Good lawd there must be something about these russians and the way their writings can probe the psychological process. They're deep, deep, very so.

I've not read much. The only 2 slavonic writers i'v read are
Crime and punishment - Fyodoor Dostoyevsky
War and Peace - leo tolstoy
and i was enwrapped.

"Daniel Steel" is actually Danielle Steel and she is a woman not a man.

rotflmao, gosh i can't stand when people open their mouths and ignorance pours out, King as in Stephen? Danielle Steele? if you don't know what people are talking about, respect yourself, keep quiet and move on!, and if you thought the Russian Lit you read was messed up and amature? you've only managed to insult yourself and declare to the world your inability to grasp the concept of what was written, lol, Stephen King, Like comparing Archie Comics to Shakespeare,

On the issue of Russian Lit though, i'm currently reading "The Idiot" by Dostoyevski, and have crime and punishment lined up, and have read some of Chehov's work too, deep ish o! them Russians, all psychological and ish tongue

"The Master and the Margarita" by Mikhail Bulgakov is a awesome, Devil visits Soviet Union,
Saw a great stage production of Gogol's short story "The Overcoat" recently too, love it.

omgosshhh! i am fascinated with that book! saw a really good stage production of it last year, and got the book to read- in Russian, which is why it still has "waiting to be read" status, i want to savour it! buh that book makes more sense to me every day, i want to read it when i'm "ready" for it.

Gogol is fab too, dead souls is a good one

aaand Anton Chekov, who has an uber unique way of writing!

YES SIR!

Russian literature is amazing. Pushkin, Turgenev, Tolstoy, Goncharov, Lermontov, Bulgakov, and of course, the Master of St. Petersburg himself, Fyodor Dostoevsky.



Good to see that you've started on Dostoevsky. Don't forget to read "Notes from Underground." That's the genesis of his genius right there. The Gambler is less deep (slightly shallow) but very dramatic and electrifying a read.

House of the Dead is well written and very interesting and insightful, though not as dramatic.

Also, his short stories are masterful, not only his novels. Check out "White Nights" "The Dream of A Ridiculous Man" and "A Nasty Story"

Then of course, the greatest book you will read by him, and rivaled only by Tolstoy's War and Peace, is The Brothers Karamazov. Truly an astounding piece of art right there.

I quit this book a few pages into it. didn't seem interesting to me.
but it's so short I should have just sucked it up and finished it. lol compared to his other humongous books. but the interesting aspect is that once you finish the book, you wish it shouldn't have ended because you want more!! lol

currently I have war and peace and anna karenina on my reading list for the future when I have free time.

the airhead thinking that Danielle Steel makes for better reading than Tolstoy grin

Read both 'War and Peace' and 'Anna Karennina' in my school days when i was still a romantic. God how i loved the classics cry . Have done little of that kind of reading for years now, but after seeing 'The Reader' i'm going to have to read Anton Chekhov.

Crime and punishment was unforgettable in that he somehow gets you in the murderer's head, thinking his thoughts and feeling his feelings, and you become implicated in everything that student does; if he gets caught, you get caught. Genius. Terrified that success would ruin his gift Doestoevsky would deliberately waste his earnings and, poor and desperate again, begin another book. As for the The Brothers Karamazov, there are no words. One worries that translators don't render these masterful books exactly, giving one a second-hand experience inferior to the material in its original Russian. I read English translations of D.O Fagunwa books and they didn't do justice to the fantastic poetry and beauty and brilliance of the books in the original language.
