    1. I found this book (the original Charles Scribner's and Sons 1946 hardcover edition) in the Harbin Hot Springs library, to which I solemnly intend to return it. It is a mind-blowing story, told by a man who rose to near the very top of the Soviet Party and then defected to the US in the mid 1940's. You must look me in the eye and promise to READ IT RIGHT NOW. The translator is not named, but he is clearly a superb writer; the book is gripping, even though - I won't lie - it is long. The editing a [...]


    2. لكي تعرف ما قد يكون مسار حياتك عندما تكون شخصا منتجا، في ظل حكومة تقمع الحرية، و تقلل من أهمية الفرد، و تتظاهر بأنها تساوي بين الجميع، في حين أن الحقيقة هي أن أفراد المجتمع لا يجدون القمح، و الرؤساء يدخنون السيجار! لكي تعرف ما قد تصل إليه المبادئ من سامية، إلي ملطخه بدماء الأب [...]


    3. Kravchenko was one of the first defectors from the Soviet Union, in a time when defecting from the Soviet Union wasn't cool. It doesn't bring any new information on the situation in the Soviet Union, but it does point out a lot of the Soviet bureaucracy as well. In the last pages it does point out the American handling of the relations with the Soviet Union during the second world war: The Americans refrained from any criticism towards the Soviet Union, because of the Soviet sensitivity. The aut [...]


    4. Fantastic. It is an autobiography. Stalin is 10x Hitler. The closed society was very good at turning their own people against each other and creating such an environment of fear that nobody would dare speak out against the most insidious decisions from Moscow. I would read this again, and recommend it to anyone.


    5. This book was my grandfather's gift to my mom ,Reading such a heritage meant a lot to me especially when it belongs to a dear person ,.


    6. Please note - I read an abridged version of the book - only 240 pages not 560.I chose freedom, despite it's dreadful cover and the smell of dust emanating from my copy, was such a powerful book. It is the life of Victor Kravchenco. He describes how he became involved in the communist party and eventually became a most trusted member of the Soviet govenment.I would love to quote big sections of the book, but I will try and resist. Kravchenko was born in the Ukraine (when it was part of Tsarist Ru [...]


    7. La suerte de Victor Kravchenko –el diplomático soviético que, en 1944, desertó mientras estaba en Nueva York y luego escribió sus famosas memorias, I Chose Freedom– merece mencionarse aquí. Su libro, escrito en primera persona, fue el primer informe importante sobre los horrores del estalinismo, empezando con un detallado relato de la colectivización forzosa y del hambre en Ucrania, donde el propio Kravchenko –a principios de la década de los treinta todavía un verdadero creyente d [...]


    8. This book is an important read. It gives a wonderful first-hand account of a dark period of world history - communism in Russia. It was fascinating to read how the author embraced communism in his youth for noble reasons- to better the lives of his family and neighbors. You then see how the truth of it is slowly made known to him as he watches his family, faith, community, and nation destroyed. It made me think, "God bless America!". I think of Victor's story often and vow to never take our free [...]


    9. A powerful first-hand account of an apparatchik who survived the multiple Stalinist purges of the Communist party and Soviet leadership replete with echoes of words from the contemporary leftist political ranks uttered unknowingly of their prior life at the murderous hands of Josef Stalin.An important book for the reasonably well-informed reader interested in the manifestation of man's nature unbridled by the checks and balances of other men.


    10. This is a life-changer. It is well-written and compelling and made me really think about things that I take for granted. It also made me worry for our country, and the freedoms that we throw away for "Our Piece of the Pie". It is so hard to regain freedoms once lost. I got frustrated by the author's choices sometimes, but can't judge--I've always enjoyed freedom, safety, and plenty.


    11. Most eye opening part of this read was the way he describes how huge European and US misconceptions about life within the USSR were. Also a great description of how the slow realisation of Kravchenko about the true nature of Stalin's regime. Oh and where were all the female comrades in the top echelons?

    13. Like everything on my Red Scare shelf, this is awful propaganda. I just have to give them 3 stars so I can get recommendations for more awful propaganda because I have a problem.





    14. I was not expecting much from this book but it blew me away. The translation is very good such that it almost reads like a novel.A shocking look behind the curtain during the Stalin era.
