1984 George Orwell updated, 2 Jun. 2006
I read this book on holiday and couldn't put it down. It's a pity that it doesn't make it more clear that its a trilogy but the story itself is excellent.
It revolves around the IT culture we live in today and poses many questions about our liberty and freedom in an updated Orwellian 1984 style. Focusing on Govt and Big business abiltity to use and control huge amounts of personal information without the publics knowledge via modern computing technology.
Although this is fiction and includes an element of "fantasy" it is perhaps to close to the truth for comfort with the speed of computer advancement. It's well written and fast paced and an enjoyable read.
