    1. There are some who are in darknessAnd the others are in lightAnd you see the ones in brightnessThose in darkness drop from sight.Bertold Brecht, The Threepenny OperaLast year I read Revolutionary Russia, 1891-1991: A History, in which Orlando Figes outlines the history of the Soviet Union as ‘a hundred-year cycle of violence in pursuit of utopian dreams’ - a fluently written, very concise synthesis , predominantly political and narrative in structure. Having finished the book, Figes’s inap [...]

    2. There's more wealth, but there's less strength; the binding idea doesn't exist anymore; everything has turned soft, everything is rotten, and people are rotten.-Lebedev, The IdiotRussia is a gas station masquerading as a country.-Senator John McCainI once read a comment that Alexievich was an unusual candidate for a Nobel Prize in Literature because her work was in journalism, not in fiction. She recorded (transcribed) what other people said and felt. This is a dismissal of her work, as it takes [...]

    3. "We sit atop the ruins of socialism like it's the aftermath of war."UNLIMITED STARS. One of the best books I've ever read. THE most personally touching and relevant book I've EVER read. A book that penetrates the soul of my being and explains me to myself. An Autobiographical Reviewthis book is my autobiography, and it speaks my heart better than I ever have articulated it myself; many details below are personal, but they are also in the book, and what the book is about. "Communism had an insane [...]

    4. This is a brilliant book about modern Russian history. The author interviewed dozens of Russian citizens and documented their stories about life in the Soviet Union, and how life has been since it fell. There is a helpful timeline at the front of the book, detailing events after Stalin's death in 1953, up to the rise of Putin and to armed conflicts in the Ukraine in 2014.I started reading this late last summer, before we knew that Russia had interfered with America's presidential election. Even [...]

    5. “There were new rules: if you have money you count- no money you are nothing. Who cares if you have read all Hegel?” I made a rule one day that every time, whenever I get time to visit any book fair, I’ll purchase at least one non-fiction and that non-fiction must fulfill three criteria. First, its cover should be extremely charming, second, it should be bulky, and third, it must be historical. A world book fair was organized in my city last month, I rigorously followed the rule and the bo [...]

    6. 3.5 I spent the last month reading this, not because it didn't interest me, it did, but because of the format. Interviews with those who live in Russia from Stalin to I believe 2012. Was just too much for me to read in one sitting, so I read a few each night before bed. A very worthy book, important to hear from those who actually lived thought these times. Some of this was brutal, the gulags, Siberia, the fear but many also missed the days of Communism, missed life under Stalin, saw him as a he [...]

    7. I was eleven or perhaps twelve years old when I learned that ignorance is no excuse for anything. That revelation completely changed the way I viewed the world. I ran to my parents, separately, I remember, my eyes wide. I said to each of them, “Ignorance is no excuse!” It won’t save anyone from the repercussions of whatever they are ignorant of. You can die as a result of ignorance or you can participate in something evil as a result of ignorance.As I remember it, my parents did not say an [...]

    8. 3.5 Stars,Svetlána Alexándrovna Alexiévich is a Belarusian investigative journalist and non-fiction prose writer who writes in Russian. She was awarded the 2015 Nobel Prize in LiteratureSeconhand time: The Last of the Soviets traces the emotional history of the Soviet and post-Soviet individual through carefully constructed collages of interviews. Svetlana Alexievich weaves a rich catholog of Russian voices telling their stories of Worshipped Russian leaders, of love and death, hard and sad t [...]

    9. "I am where the clever guys are, Where the posters say "Forward!"Where the working country is singingIts new workers' songs.My heart is worried, my heart is troubled,The postal cargo is being packedMy address is not a house or a street,My address is the Soviet Union"-Samotsvety, My address is the Soviet Union (1972)In 2015, Svetlana Alexievich has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. This is remarkable for several reasons - Alexievich is not only one of the few women to ever win the awar [...]

    10. Wind of Change"I follow the MoskvaDown to Gorky ParkListening to the wind of change."Scorpions, Wind of Change, 1990.Before giving my brief thoughts, a HUGE thanks to friend Ioana, a native Romanian now in the U.S whose review is must read. She's a brilliant writer who lived under Communist rule and terror of Nicolae Ceaușescu. Her review is the best I've read on for any book; a pure concerto of the personally poetic and the pellucidly profound [Ioana's review]. After reading it, I immediatel [...]

