Translated by Louise Maude.
Do you have qualms with organized religion? Do you have a weak spot for the underdog? Do you consider yourself to be a intellectual, cynic or a wit? Do ejaculations of emotion, comradery or compassion entertain you? Do stark complicated character intrigue you? Then you will love Resurrection. Tolstoy is a master of religious satire and human observation. We weaves a tale full of emotion, epiphanies and rejuvenation. He makes the impossible - possible and the improbable - realistic. I love this book I laughed, gasped, snarled and wept (silently of course) through the whole novel. To me it is neither a romance or a novel of adventure, though these things occur; rather, it is a journey of thought (albeit incomplete).--Submitted by M W Nicole
