    Story
    "Unusual and enjoyable"

    Good job (as usual) by Simon Vance. These stories are more explicitly religious than some of Tolstoy's work. The collection includes the title story, along with "God Sees the Truth but Waits," "Prisoner in the Caucasus," "What Men Live By," "Where Love Is, God Is," and "Alyosha the Pot." I particularly enjoyed "What Men Live By," which has a fairy-tale quality matched by both the writing and Vance's narration. "Father Sergius" and "Prisoner in the Caucasus" are more realistic, hard-bitten tales. An unusual and enjoyable collection. Unfortunately the chapter breaks are (apparently) based on the original CD lengths rather than the individual stories, so it's hard to navigate unless you're listening straight through.
