    My religion thinks that good transcends God, and that God is bound by good and evil. He cannot do evil, or he would cease to be God.

    Umm, there's a word for that. It's called "historical fiction." Fiction based in a time, about a time, with real events woven in with fictional people.

    I think one of the most life changing things I've read recently was I read "Sofia Petrovna" by Lydia Chukovskaya and then right after finishing it, I read "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich" by...

    While Solzhenitsyn is fiction, considering his background in the area and how travel-log the plots are (I mean, it's called "One Day in the Life"), I think it's a pretty good reference on how it...

    I know I'm going to be drawn and quartered for this, but Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. I hated it when I read it and want it to be cut into very small pieces, and I think the fact that everyone...

    Thanks. I didn't put that one on the list. Someone else from the committee did, and I didn't bother to check them. But you are correct.

    The first I read was Eugene Onegin by Pushkin. And it got me hooked on Russian Lit. I think that Fathers and Children by Turgenev is a good start too. But if you start with Eugene Onegin, you have...

    I read the Pevear and Volohkonsky version and it was very accessible, and my sister-in-law who's Russian says it's the most faithful to the original Russian.

    If you read it carefully, you actually don't know that she does.

    Thanks for your help. And if it's any consolation, I speak French as well, so I'll look over the translations and see if we can work together to help the poetry restoration.

    Tale of Two Cities is one of my favorites written by any author period. So, I'd have to go with Tale of Two Cities, but I love most all Dickens. I think Great Expectations was the only one I don't...
