    schema:description ""Dr Zhivago tells the story of five young people as they live through the Russian Revolution, when the Russian monarchy is overthrown and the world's first Communist state is established. There is Yury Zhivago, brilliant and idealistic doctor, poet and writer; Tonya, who is a lawyer and Yury's wife; Lara, a nurse; her soldier husband, Pasha, who is an inspired leader of men; and Misha, philosopher and friend to Yury. Yury Zhivago is the true hero of this epic story -- we see the turbulence and danger of the Revolution and the First World War through his compassionate eyes. Yury, while married to Tonya, falls deeply in love with Lara, a woman of mystery and magnetism. Both Yury and Lara love their families. But their love for one another seems destined. They meet, are parted by the ravages of war, meet again and are parted once more. Although the end of the story may seem tragic, it is not, for their love transcends death itself."--Http://www.penguinreaders.com (March 2, 2011)."@en ;
