Spring Torrents is a story for everyone who has ever been in love to read. Finding true love, and then ruining it all due to a chance encounter. The only disappointing part of this book is the ending, in which Turgenev seemed to be rushing to end the book. The suffering in this book relates to that of Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment.

I first read 'Spring Torrents' at the impressionable age of 18. I re-read the book recently and amazingly, after years of disappointment in love, I found that the beauty and power of love still enrapture me tremendously. I hope that other readers will share the same wonderful feeling when they read the description of the first moments when the two main characters fall in love. Beautiful beyond words!

This is a well written work, with a rather trite plot but interesting ending. A young Russian man on his way home to Russia meets an Italian girl in Germany and falls in love. They become engaged. But in order to raise money for his marriage, he meets an old school chem and ends up attempting to sell his estate to this friends very rich, beautiful wife. This woman, however, is a seductive, very strong, commanding woman. An unfortunate relationship develops between her and the young Russian leading to an unexpected ending.
This is a good read for the ladies.
