1984 by George Orwell

The fact that Orwell conceived of this novel and wrote it after WWII, but that it’s eerily still relevant and predictive (e.g., Fake News) is amazing. The ideas he expresses are visionary and brilliant, even if horribly depressing. But this “novel” is more like an essay than a story. I found reading it to be a slog.
