" تصلني من روسيا رسائل تعبرعن الشفقة علي والرثاء لحالي ، انهم يخافون علي أن أفنى مدفونا في هذا الركن النائي من الأرض يقولون عني أنه سوف يختبل ويبتله ويفقد الاهتمام بكل شيء "

Charming, but with a caveat...
The great charm of this first full-fledged novel of Tolstoy (1863) of course is the setting: like some of his short stories the panoramic view of the mountainous Caucasus area is breathtaking, and Tolstoy really lets it come into its own. In essence this is a love story
