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.

Amazing!

В 10-й раз читаю/слушаю, и каждый раз что-то новое открываю, новый смысл, новую, прежде упущенную мысль. Прочитав роман первый раз в школе по литературе, и нынче за сорок, совершенно иное восприятие, но по прежнему любимый и великолепный роман.

Great classic

Master and Margarita is one of my most favorite books of all times. I read it in Russian, English, now listened to this version in Russian, and I am sure will keep re reading again :) I love Bulgakov in general, but this is the favorite of mine, as it is full of satire and a subtle happy ending, despite the devastating times, during which and about which this book was written. Bulgakov was amazingly talented, and this is a true Russian classic.
