    1. Welcome to dystopia, soviet style If you like your satire roasted to well charred black comedy, this novel weighing in at over four hundred pages will be a memorable feast I laughed so hard reading The Fur Hat, I wanted to laugh even harder Moscow 2042 gave me the chance Vladimir Voinovich fans of the world unite I join your ranks, comrades It s 1982 and we re in Munich with exiled Russian author Vitaly Kartsev when he learns from a friend Lufthansa Airlines offers flights back and forth through [...]

    2. One of the problems of life is that it is not very inventive Sometimes life is terribly embarrassed by this and shamelessly borrows from art I remember being in Russia in the mid 1990s, about the time of the first Chechen war, watching television, which made a change from loosing games of chess to ten year olds with ever decreasing grace Anyhow on the television there was a broadcast showing an Orthodox priest at a military airbase sprinkling Holy Water on war planes The odd thing about this was [...]

    3. Moscow 2042is a perfect example of dystopia, which is not another metaphor of pubescence and funny and scary instead The book is written in 1986 Future of Russia is depicted like that in it the Moscow country is ruled by Genialissimo who is Church patriarch at the same time , former KGB general who managed to accumulate all powers by the party named Communist party of State Security basically a group of former officials, kgb members and priests Genialissimo in reality has no power, the country i [...]

    4. But if the people are the majority, then I should tell you that the people are stupidier than any one person It s much difficult to convince one individual of an idiotic idea than an entire people Lyoshka Bukashev, the GenialissimoHuman nature is so low Vitaly KartsevBoth quotes are from Vladimir Voinovich s novel Moscow 2042, and though not funny and quite true about the human condition the novel is a whirlwind of humor The novel is political and human satire Voinovich wrote in the Afterword o [...]

    5. A damn funny Satire of late Soviet Russian ineptitude Think Jaroslav Hasek meets 1984 The story takes its dear time getting started But once you reach the year 2042, it just explodes with madness Voinovich has a bone to pick with everyone He could almost make a living out of ridiculing Solzhenitsyn alone.

    6. I m not a student of either Russian politics or literature,, so I m sure plenty of the deeper meaning and possibly the jokes passed me by on this one That being said, I m enough a child of the Cold War and Voinovich is enough of a writer that I didn t feel lost or let down My sister asked what I was reading I showed it to her and said, It s funny as hell It s a lot funnier than it looks from the cover She, of course, replied, It would have to be Moscow 2042 came out in 1986, written just a few y [...]

    7. The book is fantastic Really caused a lot of public disturbance by not being able to not laugh loudly when reading it I guess I found my favorite Russian writer considering that this book seemed perfect and isn t even his most popular work.Written shortly before the fall of the USSR this book is a satire talking about the narrator based on the author going on a time machine trip to Moscow of 2042 to see what the future brings it and the communism It is hilarious and does a great job to parody th [...]

    8. One of the best dystopian novels i have ever read This one and the novel We surely give us another type of vision about this theme.In this novel it was possible to live a little bit of the Utopian dream of the Comunism regime and give us the perfect vision of what is happening nowadays, in each ever regime we are living on Old people that don t want to leave the power, control of the masses, distortion of reality and the masterpiece of being able to make people focus on futile things other than [...]

    9. Brilliant comic satire Moscow of the future sounds just like Moscow of today and Moscow of the 1980s In 2042, Communism has become a parody of itself i.e state run newspapers are published as rolls of toilet paper , a KGB general is in charge of things, a cult of personality is in full swing, and Russia is surrounded by enemies And, as always, the search is on for a bearded mystic on horseback who can ride to the rescue It s easy to see why this book was banned in the Soviet Union when it was pu [...]

    10. I enjoyed Moscow 2042 when I read it years ago in translation and enjoyed it again this time around in the original Voinovich is a master of combining high and low humor in political satire There s on my blog here.

    11. Brilliant satire, playing with the time travel paradox the narrator finds that everyone in the future Soviet society is giving him special care and attention because they have all read the book he wrote when he returned to the 1980s Vicious satirical portrait of Alexander Solzenitsyn.

    12. A fine satire that answers a question I never knew I had What if Vonnegut was a former communist Really enjoyed the book, it was long but well done, so that wasn t much of an issue It was also pretty funny at points, which is a plus in this type of literature.

    13. This is what I call a good satire apparently intended to provide a vaccination against pink dreams about a perfect communist society, but he somehow managed to do something much bigger and closer to reality our today s reality.From the begining, you read the book as something quite stupid and non serious, because the author himself presents it as a stupid and non serious story, but at some point you start to feel scared and really disgusted as the events and remind you something hideous not on [...]

    14. A funny book that looks at what might be or what could have been The real key to this book is that as a Russian migr Vladimir Voinovich understands that the Rus, those who were born and raised between the Dnieper and Urals, North to the white sea and South to the Caucasians, need a monarch, dictator, premier, a strong central leader but they don t need want nor desire actual Democracy as the West sees it I m not talking Stalinist Soviet Union but a central dictator That s what the people want Th [...]

    15. While long winded, Moscow 2042 is a witty, sardonic and eerily prophetic satire of Russian politics and the follies of utopian thinking and planning.

    16. Liked it, although the idea at the time of writing was not new already and it s not so hard for a person who has lived in a USSR to write about this country I think thing i liked the most is the line about Sim Simych, showing another crazy extreme to a world of communism.Author becomes annoying sometimes and too typical for a late USSR emigrant writer in using things which were tabooed for him, like with unnecessary sex scenes and excessive obsession with the secondary product theme.

    17. Reading contemporary Russian political satire is certainly strange I enjoyed it heartily, if for the drolling first hundred pages I can recommend it to those who have need of something between Bulgakov and Solzhenitsyn.

    18. Wow This one took months of inactivity, so I only have vague memories of a promising beginning I am not well read in satire After a school reading of Candide, I believe there was nothing So, I have a feeling, an inkling that this was a very good book but I truly don t know I do know that it was too remote, too dry, too clinical for me to truly get into it I could see the humor and the tragedy in the humor but not enough to internalize it and laugh or cry I found myself simply reading i [...]

    19. This is a novel built on a fascinating concept that doesn t quite stand up to the test of time Our main character is a Russian writer exiled to Munich during the early 80 s He happens upon a deal from Lufthansa for a flight to Moscow in the year 2042 Throughout this bizarre journey, our writer bears witness to the outrageous society that has bloomed over the intermittent 60 years, as the Soviet Union has evolved into a dystopian cult of personality Voinovich plays around with some fun meta narra [...]

    20. This one took me a long time to read Partially because I waited until it was almost out of renewals to really get into it.It s so bizarre, weird and fascinating.Written by Soviet exile Vladimir Voinovich in 1986, about taking a time machine 60 years into the future from Munich, Germany in 1982 to Moscow in 2042.I don t want to give away much, but he goes to an incredibly bizarre future of communism.Where all secondary matter is primary matter, i.e it s all shit.I m glad the Soviet Union collapse [...]

    21. A bit too much of a particular time to remain as enjoyable as it might have been That time being the final moments of the Brezhnev era, and its life support continuation under Andropov Chernenko Probably not helped by the fact that it feels perhaps 100 pages too long, and the afterword where the author discusses how political changes in Moscow have rendered it even relevant an afterword written in 1990 Oops That said, the Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn parody remains hilarious.
