    One thought on “We”

    1. George Orwell, you poser. You punk. You . . . thief! I heard that you had read this before writing 1984. But I didn't expect Zamyatin's writing to be so superior to yours. And it is. It is so much more intriguing than your sterile work. D-503 is so much the better character than Winston. And you rob I-333 of her power and respect by demoting Julia to the role of a sexual object that stirs Winston to action. Yes, D-503 is stirred to action by I-333, but she's the political activist, the intellige [...]

    2. It's been a decade since I first read Zamyatin's masterpiece, and even though this book remains unchanged for almost a century now, the person who read it is not. A decade later, I'm a very different person, no longer the wide-eyed undergraduate who thought she had the world all figured out. Physically, I still look under twenty (thanks, youthful genetics!) but mentally time has added a bit more life experience, an overdose of cynicism, a few collisions with the rougher edges of the universe, an [...]

    3. Let’s play “Guess That Groundbreaking Novel”! Question: A party functionary who is recording his experiences in a journal lives in a future fascist society which maintains its solidarity by compulsory attendance at public events dominated by a remote, all-powerful leader. He meets a woman, a secret rebel who expresses her revolutionary impulses through her sexuality, and the two of them carry on an affair in room in an old house which symbolizes what life was like in the days before the ne [...]

    4. We by Yevgeny Zamyatin is a must read for fans and students of the Dystopian genre. Published in 1920, before Brave New World and well before 1984 (which could even be considered a second generation 1984 as Orwell began his seminal work after reading a French translation of We) Zamyatin’s vision is well before his time. Writing in response to his experiences with the Bolsheviks but without a direct link to the communists, We takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where pockets of “civilized [...]

    5. The prototype of dystopian fiction - a vivisection of monolithic faith and cruelty in the name of “We”!Dystopian science fiction never analyses the future, even though it is the supposed topic of the novel. It looks at the past, and follows the road that humanity has already embarked on, to its logical next step. When Zamyatin wrote “We”, the society he knew was rapidly changing, breaking apart, one authoritarian structure was being replaced with another, through the means of a violent c [...]

    6. Thoughts:- If it was utterly up to me, I'd actually think about classing this more as a "utopia" rather than a "dystopia" understanding that they're ultimately the same thing.- Living in glass houses is the most terrifying part of this novel.- I-330 is basically a manic pixie dream girl.- The commentary on the Russian Revolution and Socialism are heavy, bro.- Zamyatin had a FASCINATING life that very much influences this book.- The writing style wasn't my thing. It was by no means bad, but it ju [...]

    7. Sci-fi's in my top three least favorite fiction genres! However, this one is thankfully not Brave New World, has traces of madness and poetry both, and possesses the Waltmanesque quality of being organic, though the theme of Dystopian Machinery should be inevitably super-structured. The protagonist's POV is impressive. As builder of a space ship that will provide aliens (or: us) with an account of the glass metropolis (see: communism), he transitions from zombie troglodyte to someone infected wi [...]

    8. Zamyatin's theme here is the impossibility of being fully human in totalitarian society. His future is not technologically superior. It contains little of what we'd call high-tech. This is still very much the age of steam. The story seems both forward-looking and dated, almost paradoxically so. The mood it inspires is rather like that of Fritz Lang's classic Metropolis. I liked that. It was like finding this artefact of world lit. Another piece in the long history of dystopias—and one that inf [...]

    9. A city of glass, 1,000 years in the future, domed, with a green wall, to keep out all the undesirable, primitive life forms. Animal, human, vegetable or insectA clean and sparkling place, for its millions of citizens, everything and everyone, has a schedule, the perfect "One State". No privacy, people have numbers for names, they dress (light blue uniforms) , and eat the same food, live in small, sparse apartments, which are transparent. No drinking or smoking, even sex regulated by, yes, an app [...]

    10. Well, I can see why We by Yevgeny Zamyatin was 'problematic' for the Soviet regime. It unequivocally debunks the utopian collective ideal. Communism (in practice, if not in theory) demands each of its fellow-travelers to exist on a purely atomic level. Good, responsible communists are mere corpuscles in a bland, unfulfilling social body. Sure, economic equality seems like a nice ideal, right? A cute ideal, even? But aside from being virtually impracticable (because humans will always be human), [...]

