What would have made Fathers and Sons better?
I'm not sure where Charles Minx got the inspiration for the accents he uses for his characters, but they all sound the same and as if they were taken straight from "Fiddler on the Roof" Either that, or he was channeling some lower-East Side deli owner.
Oy!, Mr. Turgenev, what a schmatte he's made of your novel!
Even worse is that Minx uses that same dreadful accent for *all* the characters in the book. It's unfortunate because Minx's voice--when he's speaking normally and not trying to be 'in character''--is quite listenable and pleasant.
Added to this mess is Minx's inability to pronounce French, which is important since--as with most Russian novels of the 19th century--French words and phrases are scattered throughout.
