5.0 von 5 Sternen Best of Dystopian Trilogy, 3. April 2000
Von 
Christopher D. Helmkamp (Falls Church, VA) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Zamyatin's WE, like Huxley's Brave New World and Orwell's 1984, is a classic science-fiction novel that unmasks the chilling realities of the erosion of individuality. What makes Zamyatin's account more compelling, however, is that he wrote the novel from within the fledgeling Socialist state of 1920's Russia (it wasn't even published there until 1988). Therefore, Zamyatin can lay claim to a firsthand understanding of the fallacies of the Soviet collective unlike the eccentric British intellectuals Orwell and Huxley. Although Zamyatin's language, at times, is a bit peculiar by nature, this Twentieth Century Classics translation is perhaps the easiest to understand, as the translator shied away from word use that would not register smoothly in the mind of a contemporary English reader. If you have read Brave New World or 1984, you will certainly want to compliment them by reading this excellent masterpiece in 20th century European literature!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Need to Read, 24. Januar 1999
There are three books that everyone should read somewhere along the line: "Brave New World", "1984" and "We". The first two are the better known of the works, but to fully understand them you must see where they are coming from. "We" is the father of both -- the other two works explore themes only touched upon in "We", but they do not make the ideas in "We" obsolete. Separately each of these works is wonderfully insightful, yet somehow incomplete... On a side note, if you notice the discussion about 2*2=4 in both "We" and "1984", don't huff and puff that Orwell stole his ideas from Zamyatin, because Zamyatin first read many of 'his' ideas in Dostoevsky's "Notes From the Underground".

5.0 von 5 Sternen So good I learned Russian for it, 19. Juni 1998
Von 
Yup, that's right. Some learn French to read the original Baudelaire; I'm a smidge weird, so that's what I did. Previous reviewers have stated that this book condemns Stalinism or Leninism or totalitarianism (the list goes on and on and on), and while they are right in their assessments, they neglect to mention that it really does a number on 1. suburbian mass consciousness 2. the classic emotionless stereotype and 3. the idea that medicine can solve all our troubles. Not only would I highly recommend it in English, if you speak Russian (or have a passing interest in doing so), I'd recommend it there too.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Classic, 10. Dezember 2013
WE is a true classic and an extraordinary novel in many senses. It was the inspiration behind George Orwell's book 1984, and other subsequent books of the utopian/dystopian sub-genre, such as Union Moujik, Brave World. The age-old conflict between individual self and the collective being that man has grappled with in our efforts to become more human is treated beautifully in thus book. What is peculiar about it is that the author never allowed politics to dominate. Overall, the Utopian-Fantasy is a recommended read.
