Resurrection, Book 1

Gelesen von LibriVox Volunteers

(4,526 Sterne; 58 Bewertungen)

Resurrection is the last of Tolstoy's major fiction works published in his lifetime. Tolstoy intended the novel as an exposition of injustice of man-made laws and the hypocrisy of institutionalized church. It was first published serially in the magazine Niva as an effort to raise funds for the resettlement of the Dukhobors. The story concerns a nobleman named Nekhlyudov, who seeks redemption for a sin committed years earlier. His brief affair with a maid resulted in her being fired and ending up in prostitution. The book treats his attempts to help her out of her current misery, but also focuses on his personal mental and moral struggle.(Summary from Wikipedia)

(The review is on the book as whole)

(4,5 Sterne)

People always are stuck in adj, describing, with more and more words what a certain person "is" ... they go on doing that, without noticing how judgemental they may get, and how their judgements are not only cold and remote of objectivity.. they also lack humanity warmth,.. on that path, humans had succeed killing humanity in others, and even in themselves and the so called "ciminals" can be among the list of their victims. But the truth is what Tolstoy had tried to express saying "humans are like rivers.." no one ever had the right to judge then because what he is judging is only a state of the person,.. and since he may not guess how such state had developed, nor why it did, he can not make a just judgment, therefore he have no right to make it.

perfect book

(3,5 Sterne)

This is my first Tolstoy’s book and I really loved it. I am going to read all of his books in the near future.. I have truly enjoyed all the narrators apart from one that couldn’t understand because of a car horn in the background..

Great read
