reading this. The protagonist is unique and it was truly a delight to get to know him. I'm not sure how it sounds in English - there few languages that can compare with Russian when it comes to adjectives - but I have a feeling that translated Oblomov is as lovely as it is in Russian. It's a classic that everyone interested in Russian literature should give a try. I can't recommend it enough. "

    " Oblomov is a book about a man who does nothing; who gives in to that ever present temptation to just laze about all day. And yet, what an interesting time for me to read it. I read it in a short little break I have between one busy week and another. I even tried to hurry through the novel as if to start the next busy week early. And yet, I could easily have read this a year and a few months ago, during a lazy summer. To think that its caution again this laze, the Oblomovian blight, fell upon deaf ears where if the timing were a little different, it would have resonated within me. In the end, funny how sometimes context makes the book. "

    " The first 170 pages of this hardcover were somewhat slow and I became frustrated with the book and the main character's never ending "oblomovism" -- even Goncharov was guilty as it took him more than ten years to write this book -- but I kept reading. Suddenly, I couldn't believe this was actually a Russian novel as it rapidly evolved into a real page turner and I was totally engrossed. I enjoyed it and am giving it 4 stars but could have given 5 even with the slow start. "

    " Not much happens in this book, but it does contain some fantastic characters. It can be pretty frustrating at times however since it goes in circles. "
