      An essential book for readers of soviet/russian literature.

      This book, and all of Solzhenitsyn's work should be read by everybody and in particular Communist sympathizers for which I continually run into. Solzhenitsyn's love of his country (Russia) is apparent within all of his writings as is his sadness for what befell it. His descriptions of the Cancer Ward and the Gulags are crystal clear, you can feel the hunger and severe cold of Russian winters. I would like to take up the Gulag Archipelago but that will have to wait until I have the free time.

      This book contains a superb collection of Solzhenitsyn's most important works. In addition to his short stories, the editors carefully crafted selections from his lengthier novels. The Miniatures and The Red Wheel were my two favorite choices throughout the reader.

      I have never read solzheitsyn before (in fact, I can hardly spell his name), but I have always had a curiosity about Russia. This book is currently knocking my socks off. He is seriously insightful, but, perhaps because it is the translation, the rhythms of his thoughts are cracking my categories a bit. He is anti-modern in a sort of fun way, because I only know of Medieval anti-moderns, and he is not that, but he is still intreaguing and I am definitly enjoying it. Here are a couple of my favor [...]

      Future generations will shake their heads in wonder at the way one of the greatest thinkers and prophet of the 20th Century was so misrepresented and ignored. During the Cold War he was lauded in the West as a symbol of opposition. But when Solzhenitsyn turned out to be also critical of the materialistic capitalist society he was quickly dropped as the "darling" of the West.Now, as so many of the promises of capitalism also turn out to be hollow, it might be possible to re-evaluate this thinker. [...]

      Solzhenitsyn's work can certainly stand on its own. But the introductory essay in the reader opens up the historical experience, literary influences, and purpose of the Nobel laureate's work in a way that can only inform one's reading of his novels and poetry. An excellent introduction to those considering reading Solzhenitsyn's writings.

      This is a great entry into Solz.'s writings.

      Only give three stars because I'm generally not a fan of compilations. Look forward to reading the complete versions of some of the works.

      A well-edited collection of Solzhenitsyn's best essays, stories, and political writings. If you only get one Solzhenitsyn book, let this be the one.

      Great introduction and it left me wanting to read the full versions of his stories.

      This is a very important collection of Solzhenitsyn's writings, because it contains excerpts of books that have never been translated into English before.
