Darkness at Noon dramatises the Moscow show trials and the elimination of the Bolshevik old guard by "No. Told primarily from the point of view of N. Rubashov a fictitious merging of real Bolsheviks known to Koestler. It also describes in detail life brief as it was in political prison its daily routines and the methods used to extract confessions. Unfortunately the PDF was one of those weirdly squashed formats, it still contains the complete novel though with an unusual Anglicisation of Russian names. I should also point out that despite being written from the point of view of an Old Bolshevik Darkness is not an apologist tract for the Trotsky's and Bukharins. Rubashov while having the best intentions has in the name of Party service done some very callous and cruel things in his past and its not until after he finds himself in prison that he fully acknowledges his real sins.

Also by Arthur Koestler. Rubashov has been a high official in the government but has been betrayed and brought to the end of his life.
He has flashbacks from his past and dialogues with fellow prisoners. The book could be read many times and is an excellent work for college classes dealing with dictatorships.
The novel was published in and has become a modern classic. Highly recommended. This one book is perhaps the most damning indictment of the one party system, the Soviet system, and the "compulsion to conform" ever penned.
Poe couldn't have done better, as far as bleakness of plot goes. It's difficult to even relay the impression this work leaves on the reader, as it's subtle and psychological, yet devoid of hope and achingly dark Sort of like being in Hell while still on earth; every action judged, every innocent mistake turned into a plot against the state. Anyone who thinks totalitarian systems have any human virtue should read this book. Koestler was once enamoured of the Soviet system but was, as was Orwell, honest enough to admit he'd been mistaken as the poisonous orchid of the USSR spread its foetid tendrils into every aspect of existence Sitting with him in his cell, we see the world from his point of view and experience his resignation and rationalization.
We accompany him on his journey to false confession and death. This is a book that teaches much to those willing to listen.
Sadly, I fear, that with the downfall of communism it has been relegated to the shelf, as if the final judgment on that flawed exercise has rendered it unnecessary. Nothing could be further from the truth. Political policies born of self-delusion, intolerance and paranoia are with us now as much as ever.
Koestler has shown us the dire consequences of allowing such policies to take hold.
Shame on us if we ignore the eloquent warning he has left us. Hardcover Verified Purchase. Do ends justify the means, or should the means be justified in and of of themselves?
I think that is the most pertinent question this book should make us ponder. The life of the protagonist, who earlier believed the former, but realized over time the truth in the latter, is what this book presents. Of course, I have heard some people say that Animal Farm is a book about pigs on a farm; and likewise the point of this book too will be missed, if you don't have some background of the Stalinist takeover of Russia.
