      A one of a kind dystopian novel, such literature was unheard of in the Soviet Union. In the eyes of the government and the people, We mocked the communist regime and presented an unlikable image of the communist future that the country was eagerly fighting for.

        Russians, on the other hand, aren’t going to let a little thing like your disinterest keep them from being your boyfriend.
