Very interesting short story. It is important and worth reading due to its influence on Russian Literature, but it's also a very enjoyable read. It can most certainly be read in one sitting. Kate Shrewsday is flawless and a perfect choice for this story.

Extremely accessible writing. Strangely I found it's style similar to current Hollywood movies which shows the modernity of Gogol's mind. His depiction of the downtrodden is humorous and keenly observed. His portrayal of a power crazy petty beurocrat rapier-like. Like the ultimately ghostly protagonist Gogol exacts his revenge on the absurd in humanity in the immortal characters he leaves behind.
