book review???


I have finish reading the "1984 - The Big Brother" by George Orwell a fewhours ago and I have to admit, I found it very real!
I recomend it if you wand to read something that corresponds to our time!
Tell me your opinion about the book (if you have read it)!!

I'd really recommend either Snowcrash by Neil Stephenson or Neuromancer by William Gibson - both execllent and very relevant. Neuromance was where the idea of cyberspace was born, and a big influence for The Matrix

cheers

I have read both of them and I have them both in Hellinik (greek my native lang) and in english!!
But if you don't read the 1984 then you MUST read it (you will understand why when you read it)!!!
