1984

This classic by George Orwell made phrases like "Big Brother" and "Thought Police" part of our national vocabulary. It's a haunting tale of conformity and identity set during a time when the government controls not only information, but individual thought and memory as well. A common man, Winston Smith, joins anunderground brotherhood that fights against the Republic - he's an enemy of the state. The novel follows his rebellion, imprisonment, torture, and re-education. It's a compelling book full of subtle (and not so subtle) warnings about the power of government and the importance of personal freedom. A haunting and thoughtprovoking read. 294 pgs, pb.
