A sad young woman boards a train in Moscow. Bound for Mongolia, she's trying to leave a broken relationship as far behind her as she can. Wanting to be alone, she chooses an empty compartment - No 6. Her solitude is soon shattered by the arrival of a fellow passenger: Vadim Nikolayevich Ivanov, a grizzled, opinionated and foul-mouthed ex-soldier, 'a cauliflower-eared man in a black workingman's overcoat and a white ermine hat'. Vadim fills the compartment with his long and colourful stories, recounting his sexual conquests and violent fights in lurid detail. At first, the young woman is not so much shocked as disgusted by him, and she stands up to him, throwing a boot at his head. But though Vadim may be crude, he isn't cruel, and he shares with her the sausage and black bread and tea he's brought for the journey, coaxing the girl out of her melancholy state. As their train cuts slowly across a wintery Russia, where 'everything is moving, snow, water, air, clouds, wind, towns, villages, people and ideas', a grudging kind of companionship grows between the two inhabitants of Compartment No 6 and the girl realises that if she works out how to listen, Vadim's stories may just contain lessons for her. Compartment No 6 is a wickedly mischievous, darkly imaginative and completely unforgettable ride.… (mais)

A young Finnish woman sets out on a long train journey across the Soviet Union, from Moscow to Ulan Baator, Mongolia. The person assigned to share her compartment is an older Russian man, often drunk, usually loud, sometimes unsafe. But also expansive and somewhat friendly. As the journey progresses, he talks, the Russian landscape scrolls past the windows and the trains stops in towns further and further from Moscow.

I'm not sure how to describe this book, except that it is about a place and a style of life that doesn't exist in the same way anymore, written about vividly and without judgement. The protagonist's words are omitted from the story, leaving only the place and the people, especially her travel companion, to speak for her. This is an extraordinary novel and one I'm so pleased to have read. ( )

I was not crazy about this book, but I did appreciate how often it had me turning to the internet to look up the name of a city or food I had never heard of. It was a struggle to stay engaged with the story.

ALSO! Either I'm stupid and didn't understand the continuity, or the actual path of their train journey makes no sense. Why did they go all the way to Khabarovsk if the end destination was Ulan Bator? I don't know much about Russian cities, and was curious about the ones mentioned, so I mapped them out. Unless there are two cities with the same name, it seems like they would have had to do some pointless backtracking to get from Khabarovsk to Naushki, going back through some of the same cities they'd already passed through before. If I'm totally misunderstanding this, hopefully somebody will enlighten me.

It is the late 1980s and the Soviet Union is in its last days. A young Finnish woman, escaping the untidiness of a failed relationship, boards a train in Moscow which is ultimately destined for the Mongolian capital. She settles into compartment no 6. It almost looks as if she will have the compartment to herself when Valdim—opinionated, mouthy, uncouth, crude—settles down in the seat opposite. It’s going to be a long train ride, we think. She doesn’t talk, so he fills the space with his colorful and crude stories, boasting of his exploits and sexual encounters. They are the most unlikely of companions and as the train travels on, making stops both hours short and days long, the two passengers get along as best they can.

It’s clear fairly early on that the 3rd main character in the book is the Russian landscape, not romanticized but presented clear-eyed, and very often rendered poetically beautiful. It almost seemed an elegy of sorts. This is an excellent book and something a bit different, the story has wheels under it, and one cannot help being carried along with it.

This book won the Finlandia Prize, the most prestigious literary award in Finland. ( )

Ihan ok, nopea- ja sujuvalukuinen kirja. Loppu kyllä lässähti jotenkin kesken minunkin mielestäni. Tämä olisi mainio alku jollekin kunnon kirjalle. ( )
