Marry, Date or Dump: Dr. Zhivago, Bazarov, & Count Vronksy

ra3

I’ve started completing my first bookish resolution of 2014 by cracking open Anna Karenina, and although I am definitely struggling with the whole patronymic thing I am in a very Russian mood. So today I’ve given you three of my favorite heroes from Russian literature to marry, date, or dump. I’ve chosen Dr. Zhivago, Bazarov from Fathers and Sons, and Count Vronksy from Anna Karenina. However, if you want to substitute with your favorite Russian characters, be my guest! I’m excited to see who you choose in the comments.

  1. Marry Zhivago – if he truly loved me otherwise he might be unfaithful
    Date Bazarov – interesting but not marriage material
    Dump Vronsky

  2. I need to read these books. But I find the discussion fascinating. I saw the movie Dr. Zhivago. I don’t know why I haven’t read it. Will add these to my list.

  3. I have to get back to you after reading Anna Karenina; my initial thoughts are marry Zhivago and dump Bazarov. He’s my favorite male literary character but is best left in the book. Poet > Biologist
