Animal Farm by George Orwell: I am a lover of symbolism, metaphor and politics. What better book is there than Orwell's Animal Farm? There are so many statements made in this book, and yet you can also read it for its literal value and still be impressed.
It doesn't matter if it is completely true or partially manufactured, the prose and process in this text portrays the manic addicted mind and body in such simple complexity. This is the reality of getting clean. Gut-wrenching as much as it is inspiring.
