5.0 out of 5 stars A true Russian classic, 4 Aug. 2013
This is an incredibly gripping story based around the experience of a young man during the Russian Civil War and the later effects this has on his life in Paris as an emigre. The author delves into the realms of existentialism, fatalism and ideas of pre-destination, while keeping a markedly brisk pace in the novel's page-turning plot. It isn't exactly a whodunit, or even a whydunit, but more of a retrospective am-I-destined-to-do-it.

The style of the book is eclectic, mixing the philosophical, the murder-mystery, the thriller and even a hint of satire and comedy, while the language itself is lively and elegant throughout. A true Russian classic!
