A Hero of Our Time free pdf Despite his obvious talents and natural abilities, Pechorin is restless and bored. Travelling from the civilised world of society drawing rooms, to the wilds of the Southern Caucasus, he embarks upon a quest for motivation and stimulation. But rather than finding the impetus he so craves, he instead becomes increasingly alienated from those around him. Sickened by the condition of his times, he chooses to reject a life of morality. This study of a man - and a society - in crisis was to become one of the most important books of its time 'I...have read this novel several times, young and old, always hooked' - from the Foreword by Doris Lessing