    11. This is such a quotable book. Not because of anti-communist rhetoric, or -propaganda, since the book was originally written in Russian for a widely diverse Russian population. Secondhand Time: The Last of the Sovietsis an honest internal dialogue that is taking place, once again, in the kitchens where people gathered to eat, drink, talk, and sleep on the large masonry stoves. Their only little patch of freedom.Through a journalist, touring the country for several years, conversations are brought [...]

    12. I’m reading this oral history of the Soviet era through the lens of the present moment. How could I not? The voices of Svetlana Alexievich’s subjects blend with the voices I hear on the news. You’ve got the revolutionaries, fierce believers in the rightness of their cause. Some are idealists, others admit to less pure motives.Our era—my era—was a great era! It was a great time! We will never live in such a big and strong country again.For us, mercy was a priest’s word. Kill the White [...]

    13. There's an old saying (well, it's starting to sound old) that if the 19th century with its optimism and progress ended in 1914, then the 20th century of dictatorships and great wars ended in 1989. The wall fell, the oppressed cut symbols from their flags, the experiment was declared a failure and we started over. Everyone (well, every European, which is what counts) was free and could live as they always wanted, with democracy and justice for all.No one had taught us what freedom means. We'd onl [...]

    14. After finishing "Secondhand Time, The Last of the Soviets", I realized that I am an ignoramus, a lazy news minder, generally a casual observer of headlines containing "Russia", Soviet, etc The silence of the Iron Curtain, of my era, has left a wall of uncomprehending disinterest and perhaps even some distaste, with its butcher Stalin, its KGB, its political prisoners and lack of freedoms. As a Westerner, I celebrated Czechoslovakia's independence and idly listened while other countries in the So [...]

    15. Can you add more than Five Stars?This is a book that completely hits every interest I hold dear. It is a historical memoir of many voices from within the former USSR. Imagine if one day you woke up and the United States was no more. In its place was several countries suddenly "freed" to be as they want without any support of government. Every political and social fragment of society allowed to grab for the voice of the new republics. What would happen? The Confederate States come together? New E [...]

    16. If you are interested in modern day Russia & if you want to understand the country: read this book!

    17. Testimonianza notevole sul crollo dell'Unione Sovietica visto dal basso, cioè dalla popolazione. Nella motivazione al Nobel si legge che il premio è stato insignito all'autrice per aver dato voce a chi non ne ha, alla gente comune, quelli che hanno vissuto sulla propria pelle il repentino cambio di regime politico ed economico. L'intervento autoriale è ridottissimo, qualche commento in corsivo sulla persona intervistata o sulle circostanze, questo all'inizio può dare fastidio, si ha l'impres [...]

    18. The 2015 Nobel Prize winner pieces together a sweeping oral history of post-Soviet life. The subjects she interviews range from ages 14 to 87. However, a few common themes emerge from their testimonies: marveling at the naïveté of their assumption that a regime change would improve life; the shame of poverty; disillusionment with Russia’s leadership; the lure of American culture; and so on. This is a weighty book in terms of both length and subject matter. It is worthy of a slow read over so [...]

    19. How do you understand the Russian soul? By reading the trigenerational canon of Gogol, Tolstoj and Dostojevski ? Rather the literary revolutionaries such as Gorki or Tsjernysjevski'sand Lenin's take on the question "What is to be done?" Perhaps Soviet mainstays such as Boris Polevoj's Bible of the future Afghantsy or that of the kitchen rebels ?Or put on some tunes.Perhaps Secondhand Time: The Last of the Soviets strikes closer to home. The main theme goes easy on the ear: "we wanted something e [...]

    20. ETA: it takes a while to get into this book. Don't judge it too quickly. The longer interviews are more interesting and it takes a while until you get to them. *****************************I definitely recommend reading this book. I think it has a few shortcomings but it is still well worth your time. It is an important book; it captures Russian history through the voices of the people who lived through Stalin’s terror, the disintegration of the U.S.S.R. and the first decade and a half of the [...]

    21. Втора книга на Алексиевич прочетена и отново нямам желание да напиша ревю Историите вътре са много, всяка различна и все пак приличащи си всичките. Съветските хора са феномен, останал и до ден днешен неразбираем за останалите, имали щастието да не са засегнати от червената [...]

