    • Another whim to satisfy a task in this season's challenge, though I had not heard of it before. I rarely do that, finding more books than I can read that I already have on my shelves. I knew nothing about it beforehand. (I did not even realize it is a play, which I rarely read!) But I was intrigued, and I'm not sorry to have picked this up.It has an introduction, which was very helpful. It is a revelation of the old-fashioned Muscovite life from the inside, and Ostrovsky thereby brings us in clo [...]


    • I think this would be wonderful to watch. And actually, I am confused that it hasn't yet been adapted by Hollywood - it is clean in its presentation. I can almost feel a film student in LA picking it up and getting excited: THIS IS HOW I CAN MAKE MY MILLIONS. With Keira Knightley as Katya, of course. Maybe Judi Dench as Kabanikha. Tikhonm. You know, I think Alexander Skarsgard could pull him off, based on the versatility he showed in What Maisie Knew.Where was I.Okay. You can also feel the Bard [...]


    • As in other European plays I have read since my university career, I found the beginning of "Thunder" (the translation of my copy) a bit dreary, reminiscent of "Waiting for Godot"-dreary. It was several months -- with the stack of papers carelessly discarded under my bedside table -- that I finally picked it up to complete my reading of it with the view of finishing it and recycling the papers. I became engaged by the end of Act III, and after the last line of Act V, I felt the impact that trage [...]


    • Great story, obvious foreshadowing so much so that it makes you think it actually might not happen, but then of course it does. And no I don't mean the storm, that is obviously gonna happen. Hit kinda close to home on the spousal-matronal relations, but it's nice to get an idea of what it could have been like or at least see the ways that I know it wasn't and be thankful for that.


    • Who would have guessed a wealthy merchant and old widow could be so evil? They torment the people around them because they can. They have the money, power, and sadistic taste for it. The patriarch gets high on verbal abuse and violence, the matriarch with emotial and social manipulation. Together, they make the lives of their wards a living hell.



    • I liked the book. Third grade would like it. It is similar to bio books because it is bio. You learn about storms.


    • For me the central character of this play is Kabanova, not Katerina. Kabanova represents an entire culture, entire layer of population, and indeed some parts of the play point to the fact that she is not alone. She is deeply religious, as she thinks; she takes pride in multitude of her prayers, she believes she is a moralist and a custodian of the right ways, yet her true reality is satanic, poisonous, deadly to anyone around her. Ostrovsky shows a class of people who have drowned in the darknes [...]

    • فيها تركيبة كده محسوسة أكثر منها موصوفة , فكرة معيارية كون أسبقية التقدم فى السن دليل على حسن التصرف والفهم أو تقدير الأمور أو تحكم محددات الزمن الراحل بالزمن القادم بحكم التجربة وسبق الإختبار ,, كل هذا لا يُنفى فى مطلقه ولكنه على إطلاقه أيضا غير صحيح لكل زمن تجربة يجب أن تكون [...]


    • Ничем меня не зацепила эта пьеса. Катерина - бесхарактерная глупая девушка, хотя, может, такое поведение было нормальным в то время. Это произведение могло понравиться читателю во времена Островского, но мне оно совершенно непонятно.


    • Яркая, живая и пугающая бытовая драма. Не могла не думать о том, насколько Катерина на самом деле плоть от плоти этого мира и как мало ей надо было для счастья (и насколько она, по сути, ничего не могла сделать кроме того, что сделала: Борис мог что-то менять, Тихон мог, она - нет) [...]


    • Я всегда помнила «Грозу», как одно из моих любимх произведений из школьной программы. К сожалению, мнение изменилось после того, как я ее перечитала в 25. Перечитаю в 35 посмотрим, нет ли закономерности.





    • 3 из 5. Ничего не ожидала от данной пьесы и тем лучше. К сожалению, не понравился ни один персонаж, ну может Варвара только.
