Portrays life in a future time when a totalitarian government watches over all citizens and directs all activities.
This is my favourite book of all time. I'd recommend it to everyone old and young. Much more eloquent and creative than most of what passes for "literature" today.
Though I am loving the proliferation of dystopian literature today, I have to say, this one is the father of them all. A classic. Don't wait to read it for school, it's totally scary and awesome.
Deep reminder about the dangers of security and government. It is an amazing, in-depth explanation of what our world could become.
Epic in message and impact, this book has helped shaped Western perspectives on politics since it came out in the 1940's. While not the book for those looking for happy-endings, it is perfect if you are looking for an in-depth examination of human society and psychology.
