Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.
I hope everyone has had a good start to the week so far.
I’m really craving some classics at the moment and have decided once I have finished my dissertation I will go on a classics binge read. So I have decided to choose a classic for my Goodreads Monday.
Here is my chosen book.
Serving on the jury at a murder trial, Prince Dmitri Nekhlyudov is devastated when he sees the prisoner – Katyusha, a young maid he seduced and abandoned years before. As Dmitri faces the consequences of his actions, he decides to give up his life of wealth and luxury to devote himself to rescuing Katyusha, even if it means following her into exile in Siberia. But can a man truly find redemption by saving another person? Tolstoy’s most controversial novel, Resurrection (1899) is a scathing indictment of injustice, corruption and hypocrisy at all levels of society. Creating a vast panorama of Russian life, from peasants to aristocrats, bureaucrats to convicts, it reveals Tolstoy’s magnificent storytelling powers.
Two of my favourite books are Anna Karenina and War and Peace so I am really looking forward to reading this.
Please drop me a comment with your Goodreads Monday and I will head over for a visit.
