Life changing

One cannot read this book and remain unmoved. The cruelty inflicted upon the cast of characters is unconscionable and sickening, but are the direct result of an ideology overtaking the minds and institutions of a country. I fear that while this may be the Russian/Soviet past, it is not so in the West. It may well be it’s future. God save us from such a fate!

audible pls. go back to before

informative series. in depth with excellent narration. Bit off topic but I don't appreciate the new "surprise" infomer that has to let us know our "own" books which we clearly realize they are "broken" down being we users of audible were the ones that "downloaded" and paid for in the first place. I find it a major buzz kill at the end of every part to have to get startled by. also dont appreciate the new personalized good evening afternoons. seem phoney. annoying. now and intrusive

This Should Be Required Reading

The narrator to a few hours to get use to and really his reading was the only area of opportunity I could find. We've spent so much time and energy talking crap about the Nazis AND RIGHTLY SO but I am ashamed that our Leftist teachers, historians, media, and universities have not shown us how horrible communism is and was. Be very very careful because the stories in this series may be the future of America, if we are not careful. Just look at our Pravda style media today. Look at how they control the low information people. Look at how they can hide the crimes of the elite. If you are a parent, please listen to or read this book with your kids.
