All of the sudden, you waxed loquacious about the Russian countryside and the main character’s psyche.


I didn’t love it. In light of this, it might be tempting to view Dead Souls as a kind of morality tale, wherein a bunch of unfortunate people are duped out of their property, or as a warning along the lines of: I I didn’t get this book at all.

Okay, not quite “coffin ready” dead, but certainly bored to the point of suffering intermittent bouts of narcolepsy. This is an unfinished novel, however do not let that put you off, nosiree!
