    " being introduced to this story of paranoia is one of the main reasons im thankful for college "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Piet Michael | 12/21/2013

    " Another amazing Russian novel. This time the main character of the story is a paranoide school teacher who enjoys himself torturing his environment, literally a few students. Sologub makes the evil and madness shake hands in "The Petty Demon". "

    " This book will convince every idealist that the glass is not only half empty, but that you have to share it with people you don't like. Ten of them. The worst of human nature. "

    " Russian literature at its best "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 11/21/2013

    " Although quite funny at times, this author appears to be the "shock-jock" in Russia during the early 20th century. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonya | 10/10/2013

    " The book written by a real master. 'twas a great pleasure to read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tony | 4/4/2013

    " More of my not-so-sectret love affair with Russian lit. One of several gems I'd never have known about was it not for 'Russian Literature in English 142' in my freshman year of college, taught by Timothy Westphalen. Jolly good show, Tim. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5  | 1/8/2013

    " Maledetti bastardi perversi crudeli sudici paranoici dementi alcolizzati schizofrenici. Malefico. Avrei voluto che non finisse mai. Ma dall'ottocento e rotti al novecento e rotti che gli davano da mangiare a 'sti scrittori russi? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane Costanza | 1/3/2013

    " One of the best books I've ever read. Too good to explain - just read it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 12/19/2012

    " Quite a good portrait of a man going mad. A few too many of those typical Russian scenes where people sit around for pages talking nonsense, getting into moods and suddenly leaping up to dance for no reason (except the vodka) though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Geoff Ross | 11/11/2012

    " Very funny and scintillating. . . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 M.moore | 9/4/2012

    " This book deserves more attention by the avid anglophone readers of Russian literature--it stands up much better in post-modernity than Dostoyevsky and immeasurably better than Tolstoi. "

    " it was alright reading but there was nothing really compelling about this book. "
