I like the snarky ending from Piggy, after being bossed by Elephant for so long.
Given its historical importance, I fully expected that The Gulag Archipelago would be a lofty read. What I didn't expect was that it works so well as a story. Instead of being a straight history book, Gulag lies somewhere between journalism and history, and Solzhenitsyn's narrative voice is familiar and engaging. The book feels less like a history lesson, and more like a conversation with a good friend who knows how to put together and express an interesting, important, heartbreaking, and unforgettable story. A narrative about the Soviet prison camps seems like it would be so weighty as to be unreadable, but Solzhenitsyn makes it surprisingly palatable. It's quite refreshing when you read a classic for the first time, and instantly understand where all the hype came from.
Again, as with the first book, I used to love these books, but now I really dislike the plot, the language and vocabulary, and the message it sends. This book was especially boring and dull, seeing as the only thing the series had going for it was Bella and Edward as a couple. In this book, it really shows that once Edward leaves, there really is nothing good about this series. This is very disappointing.
