Must "read" for anyone who is deeply interested in politics, and a warning of possibilities.
Have read this book before but hearing the narrator's expressions make the story more real.
A book everyone should read.
I hope no society like this ever exist. I think a lot of politicians don't realize the end of their plans. It is always 1984! This does a great job showing some the fallacies of socialism. The biggest one being that it is against human nature. I wish this book would have ended any other way; I was hoping but to no avail. It had to end the way it did to make its point. It is a great book; this story permeates our culture as I have heard countless references to it.
Great performance by Simon Prebble on this classic. Amazing how so much of this cautionary tale applies today. Our ruling elite must have studied this book and incorporated it into their game plan. 1984 was not supposed to be a instruction manual!!
