[Novel] The Gulag Archipelago Volume I (Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn)

Gulag Archipelago

The book that destroyed the Soviet Union. The scariest part about communism was how it was well intentioned and most atrocities were caused by people who thought they were doing everything in the name of good.

…Except for Stalin, if you thought Hitler was bad, you should learn about this guy.

Positive:
Negative:
A heartfelt and detailed account of everything wrong with communism
Illuminating on Russian history and culture
Thought-provoking on politics and human nature
