The Classics Book Club here at the library sure had a lot to say about this book! While it’s not a long book, it can be a particularly difficult one to read based on the current political climate and world events.

Big Brother is watching and the Ministry of Truth knows what you’re thinking. Everyone is fed an always-changing version of history and language, and this dystopian future may not be that far off. Winston, the protagonist, begins to believe he can change things and begins a forbidden relationship with Julia that is doomed from the start. A must-read.
