Mud and Stars review ☆ 3 characters ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Sara Wheeler Sara Wheeler ´ 3 free download With the writers of the Golden Age as her guides Pushkin Tolstoy Gogol and Turgenev among others Sara Wheeler searches for a Russia not in the news traveling from rinsed northwestern beet fields and the Far Eastern Arctic tundra to the cauldron of nation­alities religions and languages in the Caucasus Bypassing major cities as much as possible she goes instead to the places associated with the country’s literary masters With her we see the fabled Trigorskoye ?. I hate to say it but I found this to be a strange and disappointing book Ms Wheeler mentions in her introduction that during the book s gestation her life went awry badly I think and she put it away for a while before returning to it The book for me only had life in the chapters about Chekhov and Goncharov most of the rest was a slog Whilst there is some good writing and some interesting vignettes of her own travels through Russia the book for me was neither fish nor fowl I gleaned plenty about Ms Wheeler s political viewpoints but not so much about the ostensible reason for her first writing the book the greats of Russian literature
