The Gulag Archipelago, 1918-1956, Vol. 1: An Experiment in Literary Investigation, I-II

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Narrated By: Frederick Davidson

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: August 2011

Duration: 25 hours 58 minutes

Summary:

In this masterpiece, Solzhenitsyn has orchestrated thousands of incidents and individual histories into one narrative of unflagging power and momentum. Written in a tone that encompasses Olympian wrath, bitter calm, savage irony, and sheer comedy, it combines history, autobiography, documentary, and political analysis as it examines in its totality the Soviet apparatus of repression from its inception following the October Revolution of 1917.
This first volume involves us in the innocent victim’s arrest and preliminary detention and the stages by which he is transferred across the breadth of the Soviet Union to his ultimate destination: the hard labor camp.

    The overall story, narration and the meaning behind the book and what he had to go through is something you crave to hear everyday you walk away. By far, one of the best audio books I ever listed to. You were there in the cell, the camps and watching as all of this was unfolding. One of the best and I would strongly recommend this audio book to everyone!
