If you click on the title of this posting it will zap you to the website where you can read George Orwell's "1984". I am probably one of a few priviledged people on the planet who actually read "1984" in the year 1984. This is a book that is huge fun to read and to then compare to our present times and possible futures. But what great book to talk about. I hope our students are still reading such material. Similarly is a book called "Fahrenheit 451". I can't recall whether I read this or not and will have to look into it. This title too comes up in discussions of modern politics. Comments I have heard cannot decide what the present age most similarly matches to which book. Anyone have any comments out there?
