SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT IT –> ‘Mother’ is considered a turning-point in the history of Russian literature. In the words of perhaps the greatest thinker and political figure of the 20th century, Vladimir Lenin, ?It is a book of the utmost importance; many workers, who have joined the revolutionary movement impulsively, without properly revolutionary movement impulsively, without properly understanding why, will begin to comprehend after reading Mother?.
Mother has the distinction of being the only major Russian literary work written in the USA, being written when the author was in exile there in 1906. It is a tale of the purity of the revolutionary soul opposed to the infinitely corrupt and historically wrong soul of the capitalist oppressor.

It flows mostly very smoothly and is a easy read for a Russian novel.
