it was amazing
bookshelves: sciencefiction
Recommended for: paranoid system-haters
Read in January, 2006

Probably my favorite science fiction book of distopian fantasy. Written in post-revolutionary Soviet Union this took was the inspiration for Orwell's 1984 written twenty years later. You will find many similarities between the two but the direct link to Soviet authoritarianism makes this tale much more relevant. Read this quick read when you just feel like the world is going to poo, it may remind you that it could always get worse!
