Nineteen Eighty Four by George Orwell was a classic one. I recommend any human being in the world to read this book and inhale every word deeply inside.

It is sad that the fictional reign Orwell had written about – a regime based on hate and brain-washing which are used for the purpose of attaining POWER – is actually enacted in some dark places in the far east and in Africa… and its buds can be seen flourishing on some of the more developed countries along the world. A regime of falsified propaganda against foreigners and other religions. A regime of demonizing any other way or belief than the reigning one. It really hurt me to know this is actually a non-fiction, dressed as one…

What I would like to take out of this book is what I can actually control in my life. Start noticing important aspects of my life that I have been taking for granted – my dignity, my history, my freedom of thoughts and feelings and believes and my love and compassion towards other beings.