    11. I had noticed 1984 pop up in my feed and more chatter about that and Brave New World in the media, which my thoughts upstream towards their source Zamyatin's 1924 novel We. Zamyatin's book as is the way of books, did not pop out of the void but is itself in dialogue with older books, in particular I felt Dostoevsky's Notes from the Underground and the Bible. For those afraid of spoilers, you were better off avoiding this review altogether. For if, persons unknown, credit Zamyatin with writing th [...]

    12. We: A classic warning against political tyranny from Russia that remains relevant today(Also posted at Fantasy Literature)Yevgeny Zamyatin’s We (1924) is widely recognized as a direct influence on George Orwell when he composed his dystopian masterpiece Nineteen Eighty-Four, and there are certainly strong signs of influence in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World as well. Zamyatin edited Russian translations of works of Jack London and H.G. Wells, and We can be viewed as a reaction against the op [...]

    13. This book has universal five stars among my Friend's and Follower's reviews, but I'm skeptical. Having read more than two dystopian novels in my life, what does this have to offer that's new, besides simply being the first? I get that totalitarian governments and loss of individual expression is bad, but what else?(That wasn't rhetorical– someone who's read and loved this please explain to me the benefits of this one.)---Well, let's find out.---I started getting into adult literature—as man [...]

    14. " Η κυβέρνηση ( ή ο ανθρωπισμός)  απαγόρευε τη θανατική ποινή για έναν άνθρωπο, αλλά επέτρεπε τη σταδιακή δολοφονία εκατομμυρίων. Το να σκοτώνεις -δηλαδή ν' αφαιρέσεις 50 χρόνια από το άθροισμα όλων των ανθρώπινων ζωών  ήταν έγκλημα, αλλά το ν' αφαιρέσεις από το άθροισμα όλων τ [...]

    15. This is the "granddaddy" of the modern dystopian novel, the book that influenced Huxley's Brave New World, Rand's Anthem, and Orwell's 1984: Yevgeny Zamyatin's We (1924). I've read it repeatedly and taught it, as well, and I always discover something new in the novel each time I turn to it. It's a brilliantly chilling depiction of a futuristic totalitarian regime that organizes its people's lives with almost scientific precision, as seen through the troubled eyes of one of its leading citizens. [...]

    16. We have witnessed Totalitarianism prevail in different countries of the World. We have studied its origins, pondered upon its dominion and contemplated the consequences with respect to its bearing on the human civilization and its future. That it still exists, casting a portentous shadow over the lot of people pruned off their rights as humans, divested not only of their freedom to live but also to think, is a travesty that discredits the human advancement. That the beast is still tamed to unlea [...]

    17. Read again to discuss on SFF Audio; will link to podcast when it is posted.This book has not been on my radar for long, but when something is considered to be "the best single work of science fiction yet written" (Ursula K. Le Guin) and the precursor of 1984 and Brave New World, not to mention the majority of current science fiction (Bruce Sterling introduction), I knew I couldn't put it off.An interesting historical note - it was published in England (1921) long before it was published in Russi [...]

    18. This review was written in 2003 for another website. I read the Clarence Brown Penguin edition of the book. I remember almost nothing about the book today, like the fact that the book takes place on a spaceship.My alphabetical reading list is done. Yevgeny Zamyatin’s dystopian novel We takes up the tail end of my journey through the alphabet. This dismal piece of writing (and I’m not talking about the dystopian setting) is a perfect end for the self-imposed restrictions on my reading choices [...]

    19. bbc/programmes/b0076l2sDescription: In a post-revolutionary future, OneState is ruled according to the principles of rationality. The penalty for dissent is death. D-503, the chief engineer of the state, meets the beautiful 1-330. Her initial intentions seem innocent, but soon D starts to question her identity and indeed his own.The first great dystopian novel of the 20th century, written in secret in early Soviet Russia by Yevgeni Zamyatin. Stars Anton Lesser as D-503, Joanna Riding as I-330, D [...]

    20. A thousand years in our future, D-503 is just one number among many in the One State. The One State is a city, a society, that revolves not around the individual but around the collective we, like a hive, with the Benefactor in God-like status at the centre. D-503 works as a constructor on the Integral, the ship that will take their ideology and philosophy of life to other planets, to civilise and free other species. When an article in the State Gazette calls for poems, manifestos etc. to go in [...]

