Nineteen Eighty-Four

George Orwell
Nineteen Eighty-Four Cover

Good but not engrossing


1984 is really about the effective manufacturing of an automation. It describes, in great detail via a monologue, the workings of such a totalitarian regime. Such a regime is shown to be more effective than any other regimes in real life (Stalin, Nazis et al).

Read it if you really know what you are getting into.
