One of my favorite books of all time. It’s realistic story that stands the test of time. As a poet writing prose, Pasternak has a way of inflecting his storytelling with powerful sentences and sentence structures. A simple turn of phrase is often enough to convey depths of love or grief or loss or the passing of time.

This is the best of Soviet literature. You don’t have to read Ayn Rand. You can read great literature instead.
