5.0 out of 5 stars Solzehenitsyn's Opus on life under Stalinist oppression, 6 Feb. 2001
Solzenhitsyn ensures that the reader feels the full weight of Stalin's Soviet Union bearing down; from the chilling to the farcical. On the surface it is the true story of Solzenitsyn's arrest and incarceration for his political beliefs, but through this is weaved a political and social history of the early 20th Century Soviet Union. He captures both the sweep of the nation's history and the stories of real people; the latter illustrated by vignettes passed on to him by other inmates.
This book is a must for anyone who wants to gain a first hand glimpse of the horrors of Stalinism.
