The Death of Ivan Ilych is the classic romantic monster story re-told in a truly human and realistic way. The monster in this short novel should scare the reader more than any other. An unthoughtful man forced to deal with his death should get the reader to think of the topic themselves--if you do this you will be drawn in and love the self analysis it provides.--Submitted by Anonymous
A story of a misunderstood man, dutiful to his career and family, who lives pleasantly until a fatal disease strikes him ill. He is then confided in his bed feeling more pain the more deep he goes in thinking of his life, his artificial life of shallowness while the more he get's closer to "death" or God the more pain escapes him and his eyes are awakened by the discovery of the true life, the spiritual life.--Submitted by Brendan
