What the community says about The Master and Margarita

  • Ralph Walker

    "I enjoy fiction books but this one seems a bit too campy. It's also too closely written like non-fiction, which I don't enjoy often."

    "This is a unique book, it isn't great or wonderful, but the story of its creation is actually somewhat inspiring. It is lucky that we did finally see this publish, despite the controversy. It is a good, but not great and well worth reading once or twice."

    "I had a friend asking me got advice on one of the best recommended books by David Bowie. I helped them find the selections and we ended up going with The Master and Margarita based on the name alone."

    "As an allegory, The Master and Margarita stands apart from much of the literature written during this time period. In this exposition, Bulgakov takes us inside the mind of the characters, and let's us experience the zeitgeist of Moscow in the 1930's. A true samizdat, the book was a cultural touchstone to those living under Stalin's regime, and a most important expression of human creativity."

    "This novel tosses wildly between the real, a fantasy, and a deeper dive into Christianity and the human condition as a whole. I didn't like it, but I understand what makes it a worthwhile literary venture. Particularly, I enjoyed the witch character. It wasn't for me, but I'd recommend it anyway."

    "The book had a lot more depth than I expected. It depicted soviet society very well."

    "The Master and Margarita is an incredible satire. The story is definitely a great history lesson about the Soviet culture and life in the 1930's. Additionally the title rolls of the tongue so nicely with the double Ms"

    "This book provides and insight into the Soviet Union in the 1930's. It will give you a perspective of the lives of people under Stalin's opression."

    "The Master and Margarita is a good magical realism novels "

    "A friend gave me this book to read. I found it to be really weird and different. It does have some comedic parts that will have you smiling. But it has lots of serious tragic events too. Books about Satan, Demons and witches just do not appeal to me. "
