Publisher's Summary

From award-winning author Eugene Vodolazkin comes this poignant story of memory, love, and loss spanning 20th-century Russia.

A man wakes up in a hospital bed, with no idea who he is or how he came to be there. The only information the doctor shares with his patient is his name: Innokenty Petrovich Platonov. As memories slowly resurface, Innokenty begins to build a vivid picture of his former life as a young man in Russia in the early 20th century, living through the turbulence of the Russian Revolution and its aftermath. But soon, only one question remains: How can he remember the start of the 20th century, when the pills by his bedside were made in 1999?

Reminiscent of the great works of 20th-century Russian literature, with nods to Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment and Bulgakov's The White Guard, The Aviator cements Vodolazkin's position as the rising star of Russia's literary scene.

A MASTERPIECE

A view of Russian hisory told in a fantastical, compelling story. A work of genius.

ambiguous.

I was hoping for more. the ending was unsatisfying. not sure if it was worth the listen. it's sort of like flowers for algeron without completion or purpose.

enjoyed the story however...<br />

The female voice didn't fit at all. it was poorly read and didn't fit to the excellent narration of the protagonist