    21. Buddy Read with Megha, Anu, Adita, Partho and Rohisa.Well this is the book which inspired all the dystopian novels that came along, especially 1984. You can imagine my excitement that I was finally going to read the father of all dystopian novels.I have to start by making a comparison to 1984, there is a shocking similarity between the worlds- (view spoiler)[The controlled environment, the whole story from the perspective of a protagonist scared to go against rules, a woman whose involvement mak [...]

    22. Πολύ κρίμα που δεν γνώριζα αυτό το βιβλίο όταν είχα βουτήξει στα δυστοπικά βιβλία πολλά πολλά χρόνια πριν. Ο Ζαμιάτιν στήνει το καλούπι που ακολούθησε πιστά ο Οργουελ στο 1984 αλλά κ σχεδόν κάθε καλλιτέχνης που χρησιμοποίησε μια δυστοπία για να σχολιάσει τα κακώς κείμενα της [...]

    23. نحن إحدى كلاسيكيات روايات الدستوبيا، حيث يسيطر نظام واحد على البشر، ويوهمهم بأن السعادة تكمن في فقدان الهوية الفردية والاندماج في المجموع، كتبت هذه الرواية في 1921 م مما يجعلها رائدة في مجالها، وسابقة لرائعة جورج أورويل 1984، ولكن ما جعل رواية أورويل أشهر وأكثر قراءة هي صعوبة ( [...]

    24. Buddy read with Megha, Roh, Adita, Parthi, Nameeta, and Poonam. I can see why this book is so famous. I can see how Huxley, Bradbury, and Orwell were inspired by him. I can see how this book inspired every other future dystopian novel. However, it was rather underwhelming. Maybe it was this particular translation, but I felt like the focus here was more on the language, than on the theme. While that worked for Bradbury, it doesn't work here. I know I need to review this and others in full, just [...]

    25. Published in 1924 after the Russian Revolution, "We" is an early dystopian novel that influenced Orwell's "1984", and Huxley's "Brave New World". It is set a thousand years in the future in the totalitarian OneState where people are identified by numbers instead of names, and wear identical uniforms. OneState is ruled by the Benefactor, and the Guardians spy on the citizens who live in superglass apartments. The only time the blinds can be drawn is during assigned hours for sexual activity. OneS [...]

    26. Decades ahead of its time. I don't understand how it is possible for a person to write these kinds of emotions so succinctly. Shut up and take my stars.We caught me during a bad week - worksplosion, hormonesplosion, general worriedness about the state of the world. I don't want to talk about it in superlatives, but I think this book has been one of the good things to happen to me lately. Certainly it's one of the things I want to rememberEVIOUSLY -Fun fact: this is the first book I ever bought m [...]

    27. Como estou farta deste livro! Se soubessem como eu estou farta.Prefiro utopias, meus amigos, às distopias.Da feliz média aritmética, da integração do zero ao infinito, deste caminhar pelos lados do triângulo e não pela hipotenusa, tudo me aborrece pela incompreensão e tédio.Li 170 páginas; talvez, um dia, volte ao livro.

    28. Questo romanzo è la madre di tutte le distopie. Sappiamo che è servito di ispirazione diretta a:*Il mondo nuovo (1932)*Antifona (1938)*1984 (1949)*Piano meccanico (1952)*I Reietti dell'altro pianeta (1974)il che è già di per sé un ottima recensione. Peccato che in Italia non sia famoso come Orwell o Huxley.Consiglio anche, prima o dopo la lettura, di esplorare la vita dell'autore su Google. IT ha qualche dettaglio ma si trovano più notizia in inglese, anche perché questa è la prima ling [...]

    29. We came before Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World and George Orwell’s 1984, and Yevgeny Zamyatin proved himself a master of the dystopian novel so popular today. The novel tells of the protagonist D-503 coming-of-age, becoming more and more aware of his desires, imagination and individuality, until the Operation returns him to the collective. In We, the One-State removes its citizens’ individuality by assigning alphanumerical designations to them and so it dehumanizes them more than the gover [...]

    30. Yevgeny Zamyatin wrote his seminal dystopian novel We (1921) based on his personal experiences during the two Russian revolutions (1905 and 1917) and the first World War. The book ended influencing dystopian authors like Aldous Huxley and George Orwell. This book not only influenced the dystopian genre but could also be the influence towards the post-apocalyptic genre as this was set in a world where all was wiped out but “0.2% of the earth's population”. The book is set in ‘One State’ w [...]
