1984 is by George Orwell. The must read classic of total government control that brought the character of Big Brother into the national conversation. Written in 1948, the book follows a character who struggles against government control of every aspect of his life. The ultimate struggle of the individual against an all controlling totalitarian regime. You can't help but see a creepy similarity between 1984 and 2013. A Reader's Corner Highly Recommended Read.
