Reviews of Darkness at Noon

Overall customer rating: 4.500


by JIM12 on Jun 27, 2014

This is a classic novel based on real life experiences. Arthur Koestler was a former communist and intellectual, He grew up in Europe and eventually became a British subject by choice. After experiencing the terror of totalitarianism of both the Nazi and Communist regimes he wrote two volumes (of which this was the first) trying to explain to those who never understood the horror of total government. Naturally the Communist Party banned people from reading the book, which shows its power. We currently live in a world that seems hell-bent on repeating these trajedies. The more government and less freedom we have the closer we get to disaster. Those who worship government use fear and ignorance to further their aims. It is only through knowledge we can avert more of this.
