I’m usually the girl who doesn’t like the classics, but in this case, I really liked this book. Weeeell… I say I liked it, but what I really mean is that it was easy reading with a compelling story. It’s just so depressing actually. Yes, it’s a satire on communism in Russia, but it’s so bloody spot on that it’s relevant in many more places these days.
I’ve always thought the basic principles of communism sounds great. I mean, what is bad about equality? But it’s when it goes wrong, which inevitably it does, that it turns into a shitstorm. It seems like humanity is doomed… by human nature 😦
