1984 (Highly Recommended)

1984 by George Orwell

Disappointingly flaccid. Kinky kitchen-sink dystopia, jello salad that never gels.

books

 

The Giver by Lois Lowry

The Circle (a must-read)

books

The Circle by Dave Eggers

Chilling Google/Apple/Microsoft/Facebook doppelganger.  We’re sheep to cyber-slaughter.  Changed my worldview.
