The question was "novels about communism." Nobody yet has mentioned a
novel about communism.
Let me suggest two Soviet novels about communism--about the
contradiction between the professed communist values of the counter-
revolutionary Stalinist regime and the realities of life as
experienced by those trying to live in accordance with communist
values. Both eminently suitable for young adults, both really
excellent novels for all ages.

--Children of the Arbat, by Anatolii Rybakov
This cosmos did none of gods or men make, but it
always was and is and shall be: an everlasting fire,
kindling in measures and going out in measures.
