This book grabbed me right out of 2009, into
the time right after the Russian revolution.
It was a struggle to put it down. I've read it
the second time, after awhile will read it again

A Shorter Zhivago
Autobiographical novel by Ayn Rand, who was born in Russia in 1905 and lived through the formative years of the Soviet Union before coming to the West. We The Living chronicles the corrosive effects of collectivism on the human spirit. Perhaps even more relevant and important today than it was when it first appeared in 1936. Lenin's cry of "Peace, Land, Bread" is simply an earlier expression of Obama's "Hope and Change". A great book. Read it.
