Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caro | 6/19/2011

    " I love the humanity of 19th-century novels. Turgenev's fathers and sons fuss and misunderstand each other, philosophies are exchanged, and we end with two weddings and a tragic death. Great introduction by Alain de Botton in the OUP edition I read. Could have wished for a better translation. "

    " I read this as a senior in high school with my English Literature and Composition class. I enjoyed it and the discussions we had. "

    " I listened to this book on tape, which I liked because I wouldn't have been able to keep track of the Russian names otherwise. I'm still trying to understand all the ideas in this novel, but I really liked it for whatever reason. The characters were really interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter Simpson | 5/25/2011

    " Fantastic book. Easily the best 19th century work of literature that I have read. It's about an intense conflict of ideas...the older generation's traditionalist/aristocratic/bourgeois tendencies against the younger generation's nihilist/liberalist yearnings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill | 5/17/2011

    " enjoying the superfluous man!
    The ending made me cry.

    This book explores the unrequited love between parents and the children, for me a wow moment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rissi | 5/11/2011

    " Read this in high school and liked it. My first taste of nihilism and it fascinated me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mircea | 4/15/2011

    " Russians knew their way around writing. And seing the opposition between the traditional views on life of the old generation and the subversive new views of the new generation it's always stimulating. "

    " Brilliant book. Typical Russian literature setting, but far more readable than say Dostojevski. Great Story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew | 4/10/2011

    " The clash between generations, as told through the lens of Russian Nihilism during the 19th century. "

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.
