Virgin Soil – Ivan Turgenev

Book #842

Reviewer: Mum2threecheekykids

Translated by Rochelle S Townsend

The story starts off slow, picks up a bit in the middle and there is an unexpected twist at the end. You need to have an understanding of Russian politics in the late 1800 to really get into the book also some of the important conversations were in French and not translated so you lose some of the story if you don’t speak French. Apart from those issues it was a good book.
