Written in Russian and translated to English. loses something in translation. Whereas I probably read Sholokhovs And Quiet Flows the Don three or four times, I have read The Don flows Home to The Sea only once. It is a dark, nihilistic and foreboding novel.

Written in Russian and translated to English. Picking up where volume one leads off, it follows the Russian Civil War to its conclusion in orgy of violence, death and destruction. It is still a great novel. Once again we follow the Prokoffievich family as it tries to survive in the chaos of war.

Mikhail Aleksandrovich Sholokhov. Mikhail Sholokhov's groundbreaking epic novel gives a sweeping depiction of Russian life and culture in the early 20th century. In the same vein as War and Peace, by Leo Tolstoy, And Quiet Flows the Don gives readers a glimpse into many aspects of Russian culture, and the choices a country makes when faced with war and destruction. Although each is complete in itself, the two books are often referred to under the title The Silent Don.

A group of Cassacks find themselves torn between loyalty to their culture and the ideals of the ongoing Russian Revolution.

Along with 2 other volumes , makes together the faimous novel “ So slow flows the river Don “ by Mikhael Sholokhov , one of the most emotional , nostalgic , yet cruel and tormentfull book I ever read . It depicts the civil war in Russia , in 1918 . Although we are not Russian , my father had a first hand information about the abuses of war , being forced to flee Romania by the geographic nearness of the WW| front line . The book is an extraordinary achievement , informative , written how only a Russian soul can write , longing after a happiness that only exists in our imagination , yet very often the style is very realistic ....The book is on my shelf waiting to be reread someday again by me .....

An earthy portrayal of Cossack life and death during the Russian Civil War. Long and complex, but worth the effort, especially for anyone with an interest in the Russian Civil War or the now-extinct Cossack way of life. The images will stay in my mind for a very long time. The details could only have been written by someone who lived the events.

See my review of And Quiet flows the Don

After rereading "And Quiet Flows the Don" after almost 30 years, I wanted to read the follow-on story of the characters so I bought this book. It's the second of a three part narrative. It pretty much satisfied my interest in the plot and the characters. As well written as the first book.

I am a big fan of Mikail Sholokov and his books; however, one should read the entire book of "And Quiet Flows the Don" first before reading this book. This book only follows the development of the earlier book.
Whereas I probably read Sholokhovs And Quiet Flows the Don three or four times, I have read The Don flows Home to The Sea only once. It is a dark, nihilistic and foreboding novel. Picking up where volume one leads off, it follows the Russian Civil War to its conclusion in orgy of violence, death and destruction. I can see why other reviewers see this novel has having no redeemable qualities- it is a story of death, betrayal and heartache.
Yet, I give it a Five-Star rating. It is still a great novel. Once again we follow the Prokoffievich family as it tries to survive in the chaos of war. I was particularly intrigued how our protagonist, Gregor, changes sides from the Reds to the Whites and back. Clearly, Gregor was not driven by ideological considerations, but by survival, and yes, perhaps even his own self interest. By the way, from a historical perspective, this is probably the last war in which horses and cavalry were extensively used. Think about it as late as 1920's, men were fighting on horseback. Wow! Yes, it is worth the read, but you may only read it once. It is a terrifying novel.
