    Another excellent book

    AND QUIET FLOWS THE DON is the best war novel in Soviet times, the best Mikhail Sholokhov ever wrote and one of the all time best war novels. Life during moments of peace-whether long or fleeting is given exquisite touch through the characters who cannot avoid the war around the corner. This epic story grapples with the blindness of war where people engage in killing each other even after they have forgotten the causes and purpose of the war, regarding instead those close by as the real enemies when in reality they are fighting for the enemy who are those who manipulated them into war.

    Worthy to read book

    Very inscriptive book where one family presents history in this country. Stories are connected with the words very known Russian's authors and people's knowledge. War is presenting revolution that after that is convict for all old good paid soldiers. In this connection between war and romance, romance lost brevity and gained faith and in contrary, war is everything. Army is not necessarily needed, people are soldiers. It is interesting how this people don't have anything to say about their perishing. Furthemore, they are taking it like destiny where any changes are impossible. A waiting is only left in many years and this water that takes their life's confessions. Worthy is to read this book that says much in many words. This is easy to read book and everybody who is fascinated with stories from other people can gain respect.
