    ePUB Susan Sherman Ù ePUB The Little Russian PDF ✓ The Little ePUB Þ Ù nessville.me little epub, russian book, The Little kindle, The Little Russian MOBIThis is a great debut novel in a difficult genre Historical fiction is challenging and Susan Sherman has done a fine job Little Russia is a derogatory term for Ukraine Great Russia was a term saved for the Muscovite Russian speaking Russian Orthodox Church believing people who lived in the largest part of the Russian Empire pre 1917 and largest Soviet Socialist Republic after 1917 Ukraine or Little Russia was viewed as a lesser mongrolized state by the Russians because it was the haven of minority peoples including Ukrainians PolesJews Moldavians gypsies and other groups The Little Russian is reminiscent of Dr Zhivago same time frame but from a JewishUkrainian perspective The writing is fresh crisp and evocative of the time and placeswith all of the inherent problems suffered by the Jewish minority The class issu

    ePUB Susan Sherman Ù ePUB The Little Russian PDF ✓ The Little ePUB Þ Ù nessville.me little epub, russian book, The Little kindle, The Little Russian MOBIHad high hopes for this one It started out good; kept my interest then it just fizzled out A great sweeping backdrop of the Ukraine Little Russia for the Jewish people at the turn of the century Ms Sherman definitely did her research Most of the book tells the story of Berta She hates her poor rural life and wants to go back to her experience of living with her rich relatives in Moscow For me it had all the right ingredients for a great historical fiction read but fell flat I think because of the author's writing techniue of telling the story in such a detached way Often a very exciting tense scene would unfold described in great detail

    ePUB Susan Sherman Ù ePUB The Little Russian PDF ✓ The Little ePUB Þ Ù nessville.me little epub, russian book, The Little kindle, The Little Russian MOBII have fairly mixed feelings about this book On the one hand it is an interesting historical novel about the pogroms in Russia in the early twentieth century It is a story of survival in the face of grim death On the other hand the main character Berta is not particularly likable she reminded me of the misplaced entitlement of Madame Bovary and some of what could be the most interesting parts of the story were left out For example when Berta's son hides in the corner of an abandoned market with Red soldiers at the door I was full of anxiety for him How wil he escape? But then the next chapter begins four days later and apparently all is well If this had happened once or twice I would be forgiving But this happened a lot Too often to really make the story satisfying in the end

    ePUB Susan Sherman Ù ePUB The Little Russian PDF ✓ The Little ePUB Þ Ù nessville.me little epub, russian book, The Little kindle, The Little Russian MOBIBeautifully written war novel centered around a Jewish family in early 20th century Ukraine Reads a little bit like Gone with the Wind; the author seems to want her work to look like the WWI version of that classic and it works well Parts dragged a bit especially because it's heavy on the narrative and light on dialogue but overall it's interesting and devastating Not among the best books I've read this year or on my list of favorites but certainly a very good read
