Resurrection, Book 3

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.7 stars; 41 reviews)

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) (4 hr 0 min)

Great read

(5 stars)

This book was definitely better than I thought it was very well written even though the story slows down a bit but it's the patience of actually understanding the concept behind his writing

(5 stars)

This was a very good book but seems to be left unfinished. I enjoyed it though and found the readers quote good although at times a bit quiet. excellent job overall top all the volunteers!
