1. War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy (1869)
It is a four-volume epic that must come on top of your list. In fact, almost every Russian Child had to paddle through it in school. And, if you truly want to get to know Russia, then you cannot skip this masterpiece.
Tolstoy tackles every subject wisely. From love to death, you see everything. But the real beauty lies in understanding the Russian culture. All of it actually, including the vices. There are more than 30 important characters in this book and believe me, this one will stay with you forever.
2. The Brothers Karamazov, Fyodor Dostoevsky (1879)
Fyodor Dostoevsky’s last novel and definitely one of the greatest. The plot revolves around Fyodor Karamazov, who is killed by one of his own children. It might take time for you to completely comprehend the layers and
subtlety used. It is a story of lust and murder, but one can draw parallels between Russia, the problems it faced, Christianity, etc. Once you finish it, you will be left with a lot of questions and thoughts.
3. Eugene Onegin, Alexander Pushkin (1833)
This book depicts the capabilities of the very famous Russian Poet, Alexander Pushkin. It is a novel in verse, about man named Onegin. The protagonist is heartless and goes on destroying the lives of others, where finally he has nothing.
Although it sounds dark, there is humour present in his adventures and mishaps. You will occasionally find yourself chuckling and believe me when I say this, you will thoroughly enjoy this book.
4. Anna Karenina, Leo Tolstoy (1873)
Another one by Tolstoy, this one revolves around three couples and their romantic and political involvements. The opening line of this novel about happy and unhappy families is one of the most famous opening lines in literature.
“Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”
This book is complicated but pulls your heartstrings. Explore it and you will not regret it.
5. The Cherry Orchard, Anton Chekhov (1904)
Chekhov could always bring tears or make you laugh with his writing. His heroes are generally narrow-minded and simply inadequate, but that’s the beauty about them. That’s what made them easier to love because they were not larger than life, someone you couldn’t connect to.
This is a story about a poor yet humble family, who are not able to make ends meet. Therefore, they decide to part ways with their cherry orchard for a substantial sum in order to not lose their entire estate. But goodbyes are never easy, are they?
