This brutal, shattering glimpse of the fate of millions of Russians under Stalin shook Russia and shocked the world when it first appeared. Discover the importance of a piece of bread or an extra bowl of soup, the incredible luxury of a book, the ingenious possibilities of a nail, a piece of string or a single match in a world where survival is all. Here safety, warmth and food are the first objectives. Reading it, you enter a world of incarceration, brutality, hard manual labour and freezing cold - and participate in the struggle of men to survive both the terrible rigours of nature and the inhumanity of the system that defines their conditions of life.

4.0 One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich /written by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn ; translated by H.T. Willetts
This is the second time that I've read One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich in less than a month. I first read the translation done by Max Hayward and Ronald Hingley, and found something lacking in the story, perhaps due to the translation. After reading this translation by H.T. Willetts, I believ...

3.0 One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich
There were truly profound moments in this story. At times the prisoners were like wild animals just fighting each other for survival, and then there were glimpses of dignity and humanity that were striking against this inhumane backdrop. There are a few images that will stick with me from this sto...
