Publisher's Summary

Gogol's great comic masterpiece paints an hilariously satirical picture of provincial life in 19th century Russia. Its publication in 1847 not only provided inspiration for succeeding generations of Russian writers, but fanned the already flickering flames of social discontent which were eventually to flare up and consume Russia in the revolution of 1917.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

"Gordon Griffin does a marvelous, plummy job of bringing Dead Souls through a glass, darkly." (AudioFile)

    "dead souls"

    Didn't care for the abridged version of this book. There was too much missing that was important to the story.

    Story
    "Dead Souls is a very funny book"
    Would you listen to Dead Souls again? Why?

    This book is a classic study in the dark comedic aspects of human behavior. The story is about a scam and the responses of the characters when presented with the scam. Everybody wants their piece of the pie.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The understanding of human nature.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The chess game.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Several. The characters that refused to participate were moving.


    Any additional comments?

    A good book to listen to.

    "Abridged but side-splittingly funny"

    Hilarious descriptions of Russian personalities which have many equivalents in contemporary society. very well abridged and beautifully read
