The Nose is the second best known story of Gogol, after The Overcoat. A military major discovers his nose is missing and works to recover it. He finds the nose but it pretends to have a life of its own, as a fellow human. It in fact has a higher rank than the Major himself. The Major is perplexed, goes back to his apartment, and has the nose returned to him. With great joy he recovers his nose, only to find it won't reattach to his face. After much going on, he finds the nose reattached to his face. The fun of the story are the goings on, which have made this a favorite of all readers of Russian literature.

    " Witty and amusing, also skillfully translated to Romanian (as I read a different edition). Also, probably the shortest book on the 1001 BYMRBYD list(s), which is always a big plus. Quite enjoyable and incredibly easy to go through. Both beginning and end were abrupt, and everything about it was unexpected. "

    " Quite odd, but enjoyable. "

    " Very funny and full of irony. "

    " This is the story of a man who wakes up one day to find his nose missing. It's a short story and I can't same much about it without giving things away, but this is certainly one of the weirdest damn stories I've ever read. There were more than a few times when I said "what the hell?" while reading it. "
