1984 by George Orwell
Author: George Orwell
Publisher: Signet Classics
Original Publication Date: 1949
Perhaps what makes this tale so gripping is the propensity of the imagined world to be translated in an objective observable human reality, more so as an empirical experience (not discounting that it may have been translated already). Orwell did a superb job merging a tragic romance and a corrupted political ideology. Worthy to be read beyond its years.
