Read full description of the books The Open Book:I have always enjoyed the books of Kaverin. My Russian background and my childhood make me enjoy these books and especially the most famous one, "The Two Captains". Kaverin's books are about the ideals that are forever in every culture and country -- honesty, honor, trust, truth, and love. "The open book" is one of these books. Although it may remind you (stilistically and plot-wise) of the famous "Two Captains", it does have its own style and attraction. After reading this book, you will see the world of Soviet Russia long gone, but not the world we all know it was -- cruel and full of the Communism despotism. We see the world of idealistic young people who are trying to change the world for the better -- world of happy people who are never sick. The plot is concentrated about the life of microbiologists and doctors... But somehow, this book reminds me of "Gone with the Wind"... The world that is gone...
Amazon Customer's Review
Read information about the authorVeniamin Alexandrovich Kaverin (Russian: Вениамин Александрович Каверин; real name - Вениамин Александрович Зильбер, or Veniamin Alexandrovich Zilber) (April 19, 1902 in Pskov – May 2, 1989 in Moscow) was a Soviet writer associated with the early 1920s movement of the Serapion Brothers. The immunologist Lev Zilber was his older brother, and the critic Yury Tynyanov was his brother-in-law.
During the WWII evacuation in Yaroslavl, Kaverin completed his best-known novel, The Two Captains (1938-44), which colourfully recounts the adventures of Russian polar explorers before and after the Revolution. The book, awarded the Stalin Prize in 1946, was reissued 42 times in 25 years and was adapted for the screen twice, in 1955 and 1976. In 1966, Kaverin published a revised version of his 1929 study of Osip Senkovsky, Baron Brambeus. Later, he worked on his reminiscences about the literary milieu of the 1920s, which contained passages highly critical of Soviet policies in literature.
As The Moscow News commented on his centenary, "Kaverin showed that even under the worst of conditions it is possible to retain one's human qualities and decency. His example is a reproach to so many other Soviet writers who sold their souls to the regime and committed reprehensible public acts".
