    A remarkable but grim read course anything dealing with the Eastern Front and Stalingrad makes for some heavy reading but in the grimness Grossman does comes up with some light hearted moments fo the soldiers and the civilians Vasily Grossman writes some powerful prose from the land nights the factories tracers lighting up the night sky politics romance and of the battle itself he weaves a great story with historical characters

Summary За правое дело

За правое дело

Cuando escribe Grossman es un hombre destruido por la guerra su hijo ha muerto en el frente y su madre ha sido asesinada en el gueto Los personajes principales componen un mosaico de lo ue era la sociedad soviética del momento El fanático Abarchuk el comisario Krím. As noted by the translator in the afterword Grossman envisioned Stalingrad and Life and Fate as one work so a proper evaluation cannot be given until both books have been read That being said there s no denying that Stalingrad in and of itself is a major accomplishment It starts off with Vavilov s beautiful but sad departure from his family as he trudges off to war and then Grossman proceeds to give us scene after scene of vivid imagery Krymov s river crossing with Semyonov stands out as does the fighting at the Railway StationThis is far from a perfect work however Many reviewers have noted the distracting propaganda for the Soviet regime and I couldn t help but notice it as well Stalingrad was initially published while Stalin was still around and was thus heavily edited so it is difficult to determine how much of this propaganda Grossman actually wanted in his novel The translator does a wonderful job of discussing the different versions of Stalingrad and the role those editors played in constructing the novel as it is today It blew my mind that Tolya s chapter was added almost as a throw in during the editing process it s an amazing chapterAs a standalone work I would argue that the cast of characters in Stalingrad is far too large Without the list of characters at the back of the book I would have been hard pressed to keep track of who is who Grossman devotes over 600 pages to their introduction and backstories before we even really dive in to the battle of Stalingrad Despite the page count dedicated to building these characters the book would have been better served with a smaller cast that would allow the reader to be emotionally invested in their story When soldier XYZ was killed in a beautifully rendered scene I had to pause and flip to the character list to remind myself why I should be so distraught at his death Many of Grossman s characters simply disappear without resolution almost as if the many pages we spent with them were nothing than a long winded tangent to the main story I am sure many of these characters will resurface in Life and Fate but it is a little frustrating to have so many memorable characters disappear like an afterthought Having said all of that I am sure Life and Fate will bring all these characters back into the fold throw my complaints back in my face and make this review look stupid I look forward to looking stupidA high four stars Excellent but not the masterpiece it is claimed to be At least not until I read Life and Fate anyway Out of Bounds (Boundaries, un hombre destruido por la guerra su hijo ha muerto en el frente y su madre ha sido asesinada en el gueto Los personajes principales componen Grass, Sky, Song un mosaico de lo Otter Chaos!

Ov el viejo marxista Mostovskói el científico Shtrum y Aleksandra Sháposhnikova cuya vitalidad triunfará sobre el mal y la muerte se interrogan acerca de la viabilidad del comunismo y el porué del fascismo mientras luchan por sobrevivir a los horrores de la guerr. Despite the huge variation in depth this is of the most fascinating portrayals of character that I ve ever read The novel represents the collective over the individual though in a reflection of the Communist Russia it evokes some individuals are important than others It s a tumble of thoughts and feelings and actions sometimes just a flash of a life sometimes It s confusing and messy and real but also alienating Even before the hardships of the siege it felt like too much I wanted to escape the reel of voices their unceasing breadth somehow claustrophobic It s powerful precisely because of this too real to be anything but difficultIt s like nothing I ve read before I m not sure I want to read anything like it again but its value as a novel and as a portrait of the human condition is clearARC via Netgalley Einsteins Generation unceasing breadth somehow claustrophobic It s powerful precisely because of this too real to be anything but difficultIt s like nothing I ve read before I m not sure I want to read anything like it again but its value as a novel and as a portrait of the human condition is clearARC via Netgalley
