Larry, in answer to your question, you are absolutely right. There is no way anyone can make an argument that the soviet union or North Korea has or had a good government. But neither of those governments had a true communistic society. it was just fascism called communism. the leaders were only dictators calling themselves comrades. Try looking at kibbutz's. that is the true best form of communism because it is voluntary, and there is no absolute power for anyone.
I find it disturbing that people can say this is hocus pocus. im not christian, but i read this to gain insight into their religion, and though i dont believe it, i dont say its gibberish. im a jew, so even though i dont believe in everything in this book, i still think it can be rude to call it out like that.
This book was incredible. so very helpful. im not studying the great war, but as a person who wanted to just know more about it this book really worked. its very easy to understand. a good read as well as informative.
Absolutely riveting. One would think that because it was written so long ago, it would no longer captivate someone, but it does not use huge victorian words, and the action is quick and concise. I am thirteen, and i find this book amazing. Another fantastic thing is that there are so many sequels. Read it if you get the chance. Its short and a very quick read, but worth your time.