    22. The book "Secondhand-Zeit" was written by Svetlana Alexiewitsch in 2013. She reports on life after the Cold War in Russia. The Country is in a phase in which the Country has to find itself again.Svetlana Alexiewitsch (Nobel Prize Laureate) İnterviewed people from different Social strata of the Nomenklatura, as well as numerous citizens of the former Soviet Union of different age groups, between the Years 1992 and 2012.The emancipated improvement in life conditions did not simply occur.İ have r [...]

    23. On this awful inauguration day, many Americans are weeping; others are laughing hysterically. I'm still in shock. Last night, instead of distracting myself with Seinfeld or spending time with my friends, I read the final pages of Svetlana Alexievich's harrowing Secondhand Time. Trump claims to represent the "voice of the people," but he controls it, co-opts it. But Alexievich guides the voices, lets the people speak for themselves. She lets the people, angry, frustrated, marginalized, disconcert [...]

    24. "The story is too terrifying and beautiful to believe I realized that they didn't believe me Do you believe me?""I believe you" I tell her. "I grew up in the same country as you. I believe you!" [And both of us cry.] - Part II; On Romeo and Juliet Except Their Names Were Margarita and AbulfazIn Secondhand Time, Svetlana Alexievich, winner of the 2015 Nobel Prize in Literature, develops a complex and powerful narrative of life in the USSR prior to and post collapse. Through the compilation of int [...]

    25. Li este livro em poucos dias, apesar de não ser uma leitora particularmente rápida. O formato em que está escrito - uma série de relatos de pessoas de diferentes idades e origens que vivem ou viveram na União Soviética em diferentes épocas e atravessaram o período da Perestroika - faz com que a leitura se torne bastante dinâmica. Os relatos, esses, são muito variados, mas todos eles impressionantes. A transição brusca entre o comunismo desumano pré-Gorbatchov e os abusos das máfias [...]

    26. Малко е несериозно, но първото нещо, което се сещам за Беларус е онзи футболен тим с култовото име БАТЕ Борисов. Преди много години си спомням колко високомерно гледахме на този отбор, на тези "трактористи", "текезесари", и им се присмивахме. Днес, близо десетилетие по-късно, Б [...]

    27. Parlare di questo libro è difficilissimo, perché non si può commentare una trama, dei personaggi, uno stile. Si corre il rischio di giudicare persone in carne e ossa, di trattare come macchiette gli uomini e le donne che hanno prestato la loro voce a Svetlana Aleksievič per la composizione di questo mosaico post-sovietico. È un libro che propone la contemplazione di una specifica parte di umanità, quella che ha dovuto cambiare vita e mentalità (con l'eccezione dell'ultima testimonianza) d [...]

    28. I used to understand our way of life… The way we lived used to make sense to me… Now, I don’t understand anything anymore… None of it makes any sense at all…Προφορικές διηγήσεις νοσταλγίας, στέρησης, υπερηφάνειας και ντροπής, απομυθοποίησης, εθνικισμού• οι ιστορίες υφαίνονται από εκατοντάδες συνεντεύξεις, από ένα παλίμψηστο φωνών και [...]

    29. Στην έκδοση του Φεβρουαρίου του the book's journal δημοσιεύεται μια συνέντευξη της συγγραφέα στον Δημήτρη Τριανταφυλλιδη. Αξίζει τον κόπο να τη διαβάσει κανείς!*** Εάν δεν κατέχει κάνεις την νεότερη ιστορία κι ειδησιογραφια της Ρωσίας, το βιβλίο αυτό θα του φανεί βαρετό. Η ιστορία τ [...]

    30. Questo libro è una raccolta di testimonianze. Grazie a questi racconti si riesce a ricostruire un lungo periodo storico, che abbraccia tutte le fasi del comunismo e del "post" comunismo. E' incredibilmente toccante; crudele e straziante allo stesso tempo. La Grande Storia viene filtrata dalla vita di persone qualunque. Sono storie di vita ordinaria, di famiglie, di amori, di guerra. E' interessante vedere come lo stesso avvenimento può essere visto e sentito in molti modi diversi. Amore e mort [...]
