Book Excerpt:

"What have you got?" whispered Ikonin at this point.

I showed him.

"Oh, I know that," he said.

"Will you make an exchange, then?"

"No. Besides, it would be all the same for me if I did," he contrived to whisper just as the professor called us up to the blackboard. "I don't feel up to anything to-day."

"Then everything is lost!" I thought to myself. Instead of the brilliant result which I had anticipated I should be for ever covered with shame—more so even than Ikonin! Suddenly, under the very eyes of the professor, Ikonin turned to me, snatched my ticket out of my hands, and handed me his own. I looked at his ticket. It was Newton's Binomial!

The professor was a youngish man, with a pleasant, clever expression of face—an effect chiefly due to the prominence of the lower part of his forehead.

"What? Are you exchanging tickets, gentlemen?". . . Read More

Childhood, Boyhood and Youth was Tolstoi's first novel, it is the novel, along with Turgenev's 'Sketches' which, at least in it's first part 'Childhood', best celebrates Russian country life and the peasantry. Some of the descriptions of nature would not look out of place from Turgenev's best works,

Childhood, Boyhood, and Youth were Tolstoy's first published works; they are loosely based on his early life up to his university days, told from the perspective of a boy named Nikolenka as he makes his way through the joys and miseries of childhood and early adulthood. Some parts of the trilogy are

Let me just preface this by saying, Tolstoy can do no wrong in my eyes. This is what you may call a biased review… with that being said, I shall proceed!

Childhood was the first work of fiction written by young Leo Tolstoy. It was supposedly his one and only attempt at writing like Charles Dickens, a

one thing that drives from the pure excellence that is Tolstoy's writing is that you don't just picture everything your reading, you feel embedded within it

The Childhood, Boyhood and Youth is that of Nikolai or Kolya, the central character and narrator. Although set in Czarist Russia in the 19th century this experience of growing up feels universal. I blushed with him and hung my head with his as I read of his young priggishness: the same feelings I’ve

Prima carte a lui Lev Nikolaevici Tolstoi. A anunțat un mare prozator.

Tolstoi a fost un sever observator al păcatelor celorlalți și, nu în ultimul rînd, al păcatelor proprii. Detesta fățărnicia și înfumurarea. Avea și o latură masochistă. Povestește că se ascundea într-o magazie și se biciuia cu frî

Upečatljiv početak jednog velikog književnog opusa. Kada kažem početak, ne mislim samo na trilogiju u celini, već na prvi pasus Detinjstva – ubijena muva pada na nos i budi usnulog desetogodišnjeg junaka, koji dremljivo i razdraženo počinje da sagledava svet oko sebe. Otvoriti oči ujutru, uvek je su

Here are my reviews of:

1. Childhood - ★★★
2. Boyhood - ★★★★
3. Youth - ★★★

Selindžer je jednom napisao da ono što ga stvarno obara jeste knjiga posle koje poželiš da ti je njen pisac najbolji prijatelj, i da možeš da ga okreneš telefonom kad god ti dođe.

Prva knjiga u životu koja me je oborila u toj meri da sam poželeo sve što je Selindžer napisao, pa čak i više, da odem p

Stunningly good. Tolstoy was so successful at making this fictional childhood seem real that to this day many readers still regard it more as a work of non-fiction. It is so vivid! Tolstoy puts you there - you can smell the fresh mown grasses at the roadside and hear the first fat drops of rain fall
