    Great Read, Quick Read (Especially for Tolstoy)

    Tolstoy's last novel, Hadji Murad, is an accessible read that provides a framework within which to interpret not only the events of the novel but also serves to provide a framework within which one may interpret the events of one's own life. Tolstoy's Hadji Murad contains a microcosm of the inherent difficulties and the innate devotion connected with family. Further, anyone can find the power-hungry Shamil, the cutthroat Hadji Aga, and the overindulgent Tsar Nicholas among the characters in one's own living novel. Beyond the historical significance of the novel and the amazing prose of Tolstoy, the framework encasing the plight of Hadji Murad provides an amusing perspective when applied to the idiosyncrasies of daily life. After reading War and Peace and Anna Karenina, this is a fun one for Tolstoy. Enjoy!

    Highly Recommend

    Very enjoyable. Short by Tolstoy standards but very well written and clearly helped to understand the conflict that still exists.

    Last Master Piece of the Greatest Novelist

    Hadji Murad was Tolstoy's favorite story --a precious work of art. The tale is about the last days of the great Chechen warrior Hadji Murad who spent his courageous life fighting for his beliefs and for the independence of his people against the Russians only to be betrayed by his own. This tale is truly one of the greatest stories ever written.
