    "The solution isn't about the mafia but about a totalitarian government and the horrors of life in a prison camp. The solution doesn't work but the book is fantastic and is well worth the read "

    "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich is a book that will really make you think about your life and how well you have it compared to others. Ivan's life is filled with trials and tribulations of which I could never imagine having to go through and it has allowed me to learn more about the life of outsiders that did not have it as good as me growing up.

    "This novel is a Russian historical classic. This follow up to Day in the Life and Gulag Archipelago concentrates mostly on building the characters. It is a great novel to read when you are snowed in for the weekend!"

    "I liked reading One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, it was one of the better bits of historical fiction I've ever read. The perspective of a man living in Russian under Stalin's terrifying rule was eye opening to say the least. A must read for those interested in Russian's history under communism. "

    "This is a classic of Russian literature! Ivan Denisovich is a wonderful protagonist, and this book oozes with the Russian spirit. It can be a little hard to read, especially since it's a translation - but it is still well worth the time. I recommend this to anyone interested in historical fiction, or in Russian culture. Or anyone who just wants a good, and fast, read!"

    "What a brutal world he had to live in. It's just unimaginable to think that conditions like this existed, but I guess the world and particularly Stalin's Russia was a different place back then. The translation is really good too. Everybody should read this."
