    One thought on “Angst”

    1. This is another big-ass Russian novel, with close to 700 pages and a huge cast of characters spread across a good chunk of the old Soviet Union, from Siberia to Moscow to Kaliningrad. It is the second novel of a trilogy, the first entitled Children of the Arbat, which I read in 2008 not even knowing it was part of a trilogy. Sequel or not, Fear is so good that I plan to move on to the third novel, Dust and Ashes, some time in the coming year.Anataly Rybakov took his chances writing these works d [...]

    2. Втората книга от трилогията на Рибаков за децата на Арбат Всъщност, тъй като я четох на руски се оказа ,че първата част на " Страх" съдържа голяма част от онова, което при нас е издадено като " Трийсет и пета и други години", та като я започнах отидох почти на средата. Четох я в е [...]

    3. The Arbat Saga continues and , together with greats such as Arthur Koestlers 'A Darkness At Noon' Vassily Grossmans 'Forever Flowing'and the works of Solzhenitsyn ,the Orwellian terror of the Stalin years in the Soviet Union been captured so accurately. The true characters of some of the people who we met in Children of The Arbat are revealed. Sasha Pankratov becomes a wiser,more cynical man who finally realises the nature of the Communist society in Russia. Varya Ivanova blooms into a remarkabl [...]

    4. As the continuation of Children of the Arbat, Fear dives right into the heart of the Great Terror in the Soviet Union. I didn't however, think that it was as good, or even had the same sense of urgency as Children of the Arbat. I was annoyed at the focus on Stalin as the second main character next to Sasha, and I felt that the stories and fates of characters that we spent a lot of time getting to know in Children of the Arbat got sidelined as a result, and you learn developments about some of th [...]

    5. Читать всю трилогию. Рекомендуется кто интерисуется историей ссср. Читается очнь легко, прочел на одном дыхании в отпуске. Видно что автор очень хорошо прочувствовал описываемый период. Изложение последовательное. Культ личности Сталина и всего полит. аппарата того време [...]

    6. Вторая часть трилогии "Дети Арбата" повествует о времени "расцвета" сталиских репрессий в Советском Союзе в 1936-1939 годах. В отличие от первой книги, где можно было прочитать о надеждах и идеалах главных героев, в этой книге - лишь мрачные реалии той эпохи. Автор великолепно оп [...]

    7. Continuing the story of Children of the Arbat, Fear is well named. Excellent exploration of trying to navigate a constantly shifting political landscape. Rybakov did an amazing job of portraying the purges and explaining how the stage was set for a power vacuum as Stalin entered the Second World War. Again, he goes inside Stalin's mind for some of the story, and again it is an icky place to be. Every once in a while, the story would bog down, which is what kept it from being a five star read.

    8. Stalins pursuit of a Party cleansing is under way and woe betide those who, through bad timing or bad placement, get "caught", arrested, tried, and either shot or sent to the camps. All this at the same time the original group of students are growing up into their own. Yuri as NKVD, Sasha post-exile, Varya afar, Vadim navigating a world of art through state oppression. How these stories are weaved through with the peaking paranoia of Stalin is a feat and Rybakov wrote with such vividness that it [...]

    9. To be clear, I read the English translation, Fear, which is the second installment in Rybakov's Arbat trilogy. It's much darker than the first installment, as the early 30s slide into the heart of the purges and uncertainty of the years right before WWII. As with the first installment, the getting inside of Stalin's head was a distraction for me, and the characters seem thinner and more archetypal than in the first novel (even knowing their backgrounds). Still, however, a Russian novel in the hi [...]

    10. Raamat, millest esimese poole lugesin umbes aastal 1989 või nii ja teise poole aastal 2014. Raamat ise on räigelt hea, kui suht sünge isikukultuse, kõikjal valitseva hirmu ja karmi terrorirežiimi kohta võib hea üldse öelda. Tegelased on samad, kes "Arbati lasteski", tegevus aga keerleb ümber järjest karmimaks mineva repressioonide ja lavastatud kohtuprotsesside, puhastuste, vangiheitmiste ja mahalaskmiste ratta.Karm lugemine. Karm aga väga hea.

    11. I fell for these characters when reading Children of the Arbat and was interested to see what befell them next. Rybakov does a great job of creating the sense of justified paranoia and I felt like I better understood the Soviet psyche after reading this book. I do wish it had ended less like part of a series, though.

    12. Attention chef d'œuvre. Ou presque. Du niveau de "La Saga Moscovite" d'Axionov. C'est dire. Le tome deux des Enfants de l'Arbat. Extraordinaire roman qui raconte la Grande Terreur comme personne ne l'avait jamais fait. A lire absolument. Très grand livre russe. Vite lisons le tome 3, dernier tome de la saga.

    13. Perhaps I have just read too many biographies of Stalin and accounts of life inRussia during the purges?I found the pace of art 2 of this trilogy was a bit slow -I guess as it is partly autobiographical it may reflect a long & slow moving art of Rybakov's life

    14. Continuing the saga of Sasha Pankratov, the Russian student unjustly arrested in 1934, this novel interweaves his exile in Siberia and eventual return to the madness of Stalin's Great Purge with the effects of the reign of terror on his friends in the Arbat.

    15. Readability 6. Rating 6. Another book for Russian Civ. Tale of life during the beginning of Stalin's purges. Interesting and reasonably well-written. An almost unimaginable world.
