Animal Farm by George Orwell
Animal Farm

jbaker01, May 16, 2007

Animal Farm is a cautionary tale both to those in power and to the society as a whole. Orwell more than proves his point that "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely".

Brave New World and Brave New World Revisited (P.S.) by Aldous Huxley
Brave New World and Brave New World Revisited (P.S.)

jbaker01, May 16, 2007

A frighteningly accurate look at the world today considering it was written more than 70 years ago...Aldous Huxley paints a vidid picture of the dangers of mass media propaganda and encourages the reader to think and question their own society.
