Description

‘The best single work of science fiction yet written’ Ursula K. Le Guin

The dystopian masterwork that inspired George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, We depicts a futuristic totalitarian society, ‘OneState’, where humans have become numbers. Suppressed in Russia for decades, it is a chilling vision of a world enslaved by technology.

‘Zamyatin’s parable looked forward to climate change and surveillance culture … to peer into its future is to see modernity’s reflection gazing darkly back’ Economist

Publisher Review

We is a shapely work of the imagination. As the first major anti-utopian fiction it famously stood both the Soviet Union and the Wellsian scientific romance upside down. * Kirkus * The best single work of science fiction yet written -- Ursula K. Le Guin
