ImperfectCJ Good to hear about someone else who doesn't do well with salmon. It's made me ill for years, but I keep trying it thinking I'm making it up because no one else seems to have a problem with it. 1mo

Hello friends! I‘ve been wanting to read The Master and Margarita for awhile and had picked this version up at a Half Price for a few dollars. However, I would like to read the best possible English translation. I also want to read the complete version. I like detail, but also would like it to read as close to the original as possible. Internet searches on Reddit have been helpful, but I wanted to ask the Litsy community, which version is best?

Palimpsest Hey friends, still want a recommendation on what is the best complete English translation? Thank you! (edited) 1mo

I can‘t find my copy of this book with Behemoth, a #blackcat on the cover, because I think I may have mailed it off to a Litten after I finally finished the book. Needless to say, I didn‘t love it, but I did finish it.

“The Master and Margarita” by Mikhail Bulgakov is another reminder that we are all, in the words of George Eliot, “struggling, erring human creatures.” I loved the book and learned a lot about Soviet Russia thanks to the detailed notes sprinkled throughout.

Mehso-so

I‘m usually not one for super complex story lines so two of the three story lines kind of went over my head. I know what happened but it took me until he very end to understand why these three seemingly random plots were happening in one book. Especially when the third, the only one I really understood completely, didn‘t start until part two! But I‘m a hopeless romantic so that‘s why I understood Margarita‘s story line better than the other two.

One of the first (maybe the first) magic realism novels in Russian literature. Forbidden to print for decades, it was first published in Russian language in 90‘s, and immediately became a cult novel. I‘m reading it second time, after 20 years, and it reads differently. I think I feel Master‘s anguish more, and Margarita‘s terrible loneliness. But will see.. Only half way through.

I‘m going to be honest—nothing about the synopsis of this book makes me want to read it. I don‘t think I‘d enjoy it in the slightest. But the cover makes me wish I would.

Emilymdxn I loved the book but agree it‘s not the most accessible book - you have to like dark weird very dense books. There‘s a really really great play adaptation which I saw in London, if you like the aesthetic but don‘t wanna read it I really recommend looking out for a production of the play! 10mo

This one has been in my #MtTBR for almost a decade, so I was excited to dust it off for this month‘s #ReadAroundTheWorld in #Russia. But I have to admit that I think my hopes were too high for this... while I loved some parts, and the translation felt smooth, I guess I just expected something else... I think it would be a great read for a discussion group though! @JenP

Velvetfur I loooove The Master and Margarita! Apparently it was made into a play a good few years ago and had a tiny run of just a few days here in London, but I'd only just discovered the book then so didn't know what it was so didn't go. After reading it, I wished I'd have read it much earlier and then gone to see the play, gah! 12mo

I‘m giving this a pick, because it is somewhere between 3 and 4 stars for me, and I did really enjoy its weirdness! But... I could have done without the Pontius Pilate chapters, and I would have loved a bit more focus on Margarita. In spite of this, I still had a lot of fun while reading in, and Bulgakov is one of the more readable Russian writers, once you get into his style 👍

I loved this wild ride of a novel. My advice, save analysis for after you finish, don‘t worry about allegory or symbolism, just read it. All will become clear; if not, then you can Google for answers. But enjoy the crazy story for itself. (And you‘ll have to finish it to understand the photo. 😉 )
