One day in the life of Ivan Denisovich

   
 

         "One day in the life of Ivan Denisovich" by Alexander Solzhenitsyn, I'll have to be honest with this one, I had never heard of this book until I saw it on a reading list for Honors English. It was an Okay book since it was translated from its native Russian, some of the words didn't make sense but that's ok. This book illustrates what life was like in a Russian prison camp after world war II. The main character Ivan  Denisovich is put into one of these camps  after  being a POW from the war. I think this book does well to show a whole day using a 144 pages. Although some parts were boring, like when it explains how he eats his meals, but overall for a book that I had to read I think it was good, but if I were to choose a book just for fun, this wouldn't be one of them but over all I give it a 70% --El Coco
