Take Vladimir Sorokin's The Blizzard: A Novel could very well be set in the 19th century except for a cellphone at one point and a mention that Stalin happened a long time ago.The story has a dramatic start. Platon Ilich Garin is a physician traveling during a major blizzard with vaccinations against the Bolivian Black Plague, which has broken out i

    Метель E–pub READ Vladimir Sorokin ✓ 4 Free download characters Þ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Vladimir Sorokin A strange (in a good way) amalgam of traditional 19th century style Russian literature crossed with post apocalyptic SF. A doctor's struggle to deliver a vaccine to a remote village during a blizzard. Features tiny (and huge) horses, mind altering drugs and giants. What's not to like?

Whenever I review of foreign language work of speculative fiction I find myself including a statement reflecting my certainty that readers of the work in its original language Russian Spanish Estonian whatever have a fuller experience of its subtleties humor and imagery than I That statement usually comes towards the end of the review but with Vladimir Sorokin s The Blizzard I have decided to put it up front I feel certain that his Russian readers have a well as I saidIt helps to learn that Russian readers by the time reach adulthood have received a steady diet of lost in the snow narratives The motif appears in fiction verse and folklore and the stories almost always end poorly for their protagonists The Blizzard opens with Dr Garin who is desperate to find transportation for himself and his serum to the plague struck village of Delgoye learning that snow has shut down the railway It s a set up that will prompt Russian readers to think Here we go again The forested rural setting seems nineteenth century and the frantic Dr Garin with his pince nez and mustache steps out of a Chekov story That atmosphere continues when Dr Garin learns that Crouper the peasant who handles local bread deliveries may have horses and a sleigh available He approaches the man who does indeed have horse He has fifty of them This is a reasonable number since they are the size of partridges and they propel his sleigh by running inside a drum The doctor convinces Crouper to undertake the journey which in normal circumstances would take only a few hours The village will be saved from what we learn about this time is an outbreak of zombies caused by a virus brought back from Columbia The dead are tunneling through the village breaking into homes and infecting the living Dr Garin does not approve of foreign travelSorokin is one of the most popular contemporary novelists in Russia His work employs fantastic elements in narratives that range from traditional science fiction to the sort of weird environment he builds in The Blizzard It is never clear if he has set this tale in an alternate nineteenth century or some future that has devolved into a combination of new technology crippled by a collapsed infrastructure Thanks to another review I learned that there are internal clues that place the story in our own present day One development running throughout the story is the twin phenomena of biological miniaturization and gigantism Crouper s tiny horses are distantly related to horses the size of small apartment blocks These are used to haul trains that no longer have a power source On their journey Garin and Crouper take refuge in the home of a miller the size of a samovar Garin has a sexual encounter with his full sized and delectable wife One of the men s many road accidents occurs when a runner of their sleigh crashes into and breaks off in the nostril of a dead giant The details of all this are enjoyable and expertly drawn even if their import remains vague Dr Garin becomes increasingly unsympathetic his humanitarian zeal a cover for his temper condescension and poor impulse control My sympathies all went to Crouper and his tender concern for his hard working horses You don t have to be Russian to guess that this trip into the snow will end badly But again I find myself wondering if a Russian reader finds all this than a mildly entertaining curiosity

A story translated from the Russian that is part magical realism and part science fiction a blend of old Russia and a post apocalyptic futuristic Russia Almost all of the action takes place in a Dr Zhivago type sleigh ride in a blinding week long blizzard across the frozen Russian landscape A doctor carrying vaccine has hired a sled driver to get him to a remote village where the people have been struck by a plague The harder the doctor tries to reach the village the obstacles he encounters as in one of those running nightmares where you can never reach your destination And oh yes I forgot to mention that the village people are suffering from the Bolivian plague that turns them into Zombies Not goodimage There s a shortage of gasoline Fortunately genetic bioengineering has done its magic and the sleigh s motor think snowmobile is powered by 50 miniature horses propelling a drive belt under the hood Genetic manipulation has also bred giant and miniature humans The giant people 6 meters tall are hired to do things like clear forests by ripping out trees by hand A tavern owner they encounter on their journey is a miniature man about as tall as a wine bottle married to a normal sized woman We have digital clocks but no phones or internet In the travels of the doctor and his driver they come across a tent city populated by Kazakh people aka Vitaminders The Kazakhs erect their tents in a few minutes by using a substance sueezed out of a tube of toothpaste that they water and then in a few minutes it grows into a felt like substance The Vitaminders make their living selling an LSD type drug The doctor takes advantage of the drug just as he did the tavern owner s wife In his hallucinogenic drugged state the doctor has nightmarish dreams where he reflects on all the bad things he did in his life and tries to justify himself to a village tribunal that has condemned him to a gruesome death I m not a science fiction fan but the book kept my attention with its inventiveness and my wondering exactly what is going on and what s coming next On the other hand I didn t uite get the point of it all Sorokin is a post modern Russian writer he has been writing since the 1980 s and his early work had been banned under the old Soviet regime But now he is banging out a book a year and has published about 15 novels since then photo from blogeurekatentcom
