    1. 3.5 stars. A bit of a disappointing conclusion to Tolstoy’s trilogy, if only because the protagonist, Nikolai, is growing into a rather annoying young man. His precocious boyhood traits are now becoming manifest as haughtiness. Like Rousseau, Tolstoy presents his autobiographical character in all his flaws, which almost turned me off by the end of the trilogy. The novel begins where Boyhood left off, as Nikolai starts the process of entering the university and becoming a young man. Tolstoy pro [...]


    2. First sentence: "I have said that my friendship with Dimitri opened up for me a new view of my life and of its aim and relations."P. 99: "Yet so inexhaustible is that store of old maid's love that, despite the numbers of individuals so selected, there still remains an abundant surplus of affection which they lavish upon all by whom they are surrounded - upon alll, good or bad, whom they may chance to meet in their daily life."Last sentence: "Kow long that moral impulse lasted, what it consisted [...]


    3. Tolstoy's plain prose and unstinting honesty are perfect for autobiography, so I was expecting a lot from Youth and wasn't disappointed, despite the fact that nothing in the least dramatic happened to him over the short period covered.Like all of us at that time in life, he takes exams, becomes uncomfortably self-conscious, effects various poses, and falls in love on an almost daily basis.He makes no secret of the fact that he behaved condescendingly to his sister, invented falsehoods in order t [...]


    4. Последняя книга отчасти автобиографической трилогии закончена во всё том же прекрасном литературном стиле который был задан ещё с первой части. Для меня она была скорее всего наиболее интересней. Здесь не только можно найти множество мыслей и размышлений, которые облада [...]


    5. Þessi var nú leiðinlegust af þríleiknum um unga yfirstéttardrenginn. Aðeins og langdregin á köflum. Hann er 16-17 ára og að byrja í háskóla. Kennararnir eru heimskir, námsefnið fyrir neðan virðingu hans og það er miklu meira gaman á fylleríi að ræða heimspekileg málefni við vinina. Alveg eins og 17 ára strákur í Kópavogi núna, þó þessi bók hafi verið skrifuð 1850 af yfirstéttarmanni í Rússlandi. Frábært.
