Summary Доктор Живаго ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF » ❮BOOKS❯ ✷ Доктор Живаго ✭ Author Boris Pasternak – From the acclaimed translators of War and Peace and Anna Karenina a stunning new translation of Boris Pasternak's Nobel Prize winning masterpiecIn love with the tender and beautiful nurse LaraRichard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky have restored the rhythms tone precision and poetry of Pasternak's original bringing this classic of world literature gloriously to life for a new generation of reader. This is going to be a difficult review to write as I have developed a real love hate relationship with this book It is an epic story about a man who is supposed to be this tragic hero separated from the women he loved by the cruel times of revolution and civil war If you ask me he was just a fill in with your favourite word for describing a man with commitment and fidelity issues I guess we can interpret the whole storyline as a metaphor of that period of Russian history in which case it all makes sense but still doesn't make it „one of the greatest love stories ever told” as advertised on the coverThe first hundred pages of the book are devoted to introducing at length dozens of characters You struggle to remember their various names surnames patronymics nicknames and connection with each other only to realise later on that they are never to reappear in the novel I am not sure what the point of that was especially when subseuently important events in main characters lives are summarized in a few sentences or omitted altogetherOn top of that we have multitudes of completely improbable coincidences Let's remember that Russia is the biggest country in the world yet people keep running into each other every other page as if they all lived in a small village Even your average romance writer wouldn't probably try to pull it off thinking it is a bit too muchWe have dealt with the storyline now let's move on to the style One thing dialogue is definitely not Pasternak's forte His characters don't talk they orate The author obviously had his own agenda there so the poor characters had to randomly break into two page long speeches to say what Pasternak wanted to tell us Actually I will let one of the characters speak for me now At some point Lara said „Instead of being natural and spontaneous as we had always been we began to be idiotically pompous with each other Something showy artificial forced crept into our conversation you felt you had to be clever in a certain way about certain world important themes”Touche Lara touche Another interesting thing she said actually this book would be so much better if it was called Larissa Fyodorovna instead of Doctor Zhivago was her outlook on philosophy I am not fond of philosophical essays I think a little philosophy should be added to life and art by way of spice but to make it one's speciality seems to me as strange as feeding on nothing but pickles And Pasternak definitely loves his picklesNow that we've dealt with the bad and the ugly let me tell what was good about this book It has some of the most captivating descriptions I have come across in literature This is where Pasternak's true genius comes to the light I didn't know you can talk about snow in so many different beautiful ways and even though I know most of it was probably lost in translation what I've read was enough to pull this book out of the two stardom It maybe would've even pushed it into four stardom if I had been in a better mood

Доктор ЖивагоFrom the acclaimed translators of War and Peace and Anna Karenina a stunning new translation of Boris Pasternak's Nobel Prize winning masterpiece the first since the original Banned in the Soviet Union until Doctor Zhivago is the epic story of the life a. I sometimes stroke my copy of Doctor Zhivago gently I doubt I will find time to reread it soon but it is one of those books I like to think I will read again some day even though it is written into my heart already and has stayed there firmly ever since it first entered it decades ago Is it better than any other of the masterpieces of world literature Probably not But it is something deeply deeply personal Something that affects the human core of the reader beyond any compassion for lost love and broken hope in political change There is something heartwarming and wonderful about poetry written in the crystal clear cold of Russian winter There is something beyond the mere storytelling in Doctor Zhivago that makes me want to caress the words that make up the journey of a doctor whose life stayed individual in the dystopian reality of the Russian Revolution and beyond whose heart kept making him feel alive despite the cold of the era he lived throughI have the impression that if he didn't complicate his life so needlessly he would die of boredomComplicating life is filling it with meaning Nobody can take that away from us no matter what our circumstances areDare to live dare to be a poet Dare to be youI love this novel to bits and I also love the old movie which is so unusual for me that I can't think of any other bookfilm congruency in my life But Omar Sharif has just the reuired life complication in his eyes
