Publisher's Summary

Oblomov is the best known novel by Russian writer Ivan Goncharov, first published in 1859. Oblomov is also the central character of the novel, often seen as the ultimate incarnation of the superfluous man, a symbolic character in 19th-century Russian literature. Oblomov was compared to Shakespeare's Hamlet as answering "No!" to the question "To be or not to be?" Oblomov is a young, generous nobleman who seems incapable of making important decisions or undertaking any significant actions. Throughout the novel he rarely leaves his room or bed and famously fails to leave his bed well into the novel. The book was considered a satire of Russian nobility whose social and economic function was increasingly in question in mid-19th century Russia.

    Story
    "This is NOT Vyacheslav Gerasimov!"
    What disappointed you about Oblomov?

    The narration is not by Vyacheslav Gerasimov, perhaps the best narrator of classic books, but some woman who speaks in monotone and just destroys the whole thing. This is deceptive.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Oblomov?

    The story is obviously good, but the woman does the opposive of making it come to life.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Vyacheslav Gerasimov’s performances?

    HIS performances are the very best.
