Before Brave New World . . .
Before 1984 … There was . . .
In the One State of the great Benefactor, there are no individuals, only numbers. Life is an ongoing process of mathematical precision, a perfectly balanced equation. Primitive passions and instincts have been subdued. Even nature has been defeated, banished behind the Green Wall. But one frontier remains: outer space. Now, with the creation of the spaceship Integral, that frontier—and whatever alien species are to be found there—will be subjugated to the beneficent yoke of reason.
One number, D-503, chief architect of the Integral, decides to record his thoughts in the final days before the launch for the benefit of less advanced societies. But a chance meeting with the beautiful 1–330 results in an unexpected discovery that threatens everything D-503 believes about himself and the One State. The discovery—or rediscovery—of inner space…and that disease the ancients called the soul.
A page-turning SF adventure, a masterpiece of wit and black humor that accurately predicted the horrors of Stalinism, We is the classic dystopian novel. Its message of hope and warning is as timely at the end of the twentieth century as it was at the beginning.

This book really differs from all others which are compulsory to read during your school studies. The language in this very book as well was new and very dinamic in comparison to other russian classical books. I was really into that language with so many punctual signs you are not used to see that always while reading a book of our classics; in this way thoughts of main hero and everything what was happening were so fast and you were unable to relax, you are in these fast actions.
I found some images hidden in these pages coming into beautiful picture, these smiles and teeth which were so quick but constant remain in my imagination as on-his-own-living image.
That is why it is worth to read this very first in our country dystopia.

Эту книгу уж точно не стоит читать на английском. Читала в оригинале и поражалась тому, как автор выражает чувственную и эмоциональную натуру человека через русскую речь.

🔮Hidden Depths

That means you love it. You are afraid of it because it is stronger than you; you hate it because you are afraid of it; you love it because you cannot subdue it to your will. Only the unsubduable can be loved.”
There is no final revolution. Revolutions are infinite,” and, “I do not want anyone to want for me—I want to want for myself.”
