Satan's Diary


Read by Crln Yldz Ksr

(4.6 stars; 7 reviews)

"Satan's Diary", Andreyev's last work, was completed by the great Russian a few days before he died in Finland, in September, 1919. But a few years ago the most popular and successful of Russian writers, Andreyev died almost penniless, a sad, tragic figure, disillusioned, broken-hearted over the tragedy of Russia.
In "Satan's Diary", Andreyev summoned up his boundless disillusionment in an absorbing satire on human life. Fearlessly and mercilessly he hurled the falsehoods and hypocrisies in the face of life. He portrayed Satan coming to this earth to amuse himself and play. Having assumed the form of an American multi-millionaire, Satan set out on a tour through Europe in quest of amusement and adventure. Before him passed various forms of spurious virtues, hypocrisies, the ruthless cruelty of man and the often deceptive innocence of woman. Within a short time, Satan finds himself outwitted, deceived, relieved of his millions, mocked, humiliated, beaten by man in his own devilish devices. (Summary by Herman Bernstein, in the Preface) (8 hr 50 min)

PRETTY HILARIOUS, THEN IT GOT SADDER


(4 stars)

I don’t believe a mentally I’ll man could have written this. It’s poignant to read that after all this, he was really looking forward to visiting the US! Satan demonstrates real goodness, Earthling very so so, and Satan is always uncertain as to the reactions of us, his reader/confidantes. Which is charming too. Carolin made this possible bc it’s a long, tough book.
