Three weeks to read, three weeks to recover!

Epic. A classic on a par with War and Peace (yes, really), which was what the Author read three times during his over 1,000 days at the front during WWII!

To get a taste of this, there are a series of dramatizations of small parts on the BBC website, with Brannagh etc starring which are excellent in and of themselves. Back-story of Grossman and this book are fascinating too.

I began thinking I'd NEVER finish it, and was devastated when it ended!

"Review" by , "[A] classic of 20th century Russian literature."
"Review" by , "[An] extraordinarily dark portrait of Soviet society."
"Review" by , "To read Life and Fate is, among other things, to have some sense of how it feels not to be free...In more ways than one, Life and Fate is a testament to the strength of character that terrorized human souls are capable of attaining. It is a noble book."
"Review" by , "Takes its place beside The First Circle and Doctor Zhivago as a masterful evocation of the fate of Russia as it is expressed through the lives of its people."
"Synopsis" by , Completed in the late 1950s by its distinguished Russian author, this novel has been recognized as fiction on an epic scale: powerful, deeply moving, and devastating in its depiction of a world mutilated by war and ideological tyranny.
