Journal Entry 1 by wingBoekentrolwing from Leeuwarden, Fryslân (Friesland) Netherlands on Wednesday, October 12, 2011
"Conrad deftly depicts both the political turmoil in Russia in 1911 and its psychological repercussions in this novel about a student unwittingly caught in revolutionary intrigue. Attending St. Petersburg University, and industriously preparing himself for a career in the czarist bureaucracy, Razumov suddenly finds himself enmeshed in a secret plot."

Uit een van de twee dozen van Moem. Beetje laat geregistreed, maar het waren er ook zoveel!

Finally I got to reading this book. It was interesting, but a bit different than what I expected after reading the short contents. It was less actual involvement of Razumov. My overactive imagination combined with the many spy novels I've read may be the cause of that :-)

I liked the change I noticed, from a student that's quiet, doing his best to fit in, to that if more an observer, the one who looks on everything and all with western eyes.
