Dead Souls (Barnes & Noble Classics Series) 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 15 reviews.

This is a great classic novel, but there are sizeable gaps in the plot, due to the authors burning of sections of the story. So you sort of feel left out of the loop and wish there was more. Gogol has a good style and his hero is an enjoyable ruffian.

Nikolai Gogol's "Dead Souls" is a unique, often humurous, often macabre novel. As a whole, it is unusually not uniform, beginning as an amusing, simple tale, growing into a brilliant critique of Gogol's generation and, really, every generation afterwards, and climaxing as the author elegantly bemoans his country's state and teaches valuable lessons through his characters' dialogue. The original manuscript of "Dead Souls" is missing many considerable sections of Part II, but this does not diminish the story. Although I'm sure that the missing writings were masterfully done and it is unfortunate that they're lost, "Dead Souls" loses none of its poignance or merit because of them. I absolutely recommend it.

Brilliant writing. Witty and entertaining

An interesting read, but more like some type of out-of-context article series. I would say not to look for much coherency, but there are still some very, very interesting moments worth the effort.
