Life of St. Monica - F.A. Forbes - A Short Summary and Review

The Gulag Archipelago, Volume 1 - Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of The Gulag Archipelago:

The insider's guide to the Soviet secret prisons.

My favorite Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn quote from the book:

"Power is a poison well-known for thousands of years."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Do you believe in your government?

Do you have pride in yourself?

My review of The Gulag Archipelago Volume 1:

A damn scary book about the costs of communism.

The conditions broke my heart.

Very hard to get through but, I think, a necessary read.

 I'm tapping out before reading volumes 2 & 3. Volume 1 was enough for me.
