It is believed that it is "Crime and punishment" by Dostoevsky, but I couldn't even finish it in school. "War and peace" and "The Master and Margarita" are even more boring.

I can't understand how Bulgakov could write such mystic shit after Dog's heart. This one is truly masterpiece. It's a pity that you couldn't understand it because you need to know historical context of beginning of the 20th century. Same reason I've had only a few slight smiles while reading "The aventures of brave soldier Shweik".

Don Quijote.

It's also the best book ever written so we won.

Reading "War and Peace" right now, 100 pages in and Napolean was mentioned only four times. I thought the book was about the napoleonic wars but until now it only talked about the russian nobility.

Who have read "Demons" by Dostoyevsky? how are Your impressions?
>>
>>54872118
You mean "Biesy"? For me it was much more interesting than "Crime and Punishment"
>>
>>54872319
Yes. Sounds like "Biesy". But in english wiki it "Demons" - not correct at general. in russian language "demons" are higher than "biesy" in hierarchy of hell. smth like that.

>Did You understand the background of the book story as a "prophecy" of 1917 revolution in Russia?
Yes, but I was just after reading "Istoki i smysl' russkogo kommunizma" by Bierdiayev, also what you wrote is the most common interpretation among Polish specialists in Eastern Slavic literature so it's obvious that averyone understands it this way.

Similar case - "Zapiski iz miertvogo doma" - one of our writers - Herling-Grudziński - wrote his book about gulag and one of its characters commits suicide after reading "Zapiski" so in Polish interpretations "Zapiski" are like some kind of prophecy about gulag.
>>
>>54872459
We have the same word in Polish - bies, but it's literally "devil", just more archaic, that's why "demons" sounds wrong, just as you wrote - bies is a kind of minor wicked devil, while demon is more malicious.

I see You have good background at all)) By the way if there is some good translate to english(or other languages) of book-memoir "Special operation.Lubyanka and Kreml. 1930-1950 years" by Pavel Sudoplatov - I recommend to read it. Most of mentioned books here are only fixtion. But that book is how life was.

Thanks, I will check it, I know Sudoplatov, but not as a writer so it will be interesting.
