Publisher's Summary

In this final volume of a towering work that is both literary masterpiece and living memorial to the untold millions of Soviet martyrs, Solzhenitsyn's epic narrative moves to its astounding and unforseen climax. We now see that this great cathedral of a book not only commemorates those massed victims but celebrates the unquenched spirit of resistance that flickered and then burst into flame even in Stalin's "special camps."
Of the Archipelago as a whole, Le Monde has said: "It is the epic of our times. An epic is always the creation of an entire people, written by the one person who has the creative power and the genius to become the spokesman for his nation. And in this work, we hear a people speaking through the impassioned, intrepid, ironic, furious, lyrical, brutal, and often tender voice of the narrator."

Great narration of a story about your worst nightmare. Does communism have any success stories?

Classic book, likely forgotten this days,

I appreciate listening to this book in times that are overshadowed with nationalism, isolationism, mass migrations and wars, and change in status quo. Not least that it was book recommended by uncle who spent 12 years in archipelago and I consider him my closest relative too.
