1984 by George Orwell: A book that you must read!

 I'm not going to explain everything about this book because it has many surprises and it would be better to discover them by yourselves.

  You might not like the book because its cover is not very attractive but don't judge it by the appearance. The inside might be different from the outside.

  The story takes place in 1984 as the title mentions it. Winston Smith is the main character who lives in a world where Big Brother and the Party control everything: the citizens,the past... There are cameras everywhere and there is no freedom at all. You can't think or fall in love or even be sad. No natural feelings. They change and rewrite history so citizens can't remember the truth about their past. The other thing that they do is that they "create" a new language. They shape and limit people's ideas. Winston dreams of a better world. Will his dream come true?

  I haven't read all the book yet and I have a lot of questions, but I've loved it since I've started it. It is the book that you should have in your library. Also, there are a lot of movies based on the book.
