Part 2 Ch. 5 has one of the strangest transitions I have ever read in a book. Stolz has asked Oblomov to join him traveling abroad. Oblomov owes him a letter explaining why he hasn't joined him. Suddenly, one paragraph to the next, Oblomov is walking down a country road, gathering flowers for Olga (who has just now appeared in the book, a new friend that Stolz has introduced him to). Stolz is back in the country. Nu?

To answer questions about Oblomov, please sign up.
Tom I think that the transition should introduce us into this drastic new situation that Oblomov was in and kickstart the second plotline of the book.
