The Kreutzer Sonata

Gelesen von LibriVox Volunteers

(4,38 Sterne; 25 Bewertungen)

Publication of The Kreutzer Sonata in 1889 was a significant intellectual event worldwide. Censored in Russia, it set off an explosive debate in Europe, America, and Asia on matters relating to sexual abstinence and the hypocrisy of marriage. The novella emphasizes Tolstoy's controversial view on sexuality, which asserts that physical desire is an obstacle to relations between men and women and may result in tragedy. The Kreutzer Sonata has been recognized as among the best examples of Tolstoy's art of storytelling.(Introduction by Dorlene Kaplan) (3 hr 41 min)

Pretty good reading and interesting story

(3,5 Sterne)

The readers took a little while to get used to for me, but did a really good job. The first half of the story was slow and very philosophical, the second half got a lot more interesting, emotionally enveloped, and dramatic

great reading

(5 Sterne)

I preferred listening to this recording to reading it myself, even when I had the leisure tondo either. The voices brought the story to life quite nicely.

(4 Sterne)

This was another great Tolstoy novel, however I didn't entirely agree with the voice the reader chose for the main character.
