The Captain's Daughter : Essential Stories Alexander Pushkin, Antony Briggs (Translated by) Series: Pushkin Collection


This is a small collection of Russian stories.  These were set in years long ago so they are not pleasant tales to read.  Those in charge have no remorse about the deaths they caused.  Even when they weren't fighting, people died.

Pushkin Collection and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published on June 15th.

My Grandfather was a Czech who could speak 8 languages.  He knew Russians and these tales sound a bit like the stories he told.  Long ago, every man was for himself and being nice didn't count.

These stories are memorable.  They will stick with you for a while.  There's no happy ever after in these tales...
