Waterstones Says

Suppressed for decades by the Soviet authorities, Zamyatin's astonishing vision of a futuristic society where free will and creativity are ruthlessly stamped out influenced both 1984 and Brave New World.

'The best single work of science fiction yet written' Ursula K. Le Guin

The dystopian masterwork that inspired George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, We depicts a futuristic totalitarian society, 'OneState', where humans have become numbers. Suppressed in Russia for decades, it is a chilling vision of a world enslaved by technology.

'Zamyatin's parable looked forward to climate change and surveillance culture ... to peer into its future is to see modernity's reflection gazing darkly back' Economist

MEDIA REVIEWS
The best single work of science fiction yet written -- Ursula K. Le Guin
We is a shapely work of the imagination. As the first major anti-utopian fiction it famously stood both the Soviet Union and the Wellsian scientific romance upside down. * Kirkus *

Be warned - this is a reprint which has a number of typographical errors. Some are obvious (e.g. "burn" is printed as "bum"), but many others may not be. There is even one page where several lines...
