If you're looking for a book with superb writing style and awesome flow of sentence and plot... this book isn't it. But if you're looking for an inspiring, eye-opening, motivating story, you have got to read this book. It really changed the way I look at the world.
Mar 19, 2013 Jo rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
This was probably the best book I've ever read. I don't understand why it is basically unknown in the U.S. It is a series about nature, love, religion, science, the environment, living, family, basically everything under the sun. Cannot WAIT to read the next one.

Anastasia tells the story of a girl who lives in the middle of nowhere, inside the Russian taiga, and has supernatural powers and a vision of the world that differs from the one that prevails in the western societies.

The main point of the book is that this technocratic society we are living in is wrong, and by leading a lifestyle closer to the nature, simple and rudimentary, we all would be happier. So the author starts to mention, one by one, all the things Anastasia told him (figuratively spea

I read this book a couple weeks ago. I did enjoy the book and it brought some awareness. I did find the writing to be a little disjointed, perhaps because it was translated from Russian. There are a few parts that seem hard to believe. I have studied quantum physics and understand many of the conceps in this book but once in a while, its a stretch for our minds ;). The more books I read in this series the more I like it.
I'm intrigued by the ideas but I cannot stand the author and the writing his horrible, will read the next one as I want to hear more about the gardening and nature aspect, I am hoping Vladimir isn't as vulgar and Anastasia not as airheaded this time around - for someone so enlightened she chose a horrible mating partner (who is also married to someone else...)

This is the first of nine books (books 1 through 8, which is in two parts). I would give it a two for writing style and a four for ideas. The Russian author describes his encounter with Anastasia, a free spirit who lives alone in a Russian forest in tune with the natural world. This is one of those books that is difficult to know if it is fiction or non-fiction. In either case, the ideas presented about relationships, planting seeds, honoring nature, being in tune with oneself and the greater sp ...more

this book was a little bit of a let down. The questions from other readers slowed the pace too much. The open letter to Putin was intriguing. Good insights, but I didn't find the narrative of this book up to the quality of the rest of the series (which is not great to begin with)
I picked this up at the Clearfield library because it was a pretty cover and it sounded interesting. It was a new insight into life and some of the things that we should be doing to keep our world better. I thought it gave some good insight into life and how we can be better people. It also gave insight into why are Christian world have gone corrupt and still is. It talked about how the "High Priests" really have made the world what it is today,

Eerste deel van een serie - Anastasia - over de ontmoeting en de uitwisseling tussen Anastasia - een volledig met de natuur verbonden wijze vrouw - en een zakenman. Wat deze ontmoeting teweeg brengt in zijn leven en welke wijze lessen hij allemaal leert van Anastasia: dat is waar het over gaat.
Dit eerste deel smaakt naar meer en ik ga dus zeker binnenkort beginnen aan deel twee: Vladimir Megre - Anastasia - 02. De zoemende ceders van Rusland

Shelves: life-changers
this book resorts back to more of the clumsy style of book three. However, the clumsiness and the awkward reading gives way to the ultimate reason why book 5 should be read: the last two chapters. But don't think to simply read the past two chapters without wallowing through the first part of the book.

Just too much. This is a poorly written fiction posing as a true account. The idea of Anastasia is interesting, but he fails to create a believable character. There are other reviews on Goodreads and Tya's is the best, so rather than spell out all the flaws myself, I'll just refer you to hers.

There has been worldwide hype about this book and the series it begins, and for good reason. The story of Anastasia is the story of humanity's true nature. Read it from your heart.

So bad it made me feel sick. Really badly written. Dont read it and dont believe in this crap. There are so many other good books about spirituality you dont need this.

Really great book, taking us to the life of a woman in nature. Very methafysical, down to earth as well.
