it was amazing
bookshelves: war

You know a novel is special when it has an eight page character legend at the back filled with names you cannot pronounce and still manages to keep you intetrested for the entire 900 pages. While reading this you get the feeling that you are holding something special; reading a piece of incredible history that made it to print and into my hands only by several miracles. The courage to write this novel under Soviet control and the effort to ensure it made it's way out of Soviet Russia at some point adds to the whole experience you get when reading Life and Fate.
