Dystopian novels do not have to be contemporary in order to be chilling and thought provoking. This book, which penned the now iconic Big Brother, was leaps and bounds ahead of its time despite being set more than 30 years ago now. We read about Winston Smith trying to break free from an oppressive and omnipresent political nightmare. His struggle seems to be mirrored in the tendencies of every proponent of a large and powerful government present, and as such, is a cautionary tale that is still very relevant today.
