Full disclosure: I’m not an expert or a fan of #scifi in general. However with the insanity we live in this country nowadays and everyone reading #1984 I decided to give this book a chance. #weclaims to be the inspiration for #georgeorwell ‘s classic. Personally I think there are certainly some #genius moments and ideas here: where or who is the #iwithin the we in this constant revolution or how to wake up your soul. On the other hand, I disliked the narrator’s insistence on directly addressing us, the primitives living in 2017. It felt confusing and forced. Overall I recommend it and found it more #dreamlike and #psychedelic than sci-fi. #zamyatin #yevgenyzamyatin#penguinclassics @penguinclassics#russianliterature #totalitarian #dystopia#revolution #замятин #politicalsatire #мы#reality #sciencefiction
