5.0 out of 5 stars Huxley and Orwell., 13 May 2011
Comparisons are often made between Huxley's 'Brave New World' and Orwells '1984'. Having read both of them I can definitely say that Orwell was the better writer. However, both of them offer two unique views of the world which both end with the same story: our imprisonment. Huxley's world portrays us as imprisoned by what we love, and Orwell's as imprisoned by what we hate.

'1984' is one I would like to see on the big screen.
