Review: The Gulag Archipelago, 1918-1956: An Experiment in Literary Investigation, Books I-II (The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956 #1-2)

User Review  - Keith Perena - Goodreads

Take the book with patience. Some will laugh at Solzhenitsyn's dark humor when he does some wordplay which he then follows up with the cold facts of the Soviet labor system. The Archipelago is enjoyable as it is heavy. A beautiful combination of imagery and journalism. Read full review

User Review  - Josh Trapani - Goodreads

I've just finished volume 1 (parts 1 and 2). The Gulag Archipelago is three volumes, with seven (I believe) parts. (There is a single volume abridged version, but honestly, if you are going to read this at all, why in the world would you read it abridged?) Read full review
