    Story
    (2341)

    George Orwell depicts a gray, totalitarian world dominated by Big Brother and its vast network of agents, including the Thought Police - a world in which news is manufactured according to the authorities' will and people live tepid lives by rote. Winston Smith, a hero with no heroic qualities, longs only for truth and decency. But living in a social system in which privacy does not exist and where those with unorthodox ideas are brainwashed or put to death, he knows there is no hope for him.

    Jay Stone says: "Enduring Classic"
    "Simply perfect"
    Overall

    Without a doubt, this audio book is better that good, it's DOUBLE PLUS GOOD.

    Story
    (98)

    This disorienting and bleakly funny work is about a schizophrenic hero named Horselover Fat, the hidden mysteries of Gnostic Christianity, and reality as revealed through a pink laser. Valis is a theological detective story, in which God is both a missing person and the perpetrator of the ultimate crime.

    Devon says: "Bizarro, Sacrilegous"
    "A must listen for avid Lost fans..."
    Overall

    This is a very enjoyable listen containing the trifecta of audio book essentials: Well narrated, conviently timed segments and most importantly great material that grabs your attention. As a Lost fan, you have to read this book because so much of what's happening on the island is inspired by this novel. An eye-opening experience, without a doubt.
