    1. This is the poignant tale of a boy who in church feels sympathy for the Devil, crying over the narrow chinned and sharp bearded figurine of satan they have ( for some curious reason) in his boyhood church, and grows up to become a police informer and agent provocateur.It is a sad tale and tells of a useless life, yet is oddly sympathetic and tender toward its foolish principal character who by virtue of his profession is cut off from solidarity and genuine closeness with others


    2. Free download available at Project Gutenberg.From LibraThing:Maxim Gorky was a Russian proponent of the naturalist approach to fiction. He introduced the peasant and workingman as hero and some of his popularity is undoubtedly due to this. Unlike Dostoevsky who saw evil in metaphysical terms, Gorky was an advocate of class conflict as the source of evil. His materialism stemmed from Marxist ideology and would lead him to join with Lenin and the Bolsheviks. This novel was written before that in 1 [...]


    3. As is common in a lot of Russian literature, there is not a whole lot of light or happiness in Life of a Useless Man. There is a lot of despair, suffering, personal and social upheaval and catastrophe, and tragic, violent death. It's a lovely example of tragic Russian literature, and what can I say, I love Russian lit!Life of a Useless Man does unfold a little slowly, and lots of people walk into and out of Yevsey' s life, so it can be a a challenge to keep track of all that's going on. Still, t [...]


    4. The story of a man, full of fears, that never found the courage to face them. Suffering from tormenting thoughts, but also by an invincible cowardice, lives his life as a spectator, letting himself being dragged by events, which lead him to end up as a spy, an informer for the shake of the Czar. Non- educated, mentally deficient, self-ignorant, tries to please anybody that looks influential and powerful. Although it seems he is dreaming and believes in a better life, he never stands up for it, h [...]



    5. A sharp insight into the world of Russian spies during the Tsar's rule, the book delves into the different personas that make up the Security Department of the police during those turbulent times. The first half of the book defines and builds up the character of Yevsey Klimkov the protagonist who almost till the end of the book seems to be crawling in fright all over the place due to a severe case of low self esteem.The latter half of the book depicts the birth of civil unrest and birth of the R [...]


    6. A terrific novel, a great channeling of the spirit of a time. 1905, the events prior to the Russian Revolution of 1917 with all its magic, its liberation, its errors and horrors. Of course Gorky is a friend of communism and this leaks through this early novel of his on many occasions. But the writer is much more than that, and this no mere ideological book: It is an amasing study of the human mind and psyche, both of the individual and the collective, as bold and honest as anything I've ever rea [...]

    8. this book is about a loser, that havent any courage to faced his world. yet he comes spies, not by his effort but by his fate. his silentness locked him into his miserable world and in the end death is his only choice. cant imagine how can a man keep silent in front of his world and make war with himself. but still this book is worth to read. like it :D


    9. Interesante historia sobre un joven perdido. Pero perdido en cuanto a la vida. Va y viene según la corriente, carece de un carácter que le haga decidir por sí mismo. En un entorno complicado, durante el derrocamiento de los zares, vive guiado por los demás.



    10. Very engaging and will written too so that I never felt like putting it down. That said a basic understanding of the political circumstance at that time period would help. No background is included, but I did some own self studies and it helped me understand the chaotic contradictory period.


    11. Karena diterjemahkan dengan tutur kata yang terlalu rumit dan kurang indah, aku tidak bisa menikmati membaca cerita yang sebenarnya sangat cocok dengan cara berpikirku ini. Aku bisa menangkap apa-apa yang dipikirkan dan dirasakan si tokoh utama. Tapi karena tidak bisa menikmati bahasa penerjemahannya, aku lelah, skimming.


    12. This story was written soon after the Russian October revolution of 1905 (a prelude to the 1917 one) by Gorky being a witness to the events and subsequently arrested. The style is a rather accessible and uncomplicated or overly lengthy – there are few characters and this is a Russian novel where the names, which I always have difficulty with (diminutives, family, patrimony etc), were not so evident. The book was banned by the Tsar in Russia until 1917.The story tells the life of loner and orph [...]


    13. Çarlığın son döneminin anlatıldığı sürprizlerle dolu bir roman. Ürkek ve yararsız bir adamın hikayesi özelinde Rusya'da meşruti monarşiye geçiş sancılarını resmediyor. 1905 hareketlerinden kısa bir süre sonra yazılmış. Gorki de yeni rejim tarafından en çok sevilen kalemlerden biri olmuş zaten.


    14. Buku ini benar-benar menunjukkan aliran realisme yang dibawa oleh seorang Gorki. menceritakan seorang anak desa bernama Yevsey yang merantau ke kota dengan pimpinan yang begitu otoriter bernama kaisar Czar. Yevsey pun merasakan ada yang salah dengan negara itu, tapi untuk hidup dia akhirnya bekerja pada departemen pertahanan sebagai seorang mata-mata yang bertugas memata-matai para pemberontak. akhir cerita dari buku ini adalah kegelisahan Yevsey yang ingin ikut dalam perkumpulan para pemberonta [...]


    15. Which loneliness is better? The the one stemming from the choices that built you into a unique individual? Or a loneliness that resulted even when you let others make choices in your behalf? Or a loneliness caused exactly because others make the choices on your behalf, without you having a say? The book deals with the last version, but the reasons for the main character, Yevsey Klimkov's being or becoming a passive, incapacitated sufferer remain oblique.


    16. Since the days of the Czar to the present day, it seems to me that the Russian people keep getting squeezed. Would Yevsey have had a better chance these days? I also wonder what Gorky would think about Russia these days. I usually come away from such books feeling nothing but resignation. Anyone else?


    17. Oh, useless man! This is good character development in that you begin the book feeling sorry for a kid, and slowly you begin to develope a commie-style antipathy for this kid (young adult) who doesn't seem to believe in anyone or anything but ease. Oh, ease! Who knows what life we should all lead - one of pursuing comfort or truth - but I stopped reading this tale about halfway through.


    18. Excelente retrato da Rússia na véspera da Revolução Socialista de 1905, na perspetiva dos serviços de espionagem do Czar. De fundo temos sempre o ideal Socialista como saída para todas as desigualdades. Hoje sabemos que tudo isso correu mal, mas não deixa de ser fascinante este ideal utópico. A ler.




    19. i like the gloomy russians, but ye be warned. this book starts with a pathetic character & leaves him, by the end of the book, more miserable & pathetic than he started (hence the book's title).





    20. Gostei bastante do estilo do Autor, mas falta algum objetivo mais claro na história. Alguns outros personagens poderiam ter sido mais aprofundados também, ao invés de centrar só em um.
