Staff Reviews


Doctor Zhivago is a book of unflinching moral intensity, set within a landscape of incredible beauty and desolation. It is the story of doomed love during the Bolsevik Revolution and the ensuing civil war. It is a sort of companion piece, in my mind, to the seminal And Quiet Flows the Don (even though Sholokov later became a Soviet apologist), with many similiar themes. The meaning of life, the soul changing effects of violence, and the sense of moral ambiguity during times of suffering each have their place among the central themes of these two novels.
