"This was a beautiful and sad love story about a man caught up in WW1, the Russian Revolution, Civil War and finally Communism. He also is torn between two women as well, his wife Tonya and his "true love" Larisa. This story touched me since I myself have been torn between many men."
"The first Russian novel I have ever read, its about a woman that commits adultry and leaves her husband and son for this loser Voronsky. I also question the relashionship of Levin and Kitty, who would want a woman like her? Anyways, Anna is scolded by society while her brother enjoys cheating on his wife and doesn't get scolded for that."
"This is not only a story about war but also a love story too. It concerns Natasha Rostov who makes a fine match for Pierre and also concerns Prince Andrey who went on the rebound after his wife died in childbirth. Then there's Nicolai Natasha's brother, who's in love with his cousin Sonya, now that's just gross!"
"Turgeniv is infamous for writting love stories according to my Russian tutor, this is not just about the generation gap between two sons and their fathers, but also about the two men that find love, one finds true love while the other one suffers unrequetted love."
"A very classical story of unrequetted love, my oldest favoriet story and it invovles a deformed & deaf bellringer who is in love with a selfish but good looking gypsy girl named Esmerelda, while the evil priest Frollo has his eye on her as well. It is a sad story, but it made me feel human which is what is so beautiful about it."
"The classic tale of forbidden love which spawned many parodies, modern-day situations and all that jazz. Despite the fact that many people despise Shakespeare's writting, I'm not one of those people. The story is tragic, but its a classical kind of tragity with two horny teens invovled in it."
"This gothic horror novel is more tragic than horror. Victor Frankenstein follows his creation up north and he gets rescued from the snow by a ship captain, he tells the story to this captain. The story of course has a moral to it, don't play God! You won't know what you are doing half the time if you do."
"Its about a guy that steals bred for his staving family, gets put into prison for it, lives out his sentence and gets released back into society. While out in society he betters himself, and takes in a daughter of a prostitute who used to work for his company. He's also being stocked by an officer who was his guard in prison."
