Fathers and Sons | [Ivan Turgenev]

Fathers and Sons

When Arkady Petrovich comes home from college, his father finds his eager, naive son changed almost beyond recognition, for the impressionable Arkady has fallen under the powerful influence of the friend he has brought with him. A self-proclaimed nihilist, the ardent young Bazarov shocks Arkady's father by criticising the landowning way of life and by his outspoken determination to sweep away the traditional values of contemporary Russian society.

    "The greatest novel I'll ever read"
    Any additional comments?

    I'm not even going to attempt to write a review, it would be impossible for me to put into any words how personal this book is for me, how much it means to me, how stunningly beautiful, sad, insightful, and perfect this novel is.

    I'm not sure I ever need to read another novel again.

    Fathers and Sons is perfect. I'm in love with it.

    I read way too much. When I'm not reading, I'm listening to audiobooks. Seriously it's like all I do. I need help. Somebody help me.

    "I enjoyed this more than I thought I would"

    Everybody sleeping on my man Turgenev. This novel to me is right up there with the other 19th century Russian classics, I'm talking Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Chekhov, Gogol all that. I might even say it's more readable than some of the other ones, though that could be because I listened to it rather than read it.

    But yeah, I would say this is one of them old school jump offs that still goes in to this day. I mean, I don't know about everybody else but to me, I think it's still worth reading. Matter fact I read this while reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower at the same time and I actually enjoyed this one more, which surprised even me, cuz that book came highly recommended. But I would recommend anyone give Turgenev a shot. Especially if you like them classic novels. I know I'll definitely be reading more of his books.
