Part #2 pg22-68
Part to of the book is very interesting. We have more of a taste of what is happening at the camp, and we can feel how the people feel in the Soviet camp. So, the first quote I thought that was very descriptfull was this one: "Attention, prisioners. Marching orders must be strictly obeyed. Keep track of your ranks. No hurrying, keep a steady pace. No talking. Keep your eyes fixed ahead and your hands behind your backs. A step to the right or left is considered an attempt of escape and the escort has orders to shot without warning. Leading guards, on the double."
Here you can see the way they are rigid in the Soviet camp. Before in the book, they didnt really mention how it was to be out there in the camp, and how the training was. Now, Alexander Solzhenitsyn has shown how the generals are. I personally would like to be there. I would do the same thing that Shukhov did, get sick, but intentionally. Going back to the quote, you can really see how they were violent. Specially in the part he mentions "a step to the right or left is considered an attempt of escape and the escort has orders to shot without warning. Leading guards, on the double." What I mostly like about this quote, is that the author shows, and not tells. He shows how they are violent, he shows how it was rigid, but he never said it was.
Moving on through the book, I also found this quote: "If you suffer, its not for murder, theft, or sorcery, nor for infringing the rights of others. But if anyone suffers as a Christian, he should feel it no disgrace, but confess that name to the honor of god."
In this quote, you can see how the people in the Soviet camp, were really into religion. They are really spiritual, and they believe that they are always in the hands of the lord. You can also see, how that if they suffer, or something terrible has happened to you, its basically not your fault. So, they always go to war with that on their mind.
