I love books. One week ago Toothfairy wrote an interesting and funny post about books. I laughed when Toothfairy told, that pink bubblegum drama is not for her and Harry Potter is not her cup of tea. Harry Potter and pink bubblegum drama is not for me either, but I’m happy if my book cover is pink;)
Toothfairy asked: What is your book genre?
I have read almost anything, but my favorites are classic books in what ever genre. I love writers like Charles Dickens, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Hermann Hesse, Mikhail Bulgakov and so on.
The Master and Margarita (Мастер и Маргарита) is a famous novel by Mikhail Bulgakov (Михаил Булгаков), who was a Soviet Russian novelist. The genre of The Master and Margarita is satire, which is near fantasy. I usually love fantasy but hate it in books. I love pink stuff but I don’t like to read pink bubblegum drama. But quality pink drama or romance is totally another story. Those who love pink or write a pink blog or a fashion blog can love serious literature. Some people think that we don’t have brains:D
I mostly love to read realistic books. The Master and Margarita is even more than realism, much harder than realism but still sensitive and pink. The Master and Margarita is split into three different stories. There are events in Moscow, including the adventures of satanic visitors, events concerning the crucifixion of Yeshua Ha-Notsri or Jesus Christ, in first-century Yershalaim, and the love story of the Master and Margarita.
I have The Master and Margarita book, a Finnish translation on my bookshelf. I have read The Master and Margarita only in Finnish. The Finnish translation is called “Saatana saapuu Moskovaan” (Satan arrives to Moscow). This name is very descriptive. I hope that I some day could read Мастер и Маргарита in Russian.
The Master and Margarita is a different book each time it is opened. The Times of London has called The Master and Margarita one of the masterpieces of the 20th century. For me The Master and Margarita is an important book. I love serious humor.
