A Good Read...


I Just got finished reading George Orwell's book 1984. If you haven't read it yet I highly recomend picking up a copy. It was written in 1949 and is really not much of a stretch from the times we live in today. It's basically about a Totalitarian Government which bases istelf on pure manipulation. It focus' on a simple man by the name of Winston. Winston represents the authoritarian regime of the party, he lives every day preforming the same deed not ever knowing the truth nor being able to break free from his clouded world due to "Big Brother" watching his every move. He seeks answers about the past, prestent, future, he seeks the truth. Winston begins a movement to rebell against the all powerful Big Brother and his government built on lies. His rebellion falls short as he is overtaken mentally, he is forced to scrap everything he believes in and conform to the times in which he lives. Frankie say... read the damn book! Do it... do it...
