J. P. Sykes
 
1984 Nineteen Eighty-Four (Penguin Modern Classics)
1984 Nineteen Eighty-Four (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Clearly the greatest book ever written. Echoing particularly loud in the current global climate, particularly the constant monitoring of people and the use of newspeak to alter history."
Brave New World
Brave New World
"A different twist on the above where sex and soma is used to control the masses, interesting but more fantasy than the gritty reality of 1984. Oh and the introduction of the alpha male!"
Animal Farm: A Fairy Story
Animal Farm: A Fairy Story
"I know it's a bit odd to have two from the same author in the same list, but this really is another masterpiece and probably the own deeply political book I know that would make sense to children"
The Periodic Table (Penguin Modern Classics)
The Periodic Table (Penguin Modern Classics)
"A collection of a variety of stories and true tales, named after different chemical elements by a man who has had a truly terrifying life, a Jewish scientist in fascist Italy - not for me, thank you."
To Kill A Mockingbird
To Kill A Mockingbird
"Truely harrowing insight into 1930s US racism, that to be honest I still see everwhere today, a genuinely sad and touching story."
The Motorcycle Diaries
The Motorcycle Diaries
"Rarely do you get such an honest insight into the formative period of one the 20th century's big political characters. How do good middle class kids become communist revolutionaries - heres how!"
Sophie's World: A Novel About the History of Philosophy
Sophie's World: A Novel About the History of Philosophy
"A lesson in philosophy that gets truly bizarre and makes you really think about the world, better than any introductory guide to the subject - this really makes you question reality."
The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy
The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy
"First of a trilogy of five - and thats probably the most normal bit. A complete satrical look at humanity that will have you laughing out loud on the train, not in the slightest bit embarassed by it!"
