Industry of Souls, The : Reviewed

Author:Martin Booth
Reading Level (Conceptual):Sophisticated readers
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Sophisticated readers
Year of publication:1998

Well, it's not physically fat, but it is fat in ideas. The gentle words of the plot quietly convey both the great good and the unspeakable, unthinking evil that humans do to each other. The story of an innocent British citizen who is freed after laboring for 25 years in a Soviet gulag. By the time Alexander Bayliss leaves the gulag,he does not forgive and does not forget, but accepts that good and bad can come to all people for no reason. This is a great book to read in times of sorrow.
