We, Yevgeny Zamyatin – an old, but chilling tale

Written in 1921, We is one of the very first dystopian novels written. In my study of dystopian literature, I had to read it. At the moment, I’m only at page 20 and chilled by the tale. It feels like Orwell read this and then used at least part of the plot.

I keep re-reading some of the passages, because they are chilling.

The video below lists a few of the passages.
