This one took me a long time to read. Partially because I waited until it was almost out of renewals to really get into it.
It’s so bizarre, weird and fascinating.
Written by Soviet exile Vladimir Voinovich in 1986, about taking a time machine 60 years into the future from Munich, Germany in 1982 to Moscow in 2042.
I don’t want to give away much, but he goes to an incredibly bizarre future of communism.
Where all secondary matter is primary matter, i.e. it’s all shit.
I’m glad the Soviet Union collapsed, it was a totally bizarre system. It’s awfully strange that a former KGB officer Vladimir Putin has become the new autocrat of Russia.
This novel was compared as being a parody of George Orwell’s 1984 in the dust jacket, but it’s something else entirely.
Earth is a very silly place. Good read if slow. I am curious how is reads in it’s original Russian.
