I am thoroughly enjoying this.

 

I hate Bazarov though [I suspect we’re supposed to] and the following quote is a good example of why.

 

‘…moral diseases come from bad education, from all the nonsense people’s heads are stuffed with from childhood up, from the defective state of society; in short, reform society, and there will be no diseases.’

 

 

The young men have hared off to town and then to a country house where they meet a couple of nice women. Of course, nobody can be happy.

I have been feeling melancholic this month and the Russians do melancholy perfectly. I jokingly tell my wife that sometimes I can’t be happy unless I’m miserable. Maybe I have a stowaway russian soul 😀
