This quality discussion is happening in the "Check in" thread and not where the majority of people looking for discussion about this book will see it. If there was an easy way for me to move these posts over to a new or different thread I would. Hmmm

All I can do is suggest that you guys talk amongst yourselves and agree to create a new thread within this forum and carry the conversation there so that newcomers will see the thread title and possibly enter the discussion. They may never click on a thread with the title: Check in here if you plan to join the discussion of "The Master and Margarita"

Then again if you like it in this cold, dark lonely thread... :lol:

Thanks Chris.

There are different ways people find discussions. This appears in the sidebar list of most recent comments, and in the location that I mostly use, "View Active Topics".

As well, if people go to the Master and Margarita forum, they will see the number of replies and views.

This thread has 1956 views and 14 replies, well above any other thread in the forum, except, inexplicably, Chapter 13, Enter the Hero, which despite only one reply has more than 2000 views. Must be those Russian spybots.

Loved that book. Seems to sag and confuse in the middle like all the Russian books I seem to read but very charming. Gogol is still my favorite.

Hey Pres, I gave my copy back to my aunty at my dad's funeral two weeks ago, and will have to put the hard word on a friend who I lent a spare copy to, as I am just getting up to the totally craziest bit, where Margarita turns into an invisible witch and wreaks bitter revenge on the corrupt literatchik who stopped The Master/Bulgakov from publishing his book about Jesus. Right in the middle, and more bounce than sag. Sorting my library, have just rediscovered a gem, Bulgakov's Manuscripts Don't Burn, buried in detrital rubble.

Hey Chris.

Sorry to hear about that Tulip. Just going off my impression from over 10 years ago regarding the book. It was a fun read, though. The mischief was a joy. I should reread.

I haven't been to this thread in a while. Sorry if I threw it off track. Sorry also to read about your father, Robert. My condolences to you and your family.
