1984-- Finished

Today after work, I am having my work book club meeting.  The book for this month was the incredible 1984 by George Orwell. If you have not read it, I HIGHLY recommend it especially because it is so eerily to the way things are headed now in our current political climate.


I am such a big nerd that I finished reading the appendix this weekend which included an explanation of the vocabulary in the book and then commentary by a historian.  Also now that I was more in tune to hearing references to this book in everyday conversation, I felt smarter when I heard them.  The book is also a good reminder of the need for awareness and motivation that our aactions do make a difference.

Recommend to a friend: YES
