    Description

    Brought to you by Penguin.

    The audiobook edition of The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, read by the author's son, Ignat Solzhenitsyn.

    With a new foreword written and read by Jordan B. Peterson and an exclusive Q&A between Jordan B. Peterson and Ignat Solzhenitsyn.

    The officially approved abridgement of The Gulag Archipelago Volumes I, II & III.

    A vast canvas of camps, prisons, transit centres and secret police, of informers and spies and interrogators but also of everyday heroism, The Gulag Archipelago is Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's grand masterwork. Based on the testimony of some 200 survivors and on the recollection of Solzhenitsyn's own 11 years in labour camps and exile, it chronicles the story of those at the heart of the Soviet Union who opposed Stalin and for whom the key to survival lay not in hope but in despair.

    A thoroughly researched document and a feat of literary and imaginative power, this edition of The Gulag Archipelago was abridged into one volume at the author's wish and with his full co-operation.

    ©2019 Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (P)2019 Penguin Audio

    Commentaires

    "Solzhenitsyn’s masterpiece.... The Gulag Archipelago helped create the world we live in today." (Anne Applebaum) 

    "[The Gulag Archipelago] helped to bring down an empire. Its importance can hardly be exaggerated." (Doris Lessing, Sunday Telegraph)

    very enlightening, seriously disturbing

    I loved listening to this, it is incredibly interesting, but very hard to listen to sometimes because of the disturbing content

    inspiring and informative

    as a novice in Russian history, I knew little before starting this book. although not always easy to follow, it depicts nicely what happened in Russian Gulags.

    Great story, poor performance

    I was expecting the unabridged version, perhaps that was explicited in the pre-order and I didn't notice.
    Anyways, this was a bit of a letdown.
    The book itself is great, as well as the foreword written and performed by Jordan Peterson, who introduced me to this great work of literature.
    It was also great (and also suspicious, given the fact that he probably isn't a professional reader) that Ignat Solzhenitsyn was brought into the project, given the implications the bond with his father could have played in the performance of the work... but this was a major letdown.
    The performer is just not up to the task. He does a great job with some impersonations, has a good voice and pronunciation, but he is extremely monotonous, sometimes giving an old computer algorithm like feeling to the lecture. But the biggest problem is the "copy-paste" feeling you get throughout the performance, he stops during the reading, sometimes at the beggining, sometimes in the middle, and sometimes just before finishing a sentence, in the last scenario you get an unexpected extra verse after you though he had finished the phrase (due the monotonous quality of the lecture). I don't know if he struggled with the task because the reading wasn't done in his native tongue, but that is not excuse for the QC in audible, get someone else to do it and let Ignat close the book with his thoughts, that would have been waaaayyyyyy better.
    I am returning this book, I just couldn't finish it. I've listened to it for 4 hours... and that's enough. It's the first time I am returning a book for this reason, believe me, I am not that picky about the reading, but this was just too much. If you want a better version there is an unabridged one you can easily find, I will be going back to that one.
    Audible, next time you get someone to read, be sure that merit is the base of that decision.

    Enthralling story but a horrifying journey

    The story of this book is enthralling, I usually have a hard time staying focused on one book at a time, and sometimes even completing a book. Knowing that the average audiobook is 7-8 hours long and that one is triple that amount, it seemed like a daunting task to complete it, but I devoured this book within a week, if that can be a testament to the quality of the writing.

    I've been taught the horrors of the nazi camps in school, but lacked massively in my knowledge of communism and its own share of dead bodies. This book tells a shocking story of what happened in Russia, but also asks us moral questions that profoundly disturb one's mind.
    It is puzzling to see the range of human emotions, from abject monsters to benevolent angels. "The line between good and evil cuts through every man's heart" to quote the author.

    This book brought me to tears many times, by the recollected stories told, it squeezed a few laughs, sighs of disbelief, and awe struck silences.

    I do recommend this book without hesitation.

    The true face of the other genocidal ideology.

    Jordan Peterson was right in saying that "after the publication of The Gulag Archipelago it was not moral for anyone to still call himself a communist". Hard to believe you needed a book for that, but it did show the West what this ideology is truly capable of. "Intelectuals" in democratic, capitalist nations, like France and the US, wers discussing the superiority of socialism and communism, while benefitting from everything capitalism had to offer. Meanwhile, Eastern Europeans were rotting in political prisons, queueing for days to get food and trembling at every word they said, in fear of being arrested. This book is direct, vast and does not spare details. Yes, this really happened, as horrible as it was. Our civilization cannot take the next moral step, in the absence of a Nüremberg trial for communism.

    Gulag Archipelago

    The journey of brutal and devastating destruction of people and fellow Russians is told frankly and explicitly by the author who experienced it all at first hand. His sensitive insights and his searching discussion leaves the reader with an amazing insight into a very dark period of human history. The courage of the author and the poignant reading of the book by his son make for an extraordinary and intimate experience of the painful period of Russian ( and human) history.

    Never thought that a book would take me to such a dark place within myself. Thank you to everyone involved in the production of these pages.

    The best book for 2020

    After all what we have been through in 2020 it's extremely important to gather perspective into the consequences of utopian thinking and also to gather perspective on the hardships endures by our forefathers.

    A must read for every member of the human family.

    Te book is read by the author's son who makes a fantastic job!

    Perfect in all senses. Highly reccomended

    Should be taught in all schools

    If one was to come up with a fictional horror story, they would not be able to put together all the terrors that really happened. Beautifully written and edited, simple to understand, and life changing.

    Horrifying, Deep and Timely

    I can only second what was said in the End Credits: "I can hardly imagine anyone reading this book seriously and not becoming a better person because of it."

    The sheer curage, determination and luck that was necessary for someone to survive these horrors and be able to write this book, produces a virtual obligation on all of us not having been there to at least read about these horrors

    Outstanding

    A deep epochal book, profoundly relevant today, 50 years after its conception. The reading by Ignat Solzhenitsyn is outstanding. This makes listening to this long book with its dark theme an intense experience, easy to hold on. The famous abridgment presented is just right for contemporary readers.

    Don't miss it!

    An important historical document, well written with at times difficult-to-digest sections. But in light of current events and a social context of ever increasing top-down hierarchical directives and a popularized communitarian ethic which appeals to the duties of the individual for (pandemic) health benefits of the collective, this is necessary reading to understand the inevitability of the slippery slope on which we might find ourselves if one-sided directives continue to persist unchecked and unchallenged.
    This book is exceptionally well read by Alexander's son, Yermolai, who participates in a very illuminating interview with Jordan Peterson at the end of "Gulag Archipelago". This Penguin Classic deserves 5/5 IMHO.

    A truly remarkable book

    The history that must never be forgotten. A deep dive in and truthful examination of human souls in an extraordinary time and circumstances.
    The foreword, the narration and the discussion at the end have brought new light to the book’s relevance for today.
    Deeply enjoyed and highly recommended to everyone.

    An extensive look at Soviet atrocities and a personal account. This book should be read in schools all over the world. As Jordan Peterson puts it: Reading this book will make you a better person.

    a must read

    Anyone who wants to understand how far the humanity can go in justifying the cruelties under a "riotous" ideology, this is a must read. However you will not find only desperation and horror, but also how far a human can go in goodness and virtues.
