I have just finished reading Nikolai Gogol's 'Dead Souls' to see if there are any references, other than to the book title, in the Joy Division song of the same name.

There aren't and it's really a rather dull read so I'm posting this to save anyone else the bother

"dull", dude xD
It's one of the most important and beautiful Russian novel xD but if you don't like Russian literature, it is obvious that you're not gonna like The Dead Souls
