Solzhenitsyn at his very best,
This review is from: The First Circle (Hardcover)
The book according to me is a masterpiece by Alexander Solzhenitsyn.The way he has portrayed the characters and their backgrounds is engrossing. There is nothing the reader doesn't know about the characters, their lives, attitudes and thinking. It is a must read for all those who want an insight into the conditions in Russia during the post-world war II era. The way people were arreted the reasons behind the arrests.
**If interested in Russia another good book is "We, The Living" by Ayn Rand
