Críticas

Todo empieza en 1925, en la dacha de los Grádov. El padre, Boris Nikítovich, es un brillante cirujano y un maestro respetado; la madre, de origen georgiano, se consagra a su casa, a sus hijos y al piano; el hijo mayor, Nikita, es un joven oficial superior del Ejército Rojo, su hermano Kiril, es un bolchevique, es un amante de la Revolución y del Partido; y su pequeña hermana Nina, una joven poeta de enorme belleza. Lenin ha muerto y el Partido está dividido entre los seguidores de Stalin y los miembros de la oposición liderada por Trotski. Los Grádov se verán implicados, a su pesar, en la Revolución y esto marcará el comienzo de un largo proceso de transformación que abarcará sometiendo a todos los miembros de la familia.… (mais)

Un roman fleuve (plus de 1600 pages) historique et romanesque, non exempt de longueurs ou de passages difficiles pour qui n’est pas bien au courant des pensées et faits historiques, mais qui emporte le lecteur tel un ”Guerre et Paix” du 20e siècle.… (mais)

Great idea, terrible outcome. Pseudo-intellectual pretensions. I expected so much more from this book. Not a single plausible, or at lease semi-believable, female character.
