1984 by George Orwell
"War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength."

     1984 follows the protagonist, Winston Smith, in his dystopian superstate of Oceania. In this alternate past, the government, known as the Party, monitors everything every citizen does at any given time using two-way televisions known as telescreens. Can Winston fight back against the party when the past, present, and future are alterable and people can be erased?


What did I think?

     The book was very interesting and thought provoking. It's scary to think that a society like this could have existed in a different tangent of history. Whenever I had time to read, this book was very hard to put down. Although confusing at some points, it has a solid story and wonderful description.
