This was one of my favourite challenges this year. It pushed me to focus on all things Russian and helped me finish that epic Russian novel, War and Peace. It also introduced me to my first Dostoyevsky and my first Turgenev. Dostoyevsky is going to take more getting to know, but Turgenev was a delight ……. very different from what I expected of a usual Russian novel.
I had aimed at finishing 1 – 3 books but I ended up reading 5, so I’m pleased with myself. Here are the books I read:
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
Eugene Onegin by Alexander Pushkin
Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak
The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Fathers and Sons by Ivan Turgenev
Thanks to O at Behold the Stars for hosting this challenge! I am now firmly entrench in a love of Russian Literature!
