Day of the Oprichnik: A NovelDay of the Oprichnik: A Novel by Vladimir Sorokin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A disturbing short novel, a mix of Fahrenheit 451 and A Clockwork Orange set in the Russia of the very near future. It follows a day in the life of an oprichnik, an enforcer and confidante of the czar. Darkly humorous while also being terrifying and imaginative.
