If you took all the best worst parts of dystopian sci fi novels you might get close to the actual reality of the Soviet "justice" system. This is an exhaustive study of the history of the gulags, including plenty of first-hand accounts from the author and many, many others. No matter how bad you may think your life is at times, nothing can compare to what so many millions went through during this reign of terror. Like the Holocaust, the most amazing thing is that anyone actually made it out alive from these prisons. Thank god they did though, or we might not know the true atrocities that humans are capable of when those in power lose all their anchors to humanity and reality. Excellent translation and read, but will leave you feeling disgusted and lucky to be born in another place and time than this.
