Classic book about becoming automatons of the state and desperately trying to maintain personal freedom.
Another great in my opinion. This iconic book about totalitarian authority has influenced english language and culture more than i think even Orwell imagined. Its influences even stretch so far as to sparking the idea for popular C4/5 show Big Brother. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=henqOo387-E 1984 http://www.litlovers.com/reading-guides/13-fiction/746-1984-orwell

Younger audiences may find it a little slow in the beggining but stick with it because i promise, it's worth it.
"1984" - Big brother is watching you...feels like it more than ever! This book got under my skin and overdue a reread.
Big brother is watching -- OK, I'm cheating here because in High School I, like everyone else, was supposed to read this - I did not. I read it in --- 1984!
"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.
1984, George Orwel, Big Brother's watching YOU!

Falling Angels by Tracy Chevalier
3/11 OBC - Falling Angels
Try to let some understand what one has an interest in hiding from all. As for me, I have always preferred frankness. But Wilde made up his mind to make of falsehood a work of art. Nothing is more precious, more tempting, more flattering than to see in the work of art a falsehood and, reciprocally, to look upon falsehood as a work of art… This artistic hypocrisy was imposed on him… by the need of self-protection. ” — André Gide, on Oscar Wilde, from The Journals of André Gide
