    Story
    (508)

    Marooned on a tropical island, alone in a world of uncharted possibilities, and devoid of adult supervision or rules, a group of British boys begins to forge a society with its own unique rules and rituals.

    Raisa says: "Great story - bad narration"
    "This book is crazy good!"
    Overall

    I used to work as a wildland firefighter. The way their society degrades mirrors fire camp as the tour reaches twenty-plus days. I think everyone who has worked in a "high testosterone" occupation will see parallels between this book and their work environment. I think it actually applies to a lot more situations ? it was just obvious from my perspective. I could even match the characters in the book to the characters I have worked with. Anyway, I recommend this book to everyone.

    The year 1984 has come and gone, yet George Orwell's prophetic nightmare vision in 1949 of the world we were becoming is timelier than ever. 1984 is still the great modern classic of "Negative Utopia", a startlingly original and powerful novel that creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing, from the first sentence to the last four words.

    Erik says: "Good narrator, great book"
    "Good book but a little slow to get start."
    Overall

    It was a good book, but it had a slow start. I didn't have to read this in high school, but I can see why it used to be required reading. The books subject rings fairly true today. You can look at it from the point of modern, liberal socialists trying to take away personal freedoms, or you can look at it as the religious right trying to implement thier moral ideals. It is basically a book showing abuses of a paternal government. When I finished the book, I wanted to join the libertarian party!

    Jon Stewart, host of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning The Daily Show, and his coterie of patriots deliver a hilarious look at American government.

    Connie says: "Runs hot and cold..but when it's hot...it's hot"
    "This book is fairly funny."
    Overall

    It is kind of funny. I laughed a few times. He drops the F-bomb a bit - to make something more shocking thereby funny. Overall, it left me wishing I would have chosen a different book this month.
