The Superfluous Man

A Hero of Our TimeA Hero of Our Time by Mikhail Lermontov

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pechorin is the kind of bastard you can't help but have a crush on. These five short stories provide a glimpse into the character of the "Superfluous Man", a kind of bored, over-educated and privileged dilettante (shades of Dorian Gray) who had nothing to do but torment others.
