These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Heart of a Dog
Adaptation Distillation: the film and stage adaptations tend to exaggerate the brutality and uncouth behavior of the 1920s Communists (and Sharikov's as well), while Bulgakov in the original text pokes fun at the good guys just as quickly as he does at the bad ones. For example, the girl typist who complains on the poor food and miserable wages in the stage version appears to be just a victim of the generalized poverty, while in the original text she has to cope with poor food and an indifferent lover because she had spent most of her wages on cinema tickets.
