Boris Pasternak

Doctor Zhivago
Adult Fiction

It is the story of Zhivago, poet and physician, and his struggle to keep his family alive in the midst of the overwhelming chaos of the Russian Revolution. And, it is about Zhivago's love for the beautiful Lara, the woman he pursues beyond all reason. Yurii becomes a prisoner of the Partisans, separated from his wife and family and from Lara. His brooding intelligence finds courage and dignity far beyond that of any political ideology.

Meeka says:
Wow. What can I say, if you want to learn more about Russia, this is a book to read. If you saw the movie, it's OK, but misses out on the in-depth insights offered by Pasternak. This was great.
