1984 2.0. As relevant today and yesterday as tomorrow.
on 21 May 2016
I read this about 8 years ago and was blown away by it. 1984 2.0 and bored everyone stiff, even buying a copy for our high church parish priest who dismissed it as atheist tosh (he would wouldnt he!)
I've just seen a Facebook post by an old old friend. An old hippy if ever there was one who has since married and divorced and had break downs on every continent and tonight announced she was unfriending people she didn't like enough.
The irony. I thought she'd unfriended me years ago.
This book is a book of our time. Now as then.
The only thing that seems to our people off is the authors name sominrately reveal it until the end of my pitch.
I've enjoyed just about every Ben Wlton book which continue to be poignant, entertaining and unput downable commentaries of our troubled times.
This book is no exception.
