Rather interesting than captivating. After 50 pages it was quite predictable he will fall for her and for a while I had the feeling I was reading the Russian version of "Pride and prejudice", but thank goodness it wasn't so. I am a fan of happy endings but I swear, if this one ended happily I wouldn't have read Turgenev again.

Turgenev has an interesting way of setting his work, maybe I'll get into details after finishing Fathers and Sons.


Interesting fact: in 1979, a Russian discovered an asteroid and named it Turgenev, after the writer.
