Week 6 (Pages 169-178)
I connect the story of this book to Nelson Mandela's story life. I do agree that they were both very distinct characters, however I can see some similarities. They were both arrested for unjust reasons and also because of the difficult situation South Africa and Russia were facing. Nelson Mandela got arrested for a very long time and when he got out he became president of his country. After one day in prision Aleksandr also say the bright side of being arrested. The exact same thing happened to Nelson Mandela. To conclude, they were both very unhappy for being arrested, but specially because the difficult situation their country was facing.
