Another worthwhile book is "A Nation of Sheep" by William J. Lederer
Now, in 2017, the fear is here. 1984, the book is in the top ten book sellers this week. Why? Fasicism is upon us. Our rights are being depleted everyday. George Orwell told us, but it took 33 years after 1984 for his predictions to come true. Read on, ye seekers of truth, we need to unite.

I am glad I did. I no longer view it as a frightening vision, as I consider the scenario depicted impossible. I view the work as an indictment of the Soviet Union employing the satirist's tactic of exaggeration to heighten the critique. By envisioning a world even worse than the USSR, increasing its horrors in every area and manner, Orwell managed to rebut the Union's liberal apologists too timid to condemn Stalin, afraid doing so would discredit socialism. His master stroke was in setting the system in England, showing the World what such a system would look like in the "Western" world, not someplace foreign to his target audience. Orwell forced English and American readers to confront the awful possibility, to face the harsh facts of such a system that they might not welcome it but work to prevent it.
Now I find *1984* enjoyable, particularly Julia and O'Brien. Winston is good, but they are great.
