Wherever I first heard about this book (I forget where) described it as being a modern Russian 1984.

Krystle and 12 other people liked Hadrian's review of Day of the Oprichnik:
Day of the Oprichnik by Vladimir Sorokin
" Day of the Oprichnik is heavy and blunt, like the oak clubs of the secret police.

Stephen Chbosky
“I think that if I ever have kids, and they are upset, I won't tell them that people are starving in China or anything like that because it wouldn't change the fact that they were upset. And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn't really change the fact that you have what you have.”
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Terry Pratchett
“Gods prefer simple, vicious games, where you Do Not Achieve Transcendence but Go Straight To Oblivion; a key to the understanding of all religion is that a god's idea of amusement is Snakes and Ladders with greased rungs.”
Terry Pratchett, Wyrd Sisters

Kurt Vonnegut
“Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Terry Pratchett
“Time is a drug. Too much of it kills you.”
Terry Pratchett, Small Gods

Terry Pratchett
“The three rules of the Librarians of Time and Space are: 1) Silence; 2) Books must be returned no later than the last date shown; and 3) Do not interfere with the nature of causality.”
Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!
