I read this book because I have heard such praises about it. I did not see how it was so great. I got the underlying tones we're trying to make a statement about society, but the story was dry. I am not a fan of torture and that was overplayed.
This is my second Orson Well book, the first being The Animal Farm. He is a masterful writer, this story was performed just as masterfully. The story itself seems to be a scary far distant prophecy of what may happen to our society if we are not diligent about maintaining an unadulterated form of a Constitutional Republic . 2+2=4
I loved everything about this audiobook. The book is terrifying and brilliant, and the narration is some of the best I've heard. I highly recommend!
I love me some audiobooks
I've always heard the term "Orwellian" and thought I understood its true meaning until I finally got this audiobook and listened to it. WOW! What was once fiction is now nearly fact. Our current government, media and corporate oligarchy is truly a fascist conglomerate intent on controlling the population. If you still think you can "vote" your way back to freedom WAKE UP! The power elites want you to think you have some control. Read the current headlines and listen to political and corporate spin and then compare it to this book. COME QUICKLY LORD JESUS!!
Said story, but revealing "prophecy" of the kinds of things that we are facing today. A must listen!
