This is the first of three stories in Leo Tolstoy's The Death of Ivan Ilych introduced by Rigina Marler. This book has been extremely interesting so far, and is by far one of the best short story read's I've found. Leo Tolstoy is a legendary author with dozens of literary success's in a variety of different places. Specifically Russian Literature.
I suggest this as a read for anyone!
