The composition of the book

Yet none of the books I read attracted me more than the works of Vladimir Kunin. Reading the books of this writer, completely immersed in the atmosphere of what is happening. I think that the interest in his works is due primarily to the very high saturation of events, but at the same time you feel the situation very well. For all the severity of the plot, the author finds a place for a detailed description of the situation in which the action takes place. In the books of Vladimir Kunin, you can read about the events taking place in our time, and about the years of the Great Patriotic War, you can immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. And this variety of subjects gives the author an opportunity to attract the reader to his works. Kunin has works about the fate of Soviet emigrants, and about pilots during the war, a lot of stories and stories about the circus. And here, I think, it is worth noting one point. Vladimir Kunin compares the circus quite often with life. He compares the work of circus acrobats with the service of fighter pilots, and clowns with clowns – with ordinary people. The last comparison is even funny, but this is a real philosophical understanding of life. Hence the old truth arises, but in a new way: “The world is a circus, and the people in it are clowns.”
The most famous, as it seems to me, work of Vladimir Kunin – “Russian on Marienplatz.” This book is devoted,

I think, to the biggest theme in his work – the topic of emigration. Events in the novel flow from the real detective to the lyrical comedy, and the theme is not comic. People leave the country not from a good life, and why they leave, how it happens and what they experience later, we learn on the pages of the book. But the whole book is an episode from the life of three people who left the “scoop” at different times and for quite different reasons. What is surprising is that a simple circus artist, an ordinary girl and the most ordinary tankman have met? But what way did they all go to meet here in Germany, how many blows did they get from life. With one of them it’s pretty simple. He left the circus, flew abroad, could not issue documents. The most ordinary emigrant is a loser. Later he will be lucky, but this is still an accident. Much more interesting story tanker Nartay Sapargaliyev. What do you need a soldier who has a “demobilization on the nose”? He would only wait for this unhappy demobilization. And then came this long-awaited hour, when the withdrawal of Soviet troops from the territory of Germany began. The best tankman is entrusted with an important task – he must transport in his tank, immersed in the car, important strategic documents, accumulated by the authorities during the years of parking abroad. And there is an ordinary coincidence of circumstances. A simple gang of bandits, led by an enterprising “Soviet” emigrant, must unhook from the train car, in which there will be a brand-new Mercedes. And they took with them our acrobat (who else can unhook the car on the run?). But a small mistake was made. The car inside the car was strange for the “Mercedes” model – “T-64”. But in one they still were not mistaken. The machine, as expected, was in working order. But this fact did not please the “Mercedes” seekers.
And two friends already make a long trip in the tank, moving forward at night and stopping by day.
Just as interesting, but more common is the fate of Katya Gurevich. Her father does not tolerate, I would say, her mother’s brash treachery, and they leave for Israel, hoping, of course, for the best. But, as they say, it is good there where we are not. There there were difficulties. Katya does not get along with her father, there are random acquaintances, and earnings consist only in playing the guitar. Only the guitar, by the way, became for her the only true companion always and everywhere. But she, Katya Gurevich, was destined to meet real and great love. But they were separated. Of course, in the end they will meet and live happily ever after, but how much longer does she have to wait and suffer for this! And she already carries a child. Morally, she is already ready to raise a child alone, but still waiting for a loved one.
Three human lives, three fates pass before us in this book. Almost detective stories happen to them, a lot of related experiences are described in the pages of the novel. What, for example, Nartai experienced after learning that these “important strategic documents” – money, their money, that were going to the monument! But he believed his commanders, he considered them to be good people, but at the moment he learned that it was just the height of hypocrisy on their part. What a break in the soul happened at Sapargaliyev’s! And what did Katya feel when she received a letter from her beloved, whom she had been waiting for? Moreover, she found out that he wrote to her, but simply sent a letter by Soviet mail. And yet the book “Russians on Marien-Platz” is more a book about people, rather than events. After reading this book, I learned a lot of new about life,
Another great work about emigrants is “Ivanov and Rabinovich” or “Ai-go-tu-Haifa.” But this is rather a comic story about how two witty people found an unusual way to get to Haifa. a lot of useful.
Not departing from the present, it is possible to note the work “Adam’s Edge”, which, undoubtedly, deserves special attention. Here, life and life of a simple Soviet family are described with great and interesting interest. Mother and two daughters, on whose shoulders does the work of the housework and caring for the paralyzed old woman lie. On the other hand, the mother can share everything only with the same old woman – her mother. Probably, because he does not expect from her a response, no condemnation. All the difficulties and hardships of life are experienced by this family, and they experience them together. Extremely interesting is the episode, where the grandmother’s birthday is described. Is she happy with them? What happens in her soul? She can not say this, but no one tries to read it in her eyes. This episode caused me a lot of emotions. Sit at the table family members, two ex-husbands and, possibly, the future. Now the eldest daughter thinks about his failure in love, and the younger one is preparing to say about the child, who, most likely, will not have a father. Everything goes to a tragic ending, and it seems that the language of the ship market, which hit the old woman on the head, should solve all the problems of the family. I, for example, saw only one outcome, but Kunin, as always, is original. The paralysis disappeared, and the grandmother, the food-lava, made her first steps after a long rest, obeying the old habit, promised “to roll them over to them in the Enkavade.” This story is at least somewhere comical, but it is a 100% description of the most real life. I believe that this book should make a person think about feelings, about relatives and friends. that the language of the ship market, which struck the old woman on the head, should solve all the problems of the family.

Of the large number of historical works, I would like to highlight the story “Airman”. The action takes place at the time of the creation of the first serious aircraft. For Russia this was another new foreign trend. However, more and more became his popularity. The main character is a strong man, performing in the arena of the circus. He and his friends just noted the next peak of their popularity and, surrounded by journalists, accidentally blurted out that he, too, should rise up in the air – a trifling matter. But I must say that people often express true thoughts by drinking.
“Balloonist” is a work about a real man, a strong soul and body. As one of the heroes of the story said: “From this man, from this I understand!” After reading this work, I even rethought for myself such concepts as “courage” and “devotion to the Motherland.” I consider Vladimir Kunin’s work as a multifaceted and comprehensive assessment of the life of Russia, from the end of the nineteenth century to the present day.
