    Dear Mr Solzhenitsyn,I am not a Russian scholar, not even in the armchair variety But you have done something magical in ONE DAY IN THE LIFE OF IVAN DENISOVICH that eclipsed this reader s ignorance you have transmuted what it was like to live a life day in and day out in much the same fashion Think about it Morning, the same as yesterday Afternoon the same as yesterday s afternoon The night yep, the same And this made me yearn for a day when Ivan would awaken and see that it would be different T [...]

    Some Nobel Prizes in Literature resulted in trouble than glory for the laureates Little did it matter to Harry Martinson that his genius epic poem Aniara An Epic Science Fiction Poem spoke for his worthiness as a Nobel Laureate, the bad press that followed the announcement ruined his mental health.In the case of Solzhenitsyn, the attention he received internationally after the award quite literally threatened his physical well being and his ability to live and write in the country he considered [...]

    it s all about perspective yeah, ivan denisovich shukov is in a soviet labor camp, where he is freezing and has to work at bullshit tasks and is being punished for something he didn t even get to do because being a spy is cool, while being punished for being a spy when you didn t even get to have the fun of being a spy is lame , and it s all terrible with no end in sight, but come on.he got to sleep late his punishment for oversleeping is he had to wash some floors indoors instead of working out [...]

    I want to appreciate life the way Ivan Denisovich Shukov does.I want to take pride in my work I want to taste every bite of sausage, suck the marrow out of every fish bone, enjoy every puff of every cigarette, bask in a sunset, watch the moon cross the sky, fall asleep content I want to focus on the necessities of living I want to focus on life, but I have too much It s not much compared to most everyone I know, but it is still too much And because it is too much I can t appreciate life the way [...]

    My copy of the 1963 novel that won Alexander Solzhenitsyn the Nobel Prize is thirty six years old, and it looks it not just because it is dog eared and the pages tinged yellow, but because the jacket copy is thick with Cold War fever This copy, for example, is THE COMPLETE, UNEXPURGATED TRANSLATION BY RONALD HINGLEY AND MAX HAYWARD One Day is A SHATTERING PORTRAIT OF LIFE INSIDE STALINIST RUSSA It is also the terrifying story of an almost unbelievable man made hell the Soviet work camps and of o [...]

    The degree of civilization in a society can be judged by entering its prisons Fyodor DostoevskyThis book was a good way to take my mind off of my own problems Reading about the grueling conditions of a Soviet gulag made my daily worries seem trivial.The novel is set in Stalin s Russia of the 1950s and follows the prisoner Shukhov from the moment he wakes up at 5 a.m to when he finally goes to bed after laboring all day Shukhov was sentenced to 10 years of hard labor, even though he was innocent [...]

    Moral of the tale No matter your socioeconomic position in life, or the degree of happiness in it, hard WORK is just the thing to let the hours sift on byThe book that caused such a general sensation back then is but a significant albeit very tiny beep on the literature radar now The smallness made big by elegant overexpressive prose is a sight to behold, but not, alas, a true wonder to read.

    Totalitarian communism could produce some harsh results.Such is the succinct message sent by Soviet writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in his 1962 publication One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich First published in the Soviet journal Novy Mir, and then later translated into many, many languages including English, Solzhenitsyn uses severe realism to describe conditions in a Soviet political prisoner camp.Literally telling a twenty four hour period in the life of the camp, we follow various character [...]

    that day, some people drink their first beer or have their first kiss kissedthat day, some people wreck their car on some road and some of them tear it all to piecesthat day, people lose cherry or goes bananathat day, some people find jesus sitting on their bedroom wall and whispering to them it s alright, kiddo that day, some junkies swallow their pain and a bullet down together into their throat, meanwhile, some human flesh stuffed wolves feel joy under the warm bright sunlight with their nake [...]

    Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn had two huge strokes of luck with One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich.Firstly Khrushchev allowed its publication in the journal Novy Mir This is something that should make readers cautious It was the first story published in the Soviet Union set in the Gulag system, it wasn t a a searing indictment of the soviet system it was something that was considered fit for publication in the context of a society which was making tentative steps into de Stalinisation Secondly it w [...]

    this was like the last couple of holidays i have been forced to go on with my family they make you do all this crap and then they make you pretend you are having a good time doing it as if just doing it is not enough for them you have to keep saying you are having a good time and grinning like a babboon so i could see where the guy in this book was coming from but that didnt make it suck less they made me go in a zoo which is gross the animals are not really like on tv and some of them resent yo [...]

    Can a man who s warm understand one who s freezing What I have to say might spoil the book And so here are two quotes from two other Nobel laureates, the first describes the book well enough and the second is in case you feel depressed after on condition of humanity after reading it Writer cannot put himself today in the service of those who make history he is at the service of those who suffer it Albert Camus You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming Pablo Neruda

    I hadn t noticed how much this book had affected me until I sat down to dinner Bear with me One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch is a fascinating story in light of its historical context While reading the book I had a hard time reminding myself that this story didn t take place in some nineteenth century prison, but in the nineteen fifties The life that these men live is hard, grueling, and for that Ivan describes his day as a good one One in three thousand six hundred and fifty three days of [...]

    Single Quote Review Macbeth s self justifications were feeble and his conscience devoured him Yes, even Iago was a little lamb too The imagination and the spiritual strength of Shakespeare s evildoers stopped short at a dozen corpses Because they had no ideology.

    This is supposed to be a full, uncensored version unlike the originals done by a better translator According to the foreword, there s not a lot of change, just some sentiments details that wouldn t have made it originally It s been too long since I read my old paperback copy for me to tell if that was the same or not, though It doesn t really matter, this is an incredibly moving perceptive novel Since it s a 50 year old classic, I m not going to worry about spoilers in my review nor do I think t [...]

    Bitterly cold wind whips all around me One of the most chilling book I have ever read The belly is a demon It doesn t remember how well you treated it yesterday it ll cry out for tomorrow Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

    During the Stalin regime, people were sentenced to hard labor for the flimsiest reasons I wondered why the author focused on just one single day in a grim labor camp since the prisoners usually had long imprisonments of eight to twenty years Ivan Denisovich Shukhov is in his eighth year of a ten year sentence Conditions are horrible with inadequate food, warm clothes, and heat in frigid conditions But he cannot think of the future because his prison term could be extended if the authorities brou [...]

    Who needs air conditioning when there is this book I could feel the chill of the Siberian winter even if at home I am struggling with 38 degrees celsius.

    Solzhenitsyn wrote a really good novella that effectively showed the horrendous life of people in the forced labor camps run by the Soviet government He showed the dreariness and sameness of the days, which must have led to so much boredom and even mental breakdowns He allowed the reader to feel the cold seep into their bones He made me hungry I was completely immersed in the story and longing for a way to break the pattern And then as the book wound to an end he brilliantly told of the thousand [...]

    I have read so many novels with concentration camps as setting so this classic and controversial book just did not really have much impact to me In fact, this day in the life of Ivan Denisovich is comparable to just another day in the life of K.D Absolutely.You see, there are days when K.D Absolutely is sick but he has to go to the office because he needs to work for his family He is the breadwinner because his wife has already retired after 20 plus years of working trying to augment what income [...]

    I m slowly getting sucked into the world of audiobooks and loving them and , but I nearly abandoned this one I am glad I didn t, though.This Blackstone edition suffers from one of the most painful voices I have ever heard some guy named Richard Brown He has a nasally, whiny, smoke too much voice that grates the ears the way skin grates when a thumb slips off a carrot and gets shredded He makes no attempt to offer performance of any sort, opting instead for straight reading No variations of emot [...]

    Literary brilliance captured in one book, in one day and one man s story Evocative descriptions of a days toil in the frozen wastes of a Siberian labour camp where unthinkable hardships are subtly diminished by the joy and the triumph of surviving another day Precise, cold, crisp, bitter and hardened like the tundra upon which the writer stood as he scribed this story Well deserving of its place on the 1001 books to read before you die list If you read one book from the list this year, make sure [...]
