    When I read this in my early twenties it went straight into my top ten favourite novels All the ravishing set pieces of snow, the high adventure of the long train journeys through spectacular landscapes and Yuri and Lara as the romantically bound orphans of the storm was irresistible to my romantic young imagination On top of that, as you d expect from a

    I sometimes stroke my copy of Doctor Zhivago gently I doubt I will find time to reread it soon, but it is one of those books I like to think I will read again, some day, even though it is written into my heart already, and has stayed there firmly ever since it first entered it decades ago Is it better than any other of the masterpieces of world literature Probably n

    This is a timeless masterpiece While many readers are going to love this book, I think others will find themselves bogged down by its many details Certainly those readers who enjoy primarily plot driven novels are going to be frustrated by the dreamy Doctor Zhivago.
