This book was a very interesting insight into the lives of the people that were unfairly put into the Gulag system in the Soviet Union. This brought to light many facts and ideologies that really made you think about some of you own personal opinions in other aspects of politics and such. It talks about some of the atrocities that were committed in the era and how the communist party was waiting to blame it all on Stalin post death. This shows how corrupt and self centered the government regime was. It also says in the book about how the labor system in the Gulag was the economic backbone of the country. This book is an excellent read for anyone who is interested in the social or political aspects of the Soviet Union or the Cold War. I would not suggest this to people who don't like to read as it can be somewhat dry and lengthy at points. However, this is an overall good book which I would easily give a 4 out of 5 stars.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
