    1. It s hard sometimes for a book or a movie to make me genuinely lol I was giggling so hard while reading Zolotoi Telenok, it deserves four, if not five stars just for that Ilf and Petrov are a very witty couple, and even though the narration and the language of their books seem light hearted, a lot of work has gone into making every little detail right And this book is full of quirky colorful little details of life and s in 1920s Russia I guess I m also really loving Russian authors for their ama [...]

    3. Part political satire, part madcap adventure, part giant pun fest, The Golden Calf had me laughing out loud by the end of the first page and hooked until the end of the last Gurevich and Anderson offer a complete translation of the novel unlike earlier editions that left out entire chapters as a labor of love they are not full time translators and their long hours and sometimes days spent researching and deliberating over single words or phrases certainly paid off, as they have accomplished a ra [...]



    4. Just like the first one in this series , the book was absolutely awesome In spite of the fact that it made me chuckle and even laugh out loud a few times, it is a very deep book that says a lot about human nature, the clash between collectivism and individualism, the evolution of the Soviet society, material wealth and so on The characters are great, especially as none of them can escape their nature, the story is very interesting and well constructed, I just wish there were books like this.


    5. A comic Russian novel It s possible The Golden Calf by Ilya Ilf and Evgeny Petrov is described as hilarious and raucous and I admit, I was skeptical The book was published in the early 1930s in the Soviet Union, first serialized over several years in a popular magazine Funny Maybe But I doubted that the humor would translate over eight decades to an English reader in the United States But it did This is a book that can be best described as a caper, featuring Ostap Bender, a larger than life con [...]

    9. Wonderful, funny and amazing this got by the censors in Russia in its time these two authors created one of the finest characters in Russian literature Ostep Bender.



    10. Satire at its finest, laugh out loud humor, madcap adventure and a real eye opener on the illusion that things actually change over time.


    11. Meraviglioso, ma anche triste un umorismo che sul finale vira tremendamente al Pirandelliano.Ritroviamo qui Ostap Bender, gi protagonista de Le dodici sedie, che tenta di sbarcare il lunario con ogni attivit possibile, purch elegantemente fuori dalla legalit La creativit di Ostap sembra infinita e la sua sicumera attira altri compagni di viaggio, improbabili quanto il nostro commodoro.Il vitello d oro un libro on the road che ci fa attraversare l Unione Sovietica da nord a sud e contemporaneamen [...]

    13. I m a fan of Ilf and Petrov They are a brilliant duo I love the half sarcastic, half ironic style, love the way they show a picture of the Soviet society of the NEP era I cannot say I love the characters in the sense of relating and looking up to them, but I can t but sympathize all of them Though the end of Bender s adventures was predictable taking into account, that the authors were Soviet journalist who just couldn t let The Great Combinator enjoy his 1 million in Rio , it was a bit of a pit [...]





    14. p.9 Near the white gate of the provincial citadel in Arbatov , two severe looking old ladies conversed in French, complaining about the Soviet regime and reminiscing about their beloved daughters He walked under the plywood arch with the freshly painted banner, Welcome to the 5th District Conference of Women and Girls, and found himself at the beginning of a long tree lined alley named Boulevard of Prodigies Now, he said with chagrin, this is no Rio de Janeiro, this is much worse p.19 Fake grand [...]



    15. Ultimately a satire on the plight of the poor millionaire in Soviet Russia what s a private citizen to do when only the collectives are allowed to spend their fortunes that follows the Captain, Ostap Bender, as he attempts to extract extort the million he needs to reach Rio de Janeiro from another who has quietly amassed capital under Communism.


    16. Funny, if heavy handed Ilf and Petrov have long been described to me as the master of soviet satire, but I can t help but feel that it all seemed a bit over the top Osip Bender is a great character, no matter if the overall satire didn t quite hit the mark for me I will say that the race scene where he is driving an old POS and pretends to be leading the race was hilarious


    17. Still some pretty good slapstick comedy I laughed I m sure most of the subtle humor went directly over my head, which is a shame since it seems as though the translators made an extra effort to preserve that subtlety I just don t know enough about Russian history to understand This was a fantastic translation, also.



    18. Ostap Bender heads a group of con men to wrest money from a lm underground Russian millionaire Why He wants to live in Rio.


    19. 90% of this book was hilarious The ending, however, seemed to fall into the realm of Soviet propaganda Oh well, had to pass the censors somehow
