it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction

The fact alone wrote this book under the conditions he faced himself with speaks volumes.
This book opened my eyes to the fact that the atrocities committed by the communist regime are not only equally as heinous, but probably worse than those committed under the nazi regime in 1930's germany; all of which is left out of our indoctrination, ahem, I mean educational system... why, because we were to eventually embrace the ideas of communism under the guise of Fabian socialism. We are to believe that fascism and communism lie at opposite ends of a ficticious linear "political spectrum".

Solzhenitsyn's narrative is compelling and heroic
