খারাপ কথাবারতা আগে লিখি...
বইটা সমপরকে সবচেয়ে পরচলিত পরশংসা হল এটা মঙগলগরহে নিয়ে যাবার জনয সবচেয়ে বেশী ভোট পাওয়া বই। তবে আমি খুব ভাল করেই জানি যে এই বই আমি মঙগল গরহে নিচছি না। একবছর ধরে আসলে বইটা পড়তে থাকলেও এবার শুরু থেকে পাঁচ দিনে পড়লাম। এর জনয নিজেকে রং চা, দুধ-চা, কফি চা, গরম কফি, কোলড কফি, বলযাক কফি সহ নানা ধরণের ঘুষ পরদান করতে হয়েছে। আর নিজেকে ঘুষ পরদানের সুবযবসথা খুব সমভবত মঙগল গরহে থাকবে না। জানি না দোষটা কার, লেখকের না অনুবাদকের, কখনো মনে হয়েছে লেখকে

i read this book years ago and i wasn't able to understand it because of my age, but now is really one of my favorites, i could believe the emotions of the character as if they were real and not something someone made up, even thought im not entirely sure if i like the character of pavel korchaguin due to the narrow minded in wich he is portraited and the fact that he has no toleration to other way of thinking that is not his own, and his true is the only true, but you can blame it to the histo ...more

I read this book long ago. I was maybe ten years old. (30 y ago..?)wow!!!
it was my dad who started reading it. he read a few pages aloud to me and my sisters. we were so "enamored" of Pavel and his adventures alot.
when Dad was at work, we read a few pages ... and then after a few days I red it by myself alone! I could not leave it from me, this amazing book. a year later I saw the movie at a cinema in Tehran.I have strong memories of the book. it is well writen.Yes it does propaganda but it sh

This book is probably the most famous example of Socialist Realism, which was the only approved writing style of the Stalin era in the Soviet Union. Ostrovsky vigorously toes the party line, extolling the virtues of the Red Army, the Bolsheviks and collectivization of farms while condemning the Whites, the bourgeoisie, the Trotskyites, bandits, wreckers and a variety of other imaginary enemies of the Soviet state.

This book is also famous for being bad. As literature it gets a solid F. The vocab

It is not your classic page turner, but for me, it was simply the passion of Pavel Korchagin (the protagonist) that drove me through this book. Read the latter 200 pages in one sitting. You may want to feel a little sorry for Pavel by the end but his enthusiasm makes you realize that feeling sorry would be an insult to him.

think of inspiration and this is one of few books that come to my mind.
a very good description of building of socialist russia and the spirit behind it. but moreover this also entails a great autobiographical adventurous journey of the author. it has so many incidents that we could only wish for, right from the childhood to the youth of the author. more importantly it is a story of endless energy, strength, and spirit to achieve something dear to ones heart. it is story which teaches you how th

I am very disappointed by this book and believe that it became so famous because of its Soviet propaganda. It may be somewhat interesting from historical point of view, but if you want to read about revolution in Russia, there are definitely better historical and fiction books on the topic. "How the Steel Was Tempered" doesn't have much value as a work of art, so I would recommend to save your time and read something else.

Yet another merde of propaganda, making heroes out of the idiots and idiots out of the readers.

No need to mention that this trite tale of heroic deeds of late blind cretin Pavka Korchagin can excite only a very simple proletarian mind that ready to dash for some vague idea, lusting to "expropriate expropriated" and enthrone mediocrity at the global level.

I'm not sure that Ostrovsky's semi-autobiographical novel of a young man growing up in Ukraine through the Russian Revolution, and subsequent civil war between the Whites and Red Army, has aged well. As a child my mother read this to me and my brother and I remembered it as more of a ripping yarn than it actually is.

The first part tells the story of our hero, young Pavel's town through the occupation by first the Germans, then the Bolsheviks, the White army of Ukrainians and Poles, then the Bols

I will recommend a very good book for everybody,it named how the steel was tempered. Do you think this book is about “Steel”? You must be wrong.Just read it, and know what it about.You will love it,trust me.The story is a fictionalized autobiography. It is about a person only in the revolution to defeat the enemy in the difficulties and hardships can overcome their own,only in their pursuit and the motherland,the people's interests linked together,will create a miracle,only the growth of the iro ...more
Here we have the classic Soviet story which is by all accounts an autobiographical historical fiction work. Many reviews often dismiss this novel due to its Bolshevik tone. In doing so, they miss the main gist of the entire novel: what makes an average person into a giant?

Pavel Korchagin begins a life of struggle working in a kitchen with abusive employers during the time of Tsar. As the winds of history change, so too Pavel grows along with them. As the story progresses, Pavel endures many tria

Ostrovski'nin otobiyografik özellik taşıyan bu romanı Pavel Korçagin adında Ukraynalı bir gencin devrim sürecine dahil oluşu üzerinden inancın ve başarmanın hikayesini anlatıyor.

Yalın anlatımı sebebi ile çok eleştirilen bir kitap bu, ama aksine benim en hoşuma giden yönlerinden biriydi. 20. yüzyılın yazın anlayışını taşıması benim için bir eksi değil çok büyük bir artı açıkçası. Mikro anlamda devrim sürecinin en küçük kasabalarda nasıl yaşandığını, sıradan insanları nasıl etkilediğini, kaosun i

It gives me an idea that a country and an era that I have ever experienced, I do remember my grandpa tells me how his life was like thirty or forty years ago, which is definitely away from me, but I can make some connections between these two scene, which is kind of fantasy for me, and think about it for a while, the picture is also clear and I can even imagine the harsh environ

An autobiography of Nikolai Ostrovsky, which portray how the Bolshevik revolution became a need of the society. The author became more of a storyteller and sketched the political,social and economic scenario in Russia. One of the most evident novels which imply Bolshevik revolution was a part of people's life back then. The emotional involvement of the author with his struggle overpower the story. But once someone starts reading it,it's hard to put off.

I just finished reading the first part of the book, it filled me with the spirit of revolution. Pavel is no strange person to me, I know and hear of heroes that resist and fight for their cause since I was a child and until now. The collaborative work, the mutual eager for freedom, the fight for your cause are present both in the book and in my life. I know I would have been great friends with Nickolai Ostrovsky, because revolutionaries are the same no matter where or when.

A typical bildungsroman. Expected much more from it, since it's considered to be one of the 20th century classics of Russian literature. Boring for the most part, with a dozen too many irrelevant characters that are introduced to the reader throughout the book. Had to force myself to finish it.

This book is horrible !! This book is Propaganda !!
Pavel Korceaghin is MEANT to appear a good person. Yet on a clouser examination he lack's character development and is a character driven by HATE and VIOLANCE.
The bolshevic party, the comunists and the soviet union are MADE to APPEAR good people.
The polish, the tsarists, the white army are MEANT to appear as the bad and inhumane guys !!
