I've read it too, not a long time ago ! :P Although it's science-fiction, it's quite funny to see how our modern world looks like, or rather begins to look like to Orwell's vision : the importance of media, disinformation, egoism, bachelorhood ( :cry: ) and also mass globalisation. Quite frightening...
I advise you, by George Orwell, Animal Farm (If you have not read it yet :wink: ). It's a deep critic or the USSR regim and Stalin's dictatory...

Good luck with stoics :wink:

P:S Where do you come from Trinity19 ? ( :arrow: I'm just curious :mrgreen: )

That book is very popular here. But I must say I haven't read it.

I think you should give it a try, Dixie. It's a reflective story about a guy that murders two innocent women... I find it quite strange as I don't read many of books concering those issues but this one seems really good.

The latest book I read was Al-quimista by Pauolo Coelho. It was great and I strongly recommend it to every one.I also hope to read Harry Potter and Half-blooded Prince soon! :!:
