Colleen said:
One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich tells the story of a one's mans daily struggle in a man-made hell. Ivan Denisovich, also referred to as Shukhov, is a prisoner in the Soviet work called camp HQ in 1951. Throughout the novel you feel their pain and desperation. They are mal- nourished, over worked, and longing for freedom in the outside world. You learn how simple things such as receiving a letter from home or getting an extra ration of bread can mean the world when you are in a desperate situation. Although this book is not a thriller and full of excitement it is none-the-less a good read. It reveals the harsh reality of Stalin's rule and the struggle many faced to over come the Communist tyranny.
