I’m on page 353 out of 515 pages of this book. It looks at Communism across Russia during the 1930’s and the Communism rising in China at the same time. Amongst the harsh conditions, the poverty, the suffering and the changes in the way the people must think, there is romance. The story looks at the early principles of Communism and how it’s leaders hoped to make change, and compared them to the reality that the masses endured. It is a shocking and eye-opening book full of sights, sounds and atmosphere of the time.
