bookshelves: bigger-picture, essential, politics
Read in January, 1987

Perhaps one of my favorite books. I've read it many times and each time, I gleen something new from its pages. Personally, I think it's essential for anyone interested in the world beyond the end of their nose. From how history works, especially in our country, to how politics works, 1984 speaks so much to all of us.

Like 2001 and many other books, it can be surface read for the story. Even with surface reading, the reader should be able to pull out life lessons. Subsequent readings will reveal the depth and truth of what Orwell saw as our future. Savvy readers will see how it is our present.
