My favorite book is 1984 by George Orwell. This book gives insight into a world that could have been ours. Written in the 40's, Orwell wanted to write what would happen if people became sheep. All through book one it followed a man who struggles with life, having to create lies each day for the news paper, given to people who live care free lives and see freedom in slavery. However he does not love "big brother", a dictator who resembles Hitler rather remarkably. He disobeys through thoughts and a journal which he knows will lead to his down fall. I love this because it reminds people to think each day and that in numbers we are powerful and can do anything we can put our minds to.
