    " Yevgeny Zamyatin book We was a very poetic political book that dealt a lot with dystopian society. I can see the similarities where George Orwell and Aldous Huxley portrayed Zamyatin thoughts. I like that it dealt a lot with the emotions and soul. The ending struck me suddenly, but it made sense what had to happened. The reason it did not get 5 stars from me despite it truly being worth reading is that it could of involve the other characters more. Overall, this book is definitely part of the SF utopian trilogy...We-Past, Brave New World-Present, 1984-Future. "

    " This is a pioneering SF work. If you every wondered where Orwell and Huxley got their inspiration, here it is. "

    " does some really cool stuff with language and sentence construction "

    " The ur-dystopia. With all due respect to Orwell, Rand, and Huxley, Zamyatin was there first. It's a shame that his name is not as well known as other authors of dystopian fiction; perhaps someone should republish this with a blurb mentioning it as the ancestor of The Hunger Games . "

    " The combination of mathematic lingo and dystopia make this uhr-dystopia arguably better than those which followed. "

    " probaly my favorite distopia. "

    " As a fan of dystopian literature in general, this book came to my attention later than it should have in my opinion, for it is the touchstone of the genre, having been the template for the other two major works in the genre, Huxley's "Brave New World" and Orwell's "1984". It seems that Orwell was quick to cite the influence of Zamyatin while Huxley scoffed at the notion, probably because his story was not merely influenced by "We" but actually resembled it much more closely than Orwell's story. That being said, I think that Huxley was a superior writer, as his story seems more coherent and organized, but then again, I have only read a translation of Zamyatin, which could be the issue with my criticism. But "We" is clearly he template for both of the stories, and was written many years before either, which makes this essential reading. I found the version I read to be a bit tedious, making the story seem a bit confusing at times, but still knowing that this was written so many years before the other two and clearly seeing how much of a template for the others it was makes it that much more readable and engaging. I would recommend this book as the one to read first, or at least in tandem with the others, in Junior High or High school student reading. But it was still good for this adult to read as well. Read this at all costs! "

    " Great find. Short but complex. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joel | 11/2/2013

    " Goofy Dystopia, a bit on the melodramatic side. "

    " Simply great book. Scraming of humanity and freedom. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven Beales | 9/14/2013

    " Prescient and poignant book by the revolutionary Bolshevik Yevgeny Zamayatin that so accurately foresaw all the coming horrors of the Stalinist regime when written in 1921. The first book to be banned by the Soviet regime and the classic that inspired 1984 and Brave New World. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 3/2/2013

    " A fantastic precursor to Orwell's 1984, with less of the pace but more of the maths! "

    " Beautifully written dystopic novel. "

    " One of my favourite dystopias. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue Tincher | 11/6/2012

    " Cool book about a Big Brother-type future country "OneState"--written in 1920, before George Orwell's 1984 and the rest... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 A | 7/17/2012

    " A dystopian novel but I preferred Atlas Shrugged. "

    " The nearly-undisputed godfather of dystopian science fiction provides an effective allegory of the consequences of social control through a unique narration dependent on rules and mathematics, though its plot ultimately falls short of its superior successors like 1984 and Brave New World. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rodolfo | 5/29/2012

    " A fantastic dystopian novel, and a brilliant Fall-of-a-believer narrative. "
