received in the mail from Moody-Blue of Big Bend National Park in West Texas. This book formerly belonged to the Panther Junction Community Library which was an OBCZ maintained by Moody-Blue who is now donating this book to the 1001-library.

This book was written in 1859 when Turgenev was feeling hopeful about the positive social changes in Russia following Alexander II ascension to the Russian throne in 1855. "On The Eve" is about a Bulgarian revolutionary Insarov.

Journal Entry 6 by TracyW on Monday, May 3, 2010
I wasn't particularly impressed with this book. I found both Elena and Insarov rather dull and one-dimensional, and couldn't really be convinced that they had fallen so deeply for each other - Hardy did this sort of love much better in Tess of the D'Ubervilles. And the events in the novel struck me as sort of a ticking off - the alternative suitors for Elena, the unfaithful husband, the scene where the hero proves his strength and defends the heroine, the life-threatening illness with the devoted heroine, the deathscene, all in there, and all in all, yawn.
The side characters are more interesting than Elena and Insarov, I particularly liked Bersenev, and Shubin was a very good portrait and made me feel much more sympathetic with this type of character in real life.
