My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first political book I’ve read that I can remember. I’m not terribly sure how to review it either, but here goes.

Most of you will probably have at least heard of this book or of George Orwell at the very least and know that he is known for writing this kind of book. Books that are warnings for the government and those that live in them. This was but one of his predictions of things that could happen if we aren’t careful.

Socialism in itself isn’t bad, just like Democracy in itself isn’t bad, but everything can be corrupted, society, news, officials, etc. And that is just what happens, and this is one man’s story through this corrupt government.

I won’t say I enjoyed it, because that doesn’t sound quite right, to enjoy a corrupt political environment, but it is worth a read, and a modern classic.
