1984 - George Orwell, Erich Fromm I had to read 1984 by George Orwell, the story of a frightening dystopian world, for school (way back when) and I have reread it a few times over the years. The first time I read this book I cheered Winston on but I had a feeling I knew how it would end but hoped anyway throughout the book. I have recently reread it this past year and in watching the “politically correct” news speak, noticing all the camera’s recording my every move when I am out and about and with video game platforms and TVs having the ability to access the internet and able “see you” (think Xbox and web cams); the phrase “big brother is watching” is alive and well today and makes this novel even more frightening now than when it was written, in 1948.
