Product Description

Review

Klimowski and Schebal s book stands on its own, but is also a wonderful introduction to Bulgakov s masterpiece. --The Times

About the Author

Mikhail Bulgakov (1891 - 1940) was born and educated in Kiev where he graduated as a doctor in 1916. He rapidly abandoned medicine to write some of the greatest Russian literature of this century. After a lifetime at odds with the stultifying Soviet regime, he died impoverished and blind in 1940, shortly after completing his masterpiece, The Master and Margarita. None of his major fiction was published during his lifetime.

I bought this graphic novel as a gift for someone very difficult to buy for. I was very impressed with the quality, as I was a little anxious buying a book second hand. However, it looks like new and I'm glad I took a risk: after all, I paid just over £5 instead of the £9 to buy it new.

Surprised to get a request to review. The copy I received was returned. Certain pages were unreadable due to poor printing and therefore unfit for purpose. Not the fault of distributors, Fault lies in the manufacture which is not revealed unless opened and the pages turned.

Too Simple - Spoilers within 2 April 2012
By Vikki P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I heard there was a graphic novel adaptation for this amazing novel, I couldn't resist picking it up and seeing how the authors interpreted Bulgakov's writing.

Unfortunately, I was very disappointed.

The novel is presented in black and white watercolor for reality and color pastel (oil or chalk, I can't recall) for fantasy. While I enjoyed the art style of the watercolor, the pastel art style seemed...a bit more unrefined and amateurish (especially shown in profile shots). But presentation is something I can look past, because perhaps the artists presented it like that on purpose.

However, the content is very bare bones. All the major plot points are hit upon, but they feel extremely rushed and glossed over. An example: only one or two panels are dedicated to the ball, then we're immediately taken to Woland's apartment. There are no details about the guests or how Maragrita's struggling to continue to play hostess as the ball drags on.

The authors also shuffle an event or two around. For example, the graphic novel actually opens with the Master telling his tale - something that doesn't happen until someways into the novel.

I ended up giving it to my neighbor who's been meaning to read the Karpelson translation, but hasn't had the time. Even he said it was disappointing.

The best of Russian literature 14 Dec 2013
By John T C - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My friend recommended this book to me, and what actually made me to buy it was because he considered it his favorite book of all time. I agree with him about that. It is an amazing book. Not only that, I developed an interest in the author's other works. Nevertheless, this is the best book written by Mikhail Bulgakov. It is an absolute masterpiece, a classic accepted in Russia and the rest of the world.

"Master and Margarita" is about purges Stalin ordered in the Soviet Union. The curious thing about this book is that the purges are depicted not to have been carried out Stalin's men, but rather by Satan himself, and in the manner of Baron Munchaussen, we get to know of a huge talking cat. Like animal farm, the greater meaning of the book is revealed through the intelligent though bizarre, compelling and humorous story. One is constantly left anticipating what the next page holds. There are so many layers and so many little details that one wonders how the author managed to put them together.

Bulgakov is the Soviet version of Imperial Russia's Dostoevsky, but unlike Dostoyevsky who had a mastery of the mind/soul Bulgakov mastery is in the literature of oppression. I have recommended this book to many friends and family and recommend it to any reader interested in the enigma that is Russia, especially Stalinist Russia. Other interesting stories set in Russia are The Union Moujik, Taras Bulba, Putin’s Russia, Life and Death of Lenin, War and Peace. Also note that you are sure to find the widest selection of odd and creepy characters in this book.
