1984 (1949)

A book that is probably lost to generations since it is most often taught in high school. Beautiful and disturbing in its portrayals of attempts at love and reason in a dystopian society that controls history and emotions. The ending left me a bit unnerved and extremely appreciative of Orwell’s brilliance. A title that should be reread every few years.
