Leo Tolstoy stands tall among the great Russian novelists of the 19th century. Tolstoy based Resurrection, the last of his novels, on a true story of a philanderer whose misuse of a beautiful young orphan girl leads to her ruin. Fate brings the two together many years later, and the meeting awakens the man's moral conscience. Anger, intimacy, forgiveness, and grace result.

While the situation of Tolstoy's plot is alien to most people, his nuanced treatment of mortal life is familiar to all. Later in his life Tolstoy confessed that he earlier had seduced two young girls for his pleasure. Perhaps his own deeds and their horrible consequences motivated him to write this novel with special passion. It is a particularly moving tale.

Tolstoy's Resurrection is marvelous in the fullest sense of the word - a story so improbable that it must be a miraculous achievement. Download and start listening now!

    " Read this over 40 years ago, Its as relevant now as it was to me then.. "

    " Good political commentaries entwine their messages seamlessly with their plots. This is not one of them. Tolstoy's four hundred page sermon has some lovely prose, but he hides it well. "

    " This book is amazing. Everyone should read it. Tolstoi left us a message, a message of peace and harmony between all humans. He show us how easy is to make it, and how hard. "

    " This is an incredible depiction of life in late 19th century Russia, from all its angles. Tolstoy's ideologies of religion and society are rather interesting, and are brought out in this novel magnificently. I would recommend this novel to anyone who's ever questioned religion, society, law - government! Humanity... this novel raises outstanding inquiry in these topics, thus provoking thought and even a better, sort of anarchistic, outlook towards life...if you don't mind it, that is. I definitely don't. This book is indeed a work of life, as well as art! "
