Intriguing Look at Stalinist Russia Sept. 23 2010
By Carey Hagan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
"When a man's youth has been kicked and starved out of him, it can't be put back" (208). Yuri is a teenager living in a sort-of Russia under the dictatorship of a sort-of Stalin leader, and mere survival is a challenge, physically and emotionally. Accustomed to brutally hard labor at a young age, he's then exiled to a work camp in the middle of nowhere for basically no valid reason. He realizes that he's nothing but a "cog in a vast national machine," and that his young life is worthless to the political figures for whom he suffers. I liked that this was told from the perspective of a teenager - it seemed credible and well-told. This would be an interesting novel to pair with A Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Alexander Solzhenitsyn. A good read, especially for teens or adults who enjoy historical fiction or dystopian fiction.
