    Imagine a Britain stripped of democracy, a world of the not-too-distant future in which freedom has been surrendered willingly to a totalitarian regime which rose to power by exploiting the people's worst fears and most damning weaknesses.

    Overall

    I thought this book was outstanding and a great compliment to the movie. Of course I love the movie, so perhaps my opinion is not completely objective.
    Now having said that this book (and movie) is more of an Orwellian 1984 spin-off than an allegory of our current political atmosphere. It is a warning of what might be without diligence, not of what is happening now. To review a political philosophy as opposed to the book is unfair and more than a little disingenuous. The lust for power is not a political ideology of right or left it is a human trait.
