Publisher's Summary

The Master and Margarita is one of the most famous and best-selling Russian novels of the 20th century, despite its surreal environment of talking cats, Satan, and mysterious happenings. Naxos AudioBooks presents this careful abridgement of a new translation in an imaginative reading by the charismatic Julian Rhind-Tutt. With War and Peace and Crime and Punishment among the Naxos AudioBooks best-sellers, this too promises to be a front title.


What the Critics Say

"Bulgakov’s satire of the greed and corruption of Soviet authorities illustrates the redemptive nature of art and faith, and Julian Rhind-Tutt’s superb interpretation does the classic full justice. With a dramatic flair and a deep, multilayered voice, he pulls off a host of fantastical characters including Professor Woland (Satan) and several of his associates, Pontius Pilate and Jesus Christ, witches and madmen and a variety of early 20th-century Moscow literary and theater types."

Definitely the best Russian novel

What made the experience of listening to The Master and Margarita the most enjoyable?

The extraordinary mixture of stories and characters in way similar to F. Kafka style of writing full of several parallel worlds, yet realistic and well managed to keep the reader focused and curious.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
