This review is from: Darkness at Noon (Paperback)This is a deeply philosophical and mediative book that considers the role of the state in the affairs of its citizens, the rights of the individual and to what degree human sacrifice is made in the name of an ideal.
This book has certain elements of Animal Farm in it, in the sense that it deals with complex issues in a straightforward and interesting way that laypersons like myself can understand.
The book is a quick read, shows a lot of humanity and grace and made me realise how lucky I am to live in a relatively democratic and uncorrupted country. This is partly a political book, so make sure you're looking for this kind of read if you intend to embark on it. Highly recommended.
