    A Real Eye-Opener

    There are books out in the world that seem to leave a scar in your memory for the rest of your life. Books that make you feel the characters¿ pain and misery and want to cry along with them. Once this tragic book is finished, one feels relieved, and yet, surprisingly, longing to read more. The Gulag Archipelago is one of those books. It is a true story of a man who actually lived through these hard times and wrote a book about the devastating tortures of Communist Russia. The conditions these prisoners had to go through were mind blowing. Solzhenitsyn shows the living conditions of these prisoners through a variety of stories and facts compiled together in one book. The way this book is written really helps one to sense the atmosphere of the Communist situation in Russia, as seen through a Russian¿s eyes. Solzhenitsyn¿s vivid, detailed, and terrifying descriptions of how innocent people were treated in the camps they were sent to, are an eye-opening reading experience. This book helps one understand the way that Communism really worked as well as all of the misery it has caused. Communism can not be explained better than from a Russian perspective. This is a book I would definitely recommend reading.
