    Wow.The first volume of Soltzhenitsyn s book was fantastic, this one is so much better Yes, part 3 which consists about 597 of the 672 pages drags after a while In it he takes the reader through the Gulag, with chapters on the overseers, the children and pretty much every other aspect of the camps We know it is vital to never forget the horrors of 20th century totalitarianism, and this book ought to be required reading to help us never forget But it is the short part four where the best of the book comes in Soltzhenitsyn talks about how the camp brought out who people really are People, he argues, did not become evil in the camp Rather, they were already evil and this brought it out This reminds me of Jesus teachings about those faithful in small things will be given Who are really are when you re poor and insignificant will be amplified if given the chance At the same time, Soltzhenitsyn reminds us that it is not just that some are evil, for that dividing line runs through each of us fun fact, that is the one quote you may be familiar with, and he says it twice, having said it early in volume 1.How does that work How is it both true that people in the camps who became corrupt already ...

    Volume two was just as soul crushing as Volume I full review to come at the end of Volume III The section entitled The Soul and Barbed Wire certainly makes the journey worthwhile, and I am very glad to be reading the unabridged version.

    If one is to read only one part of the trilogy, this is perhaps the one The first one has a lot of history and context which are relevant but not unique I am sure the last one the one I am going through now will have a lot of views on consequences and future The middle volumes are the core that defines the monumental work.A lot of what I reviewed in the first volume is worth repeating If there is any literary work, where no reviewer is even worthy of commenting, this is perhaps that Our race has seen indescribable tragedies The worst are perhaps those created by men themselves Stalin s great purge must rank near the top of any such list Solzhenitsyn s work ensures that future generations never forget its minutest details That the author published this at tremendous personal risks and post achievements like a Nobel prize which would make perhaps some other to turn less ambitious or brave embellishes the great service this work has done to our societies.That said, this is an incredibly hard book to read The writing style is fluid Despite the voluminous details and hundreds of tales containing different types of people, places and nature, the rhythm is consistent and rarely containing ...

    So we re through Volume Two of this behemoth indictment on the evils that occurred in Russia between the years of 1918 and 1956 As I stated in the review of Volume One, the level of emotional intensity at which this series of books is written is pretty unbelievable It s no wonder this book is credited as helping to bring down the Soviet Union.This volumes two parts focus on camp and camp life where you end up after interrogation and transit prisons covered in the first book then an unbelievable chapter called The Soul and Barbed Wire Only those can understand us who ate from the same bowl with us Hutzul girlThere is no limit to what should be included in this part To attain and encompass its savage meaning one would have to drag out many lives in the camps the very same in which one cannot survive for even one term without some special advantage because they were invented for destruction And from this it follows that all those who drank of this most deeply, who explored it most fully, are already in their graves and cannot t...

    Finally can start reading this again I got a replacement though it be a lowly paperback reprint as I m no longer wealthy for my 1st edition that the USPS lost when I moved, along with 36lbs of other collectible and expensive books several volumes of A Study of History unabridged, Hitler s War, Inwagen s Metaphysics, A Secular Age, Philosophy for Graduate Students, The World as Will and Representation, vols 1 and 9 of Copleston s history, Wilson s Sociobiology, Wittgenstein s Investigations, Strauss Howe Generations, a 1st editi...

    Another chunk of one of the most staggering literary achievements I ve ever taken in It s insane to me just how exhaustive Solszhenitsyn was on every front it truly feels like everything is accounted for in this narrative historically, biographically, and existentially On top of all that, his prose is always vibrant, his narrative always engaging, and his dark sense of humor always keeping you anchored through one of humanity s worst storms The chapter in here that s written as a satirica...

    This book troubles my soul deeply, as I think it does with every reader It is not at all heavy in the sense of style, well that was an exageration, but S s language is very vivid and capturing despite that this is not a novel It is probably fitting that the Gulag Archipelago is immensly long, since that heavyness of the books can only be match by that heavyness of the subject S shows that massive ...

    The fact that Solzhenitsyn made it out of the Gulag alive and blessed us with this book is an absolute gift This is the most influential book I ve read to date in my life A Masterpiece Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either but right through every human heart and through all human hearts This line shifts Inside us, it oscillates with the years And even wit...

    Solzhenitsyn continues his mammoth exploration of the Gulag with a detailed study of the labor camp system, its practices, and its residents, the natives of Gulag He then follows with a much shorter meditation on ...
