About half way through the book, I looked up the author to see if she was a teenager. I really did because the characters are out of a 16 year old's fantasy. The main male character is a billionaire (not a millionaire but a billionaire) who speaks fluent French, is basically a concert level pianist, is a fully trained pilot, is athletic, drop dead gorgeous, tall, built perfectly with an enormous penis, and the best lover on the planet. In addition, he's not only self made but is using his money to combat world hunger. Oh yeah, and all of this at the ripe old age of 26! And on top of that, he's never working. Every second is spent having sex or texting and emailing the female character. His billions seem to have just come about by magic. It seriously feels like 2 teenage girls got together and decided to create their "dream man" and came up with Christian Grey.

hahahaha

Bulgakov: Master and Margarita

I finished Fathers and Sons a few days ago but had no time to start with Bulgakov until today. Would you mind elaborating on your displeasure? I've read my fair share of Bulgakov (and other Russians, for that matter) and can say that have not been disappointed a single time.

Dubliners arrived this morning and I can't wait to start reading. I liked Clay quite a bit, but am unfamiliar with anything else.


Ivan Turgenev: Fathers and Sons
His most famous novel is set in 1859, two years before the abolition of serfdom in Russia. The book focuses on the conflict between the humanistic-idealistic coloured father's generation and their rebellious, materialistic and disillusioned offspring. Archetype of the young Nihilists is the medical student Basarov from St. Petersburg, who accompanies his dear Arkadij Kirsanov on his return journey to his father's home. Fierce verbal disputes with Arkadij's uncle Pawel will follow and even culminate in a dues; his unfortunate love for a widow may cause a dramatic aftermath.
In 1862, Turgenjev introduced the term Nihilism to a broad public with this masterpiece. Explicit recommendation!
