As suddenly as that blast of wind, had love pounced down upon him. And then this senseless duel! He began to be tormented by mournful forebodings. And even suppose they didn't kill him…. What could come of his love for this girl, another man's betrothed? Even supposing this 'other man' was no danger, that Gemma herself would care for him, or even cared for him already … What would come of it? How ask what! Such a lovely creature!…

¡Ese final! Ese final consigue que esta novela no sea simplemente una lectura deliciosamente agradable y muy bien escrita.
Los rusos, amigo, no hay ni uno optimista. Como a mi me gusta

Another entertaining book by Mr Turgenev.
The author seems more optimistic than his peers:
even though in Torrents: love and betrayal compete
disastrously, he still manages at the end to resolve
his hero and his heroine with some happiness.
An artful story teller. Very recommendable.
