1984 by George Orwell

19841984 by George Orwell, published in 1949, is the signature dystopian novel. Inspiring later literature like The Hunger Games, Orwell’s frightening story of a totalitarian government and their oppression of the people strikes a chord with the political fears of people in the 20th century and today. A fascinating and unforgettable read, in ways reminiscent of Bradbury (i.e. Fahrenheit 451). I read was both entertained and disturbed by it.
