Reviews

  • "This is a book to look out for"

    George Orwell
  • "Zamyatin reminds us, Adam did not wish to be happy, he wished to be "free""

    Anthony Burgess
  • "Precursor to much more famous works by Huxley and Orwell, this antidote to totalitarianism, written by someone who genuinely knew what that sort of existence was like, is the anti-Stalinist dystopia to beat them all - even Brave New World, 1984, and Koestler's Darkness at Noon"

    Toby Green
  • "Two of the most iconic novels in the English language - Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and 1984 by George Orwell - owe an enormous debt to Zamyatin. We is the ur-text of science-fiction dystopias...the product of a powerful imagination"

    Wall Street Journal
  • "One of the greatest novels of the twentieth century"

    Irving Howe
