George Orwell - 1984 is one of the best books i've read in ages. His ability to predict a future world of Socialist controlled era. Oceania which encompasses the Americas and the United Kingdom. Big Brother controls the people of London through Telescreens which hear and see all that the inhabitants do. The Thought Police through a complex torture method reduce people to shells to obey the principles of Big Brother. The world is in a constant war to use up resources, which can be mass produced thanks to the industrial revolution, and stop an increase in living standards for all which would remove the caste system that exists. This Book is a definite must read.
