George Orwell - 1984

Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell’s chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, Orwell’s narrative is timelier than ever. 1984 presents a startling and haunting vision of the world, so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions—a legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time.

Comment: This is a book everyone should read. Not because the extreme settings will happen but because everything described would happen if we're not careful.
It's a book to make you think and wonder how much psychology is within all the reasoning behind what we are led to believe. Nothing is black and white and this book is like a warning bell to the fact we accept everything and others hide that with shining commercials and misunderstood explanations.
I won't talk about the storyline, which is interesting while reading, the "fun" part is to make up our own minds about things as we read.
I felt many things while reading, and I fear somethings are indeed going to happen, not like it is in the book, of course, but still in a subtle way. We are already programmed t think about certain subjects in a particular way because it suits others.
Anyway, this is a good reflection on the difference between good and bad and mostly, on how much power anyone or anyhting sould have.
