Publisher's Summary

Nothing in the whole of literature compares with The Master and Margarita. One spring afternoon, the Devil, trailing fire and chaos in his wake, weaves himself out of the shadows and into Moscow. Mikhail Bulgakov's fantastical, funny, and devastating satire of Soviet life combines two distinct yet interwoven parts, one set in contemporary Moscow, the other in ancient Jerusalem, each brimming with historical, imaginary, frightful, and wonderful characters. Written during the darkest days of Stalin's reign, and finally published in 1966 and 1967, The Master and Margarita became a literary phenomenon, signaling artistic and spiritual freedom for Russians everywhere.

Please note: This audiobook is in Russian.

    "Amazing!"
    What about Vladimir Ivanovich Samoylov’s performance did you like?

    Samoylov did an outstanding job in portraying the characters! I haven't heard anything (anyone) better. it's like listening to a play on a radio!


    Any additional comments?

    Growing up in USSR i couldn't escape reading this book when at school It was a part of compulsory reading that we HAD to do. I personally think it was great idea, but WAY to early to get to the point and main idea of the book.
    Now, decades later i keep reading it all over and over again. It is by far one of my favorite books. Every time i find something new for myself!

    Highly recommend this version to all native Russians and people who can comprehend Russian language (Speech).

    "Read and listen over and over"

    It's absolutely amazing masterpiece. The words and sentences are so delightfully juicy and ironic. Bulgakov plays with the language extremely tastefully and graceful. The magic of reality and a reality of magic intertwined and not giving us even a second of rest or boredom. I was reading it on my tipy toes

    "Religion, politics, and witchcraft"

    This is a wonderful audioversion of a Russian beloved novel by a controversial writer. Bulgakov's writing style is literary, witty, and very engaging. The narration is very well done, extremely professional and easy to listen to if you speak Russian.

    "Сказка про белого бычка"

    Скучная книга. Детский сад. Автор с бредовой философией жизни и невежеством в истории. Короче с чего смеялся на то и нарвался. Не советую, пустая трата времени.

    "Entertaining"

    Word of caution: this audiobook is read entirely in Russian, it is not a translation.

    That being said, the performance is spectacular. The characters come to life.

    The story is very entertaining, but lacks parsimony. There are many instances where the obvious is bluntly and redundantly explained. Furthermore, the ending feels melodramatic and weak compared to the rest of the plot.
