Staff Reading Pick
Book: 1984 by George Orwell
Recommended by: Joseph
Wow, what a story. Fear. Instinct. (mis)Information. I'm not sure what to say except that, not unlike the experiences of protagonist Winston Smith, the weight of the world Orwell creates surrounds and overpowers and, with only slight glimpses of hope along the way, crushes into dust.
Also, if you're interested in learning about the author of 1984, check out Why Orwell Matters, in which the late Christopher Hitchens serves as your personal guide to Orwell's life and career in ten chapters of lively analysis.
