Tolstoy's Resurrection is marvelous in the fullest sense of the word - a story so improbable that it must be a miraculous achievement.

Vance is Wonderful!
First of all, Simon Vance is a wonderful reader. He does a brilliant job with the long Russian names which made this a pleasure to listen to. And the first half of the book I found completely captivating -- Tolstoy is an excellent writer and I loved his humor and detail. However, I'm afraid I lost interest during the second part of the book as I felt there were many new characters constantly being introduced who did not add to the story. I guess I was also a bit disappointed with the ending, but I guess it was a rather gutsy thing to write at the time.
