Kansyan from the Beautiful Lands

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I couldn’t help but think these two stories were rather pointless. It felt to me as if the writer was going to make a point or a plot at some point, but it sort of sizzled out before it could be made. Perhaps this was the aim, to show how many events will not have great, life changing impacts, but personally I thought it was rather odd.

The writing however was nice enough – as is usually the case with the 19th century Russian writers.
