    Ö Град обреченный eBook ↠ Град kindle, обреченный pdf, Град обреченный ePUBHere is a fantastic deep and nuanced review of this work at the LA Review of books by a professor of Russian and Comparative literature It delves into the background of the authors and the context they were writing in I cannot hold a candle to it and highly recommend giving it a readWith that being said I do have some thoughts on the experience of reading the book This was my first foray into Soviet science fiction It certainly had a different feel from its Western cousin It was overtly political the setting felt much dingier and the characters felt much grounded I really enjoyed it but I clearly missed lots of the message in light of reading the LA Review of Books review While a working knowledge of Soviet society is not necessary to get absorbed in this book I think it probably helps provide some context to the reader

    Ö Град обреченный eBook ↠ Град kindle, обреченный pdf, Град обреченный ePUBI often complain that so called dystopias aren’t anything of the sort Now this is what I call a dystopia I spotted it on the library new acuisitions shelf and was instantly hooked by the statement ‘A BOOK SO POLITICALLY RISKY THAT ITS VERY EXISTENCE WAS KEPT SECRET FOR SIXTEEN YEARS’

    Ö Град обреченный eBook ↠ Град kindle, обреченный pdf, Град обреченный ePUBMany parts of this dense philosophizing sci fi magnum opus were amazing near comparable to a modern day Tolstoy The Doomed City is the bildungsroman of a very arrogant character named Andrei and his journey from Earth to a garbage collector in the Experiment The Experiment is the Experiment is it a planet a fish tank for aliens another dimensionnew galaxy Who knows to an investigator whereat he loses his moral superiority in service to violence and The State to an editor to a state minister in an autocratic populist fascist regime His journey traces man's rise to power and offered me some personal empathy with and understanding of why and how a person would abandon their morals and essentially sell out for

    Ö Град обреченный eBook ↠ Град kindle, обреченный pdf, Град обреченный ePUBMost people know the Strugatsky brothers from their work Roadside Picnic which is no surprise it’s a short accessible work with a great premise that has inspired a famous film and a video game series as well Before now it was my favorite of their works but The Doomed City with its even greater creativity and complexity has surpassed it Its setting characters and ideas are all first rate and I highly recommend itThe setting is the first striking thing in the book The Mentors mysterious individuals likely not human recruit people from al

    Ö Град обреченный eBook ↠ Град kindle, обреченный pdf, Град обреченный ePUBNot their best science fiction novel How can one top Roadside Picnic but a masterpiece of taking down the absurdity of the Soviet system and showing it for how ridiculous it was No wonder they had to hide the manuscript for 16 years after it was finished This book covers the whole kit and kaboodle for Stalinist governance from the idea of changing nature of the human race from greed to cooperation racing from insane action to insane action for the sake of 'progress' the forced unconditional belief in a better future the system commands the idea of the 'anticity' or some unnamed enemy working against 'the experiment' the ruthless methods of control that gradually become commonplace and comforting to the protagonist the 'Red Building' the Kremlin in my opinion where the intelligentsia play the 'Grand Strategy' grinding up human lives all for the sake of the success of 'the experiment' tortured rationalizations for b

    Ö Град обреченный eBook ↠ Град kindle, обреченный pdf, Град обреченный ePUBThere are some very bitter unpleasant lessons to be taken from The Doomed City and that fucking Red House is just spooky and nightmarish as hellYet the book manages to be so freuently humorousExcellent translation and a fantastic read Roadside Picnic remains my favorite Strugatsky novel but The Doomed City has so much political meat to it; how relevant it is to our current political climate is frightening
