Publisher's Summary

'Of course, you cannot understand me: we belong to two different generations....'When Arkady Petrovich comes home from college, his father finds his eager, naive son changed almost beyond recognition, for the impressionable Arkady has fallen under the powerful influence of the friend he has brought with him.A self-proclaimed nihilist, the ardent young Bazarov shocks Arkady's father by criticising the landowning way of life and by his outspoken determination to sweep away the traditional values of contemporary Russian society.

The greatest novel I'll ever read

Any additional comments?

I'm not even going to attempt to write a review, it would be impossible for me to put into any words how personal this book is for me, how much it means to me, how stunningly beautiful, sad, insightful, and perfect this novel is.

I'm not sure I ever need to read another novel again.

Fathers and Sons is perfect. I'm in love with it.

Romantic Russian Novel

The perfect realistic Russian 19th century novel with all the loose ends tied at the end. Love conquers all. Has a wry good humored understanding of human nature and makes gentle fun of mens foibles.
