6. 1984

Author: George Orwell

Genre: Political, social science, dystopian

Set in a chilling world, where every move is controlled by authority, where free thought is a crime, and where language itself is designed to limit an individual’s vision. I don’t usually enjoy classics, but this was…..chilling.
