I was nervous about this but was completely wrong. From the first page the characters are touchingly authentic with Arkady's father desperate to see his son after so long away from home. The background of all the characters is carefully constructed and the whole novel is a profile of Russia at the time - being on the cusp of change.
Throughout the story there are some wonderful set pieces of scenes in the lives of the individuals which appear in the mind almost as if they were paintings with every small detail described.
I could analyse this novel for pages but much of this has been done before - all I can say is read it!
I'm going to read some more of the Russian classics after this one.
One thing worth mentioning though is that this version comes in an A4 format although the font is a usual size. Bit odd to read.
Also this translation uses quite modern language when compared to other versions which was interesting.
