Read in March, 2011

"Buddha's Little Finger" by Victor Peleven, in Russian called "Chapaev and Pustota" where "Chapaev" is the last name and "Pustota" means emptiness. I guess this is the one of the best written and known books of this author. Previous stories weren't as clear as this one. After reading this particular book, I started to understand author a little more. In this book Pelevin shows world and the most simple things in it like, soul, love, conscience, and the place of the human in reality and reality of humans reality, but through his own eyes. Pelevin explores all of these simple things through his own understanding and perspective of the world, and to be more exact he looks at things through the "Pelevin - Buddha" type of eyes. It is his own world, he created it and he is enjoying it, same as his readers do during the reading of this book. Definitely, interesting book to read even though a little strange.
