Nineteen Eighty Four Orwell, George May 6, 2003

Orwell takes the reader deep into the paranoia of living under a totalitarian oligarchical government. Phrases like “doublespeak”, “thought police” and “big brother” come straight from the pages of this superb masterpiece and are still a part of our present day vocabulary which goes to show just how relevant this work still is - chilling!
