As the lesser known of Tolstoy's 3 great novels (War and Peace, Anna Karennia, Resurrection), it is still a masterpiece. The story is quite moving and the ending is great and much easier to understand than Anna Karennia's (many believe that Anna Karennia truly ends where Anna dies but Levin's return to faith is the real climax according to many literary critics). Anyway, read this book and you won't be disappointed!

I personally appreciate this work. this book seems to suggest us the solution to our problems and a number of contradictions in our daily lives. I estimate this book as a part of Tolstoy.

I found Resurrection to be a very moving book. It chronicles how a shiftless russian nobleman regained the meaning of his life. His quest began when he found himself doing jury duty at trial of a girl he had sedudced and abandoned in his youth. He decided to try and better her situation, and in the process had to probe and question many areas of social life and also his own life. In the end, you will see why this book is aptly named.
