This week my teaser is from Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak. Technically I'm reading it for school, but since it's fiction and I've posted teasers from Russian novels before, I thought it would be fine for this post. I like the book so far; I don't love it, but it takes place in an interesting point in Russian history, right when the revolutions are taking place from the early 1900s through WWII.
The clay huts and geese in the settlement around the station, all scattered with spat-out hunks of sunflower seeds, sat white and frightened under the immobile gaze of the black, menacing sky.
Bordering the station building was a wide clearing that stretched far to both sides. The grass on it was trampled down, and it was entirely covered by an immense crowd of people, who had spent weeks waiting for trains in the various directions each needed.
Have you read Doctor Zhivago? What are you reading now?
