The Kreutzer Sonata - Leo Tolstoy 3.5 stars.

Read this Tolstoy novella because it featured in the storyline of [b:Second Person Singular|13238290|Second Person Singular|Sayed Kashua|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1344678386s/13238290.jpg|18436416] by Sayed Kashua.

Rather than the linked edition, I read a free copy online:

Tolstoy's banned novella certainly tackles many subjects with vehemence. He presents succinct arguments in a tightly woven tale wrapped in anger & jealousy.
