1984 presents a startling and haunting vision of the world, so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions... A classic, and easily the greatest, most haunting book I've ever read. Everyone MUST read.

1984 by George Orwell is an amazing and startling dystopian that might have an old title, but is quite enthralling. I read it as a junior in high school and compared to Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World."
My favorite book of all time and my contender for best of the 20th Century. I liked the old cover that was just said "1984" in big block letters.
one of only a few books from high school I truly enjoyed reading. must re-read.
1984, George Orwell. Forced to read it in high school. . .Glad I did.

INTP = "The Thinker" =Traits: Abstract, rational, ingenious, independent ~~~ Book: This type is the most likely to enjoy reading up on philosophy, as they think very abstractly (see: Mr. Ramsay from "To the Lighthouse"). Huxley's blend of scientific insights and social commentary in the classic book, "Brave New World" would probably appeal to them.

One of the most amazing books I've read in a long time and brings a deeper understanding of the awful disease of Alzheimer's
Still Alice, by Lisa Genova (Book Club Kits). A well-researched novel that deals with the impact of early-onset Alzheimer's disease on a 50-year-old professor. Her intelligence and understanding makes her deterioration all the more terrifying as she anticipates everything the disease will take from her.
AMAZING book I read years ago made me think of my mom!! Still Alice by Lisa Genova in July 2011
I read this for the second time as our book club pick. The story resonated with me just as much on the second reading. Dr. Alice Howland, a well respected Harvard professor, begins to lose her edge both at work and at home. She discovers much to her chagrin that she is in the beginning stages of early onset Alzheimer's Disease. Lisa Genova explores this disease from Alice's perspective and allows the reader to feel the heartbreaking deterioration that the Alzheimer's patient might experience.

1984 - George Orwell. " 1984 presents a "negative utopia," that is at once a startling and haunting vision of the world—so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish." (Signet Classics)
1984, George Orwell. Love this cover. Striking, and the eye motif is of course perfect for the novel. The way the image interacts with the lettering is also great.
1984 - George Orwell. Read in early 2008. Of course, growing in Saudi Arabia, we were never exposed to such books, but I made up for the deprivation it in my 20's.
1984 - George Orwell -- been 5 or so years since I read it. Good the first time, way better this time!!
1984 by George Orwell. I read this for one of my classes in high school, and really enjoyed it.
A classic--and for good reason! I first read this book in either my freshman or sophomore year of high school, and loved it right away. It's simply a wonderful work of prose, and both interesting and frighteningly accurate in it's portrayal of the then-future world. Perhaps things were not nearly as scary when 1984 rolled around, but they sure are now--more so every day. Worth reading no matter what age you happen to be, or what you may or may not think about the government and world today.
1984 by George Orwell. Will always be one of my all time favorite books.

1984 by George Orwell... I read this over the summer back in high school. It was extremely unnevering to say the least.
1984- George Orwell (Eric blair) A beautiful, bitter, powerful book about corruption, being conscious and a dystopian society within an ignorant world.
"Nineteen Eighty-Four" is a novel by George Orwell published in 1949. It is a dystopian novel about Oceania, a society tyrannized by The Party and its totalitarian ideology. As literary political fiction and as dystopian science-fiction, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a classic novel in content, plot, and style. Many of its terms and concepts, such as Big Brother, doublethink, thoughtcrime, Newspeak, and memory hole, have entered everyday use since its publication.
1984. My favorite book in high school. I still love a great dystopian story.

I have surprised myself, recently, by liking a web site – not in the Facebook sense of “liking” it that doesn’t mean anything, but in the sense that I’ve spent time with it and haven’t felt like that time could have been better spent trimming my nails, which is how I feel about most of the web sites I spend time with. The site I mean is Goodreads, which I’ve been returning to often in the last week or so, because I’ve just recently finished – temporarily – writing a big project, and I have time for such things as reading books and clicking on the Internet. I have been keeping close track of the books I’ve been reading, as Goodreads permits me to do. When I start one, I tell Goodreads that I’ve done this. When I’m through, I make sure that Goodreads knows about it. This is despite my wariness toward volunteering such information about myself for the potential use of just anybody. I have been asking myself why I do this – why …

Gone with the Wind- my MOST favorite thing!!
Yamina's favorite books books-worth-reading
Gone with the Wind is a novel written by Margaret Mitchell, first published in 1936. The story is set in Clayton County, Georgia, and Atlanta during the American Civil War and Reconstruction era. It depicts the experiences of Scarlett O'Hara, the spoiled daughter of a well-to-do plantation owner, who must use every means at her disposal to come out of the poverty she finds herself in after Sherman's March to the Sea. A historical novel, the story is a Bildungsroman or coming-of-age story, with the title taken from a poem written by Ernest Dowson. Gone with the Wind was popular with American readers from the onset and was the top American fiction bestseller in the year it was published and in 1937. As of 2014, a Harris poll found it to be the second favorite book of American readers, just behind the Bible. More than 30 million copies have been printed worldwide. Written from the perspective of the slaveholder, Gone with the Wind is Southern plantation fiction. Its portrayal of slavery and African Americans is controversial, as well as its use of a racial epithet and ethnic slurs. However, the novel has become a reference point for subsequent writers about the South, both black and white. Scholars at American universities refer to it in their writings, interpret and study it. The novel has been absorbed into American popular culture. Margaret Mitchell was imaginative in the use of color symbolism, especially the colors red and green, which surround Scarlett O'Hara. Mitchell identified the primary theme as survival. She left the ending speculative for the reader, however. She was often asked what became of her lovers, Rhett and Scarlett. She did not know, and said, "For all I know, Rhett may have found someone else who was less difficult." Two sequels authorized by Mitchell's estate were published more than a half century later. A parody was also produced. Mitchell received the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for the book in 1937. It was adapted into a 1939 American film. The book is often read or misread through the film. Gone with the Wind is the only novel by Mitchell published during her lifetime
