A true love story in the old style! Published in 1860, First Love by Ivan Turgenev is a love story in its purest form. First loves are generally both tender and innocent and Turgenev relates both in this beautiful yet very tragic story. Very few first loves run the course of only love but they generally remain with someone forever. First loves are special loves and that was what Vladimir Petrovich had for Zinaida Alexandrovna Zasyekina. This novella may be small in size but it makes this deficit up in beauty and literary impact. This is a library must and I highly recommend it to everyone!
