An epic work,
This review is from: The Gulag Archipelago [Abridged] (Harvill Press Editions) (Paperback)
I'm sure its all been said before, but this is an enormous work. It was a considerable effort to read it, but well worth it. The descriptions were very detailed and gave you a sense of actually being there. My understanding of the Gulag was greatly enhanced by reading this book. Make the effort!
