5.0 out of 5 stars This is more like it, 1 Nov 2010
This review is from: A Hero of Our Time (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
This is, quite simply, the way a novel should be written, in my opinion. Not that the structure should be a goal in itself, because it is rather unorthodox, but this book has everything a good novel needs. I have read several modern books lately, and they just can't be compared to classic Russian literature, which is the definite apex in literature. This book by Lermontov had a huge influence on many writers, not the least of whom were his own countrymen, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the genre, or wants to get to know the genre. The foreword and introduction are both well-written and informative, but they should be read after the book itself, as always, in my opinion. This is a great book by a great writer.
