Avital Gertner-Samet's review
Jun 09, 2008
“A Russian Novel” was a masterpiece of describing characters. Each of the characters in the story had a complete story behind him. A full description of appearance and traits and skills and a long list of feelings and wills and loves and hatred. In this story, Shalev, skillfully told the story of a small group of veterans which had immigrated to Israel from Russia during the Second Immigration, which took place from 1904 until 1914. They had first lived under the British regime and had built their villages from scratch – under the swamps they had dried with their bare hands. This group of veterans had children and grandchildren and friends and each and every one of them is described meticulously and beautifully.
