1984, only it's not fiction!
My son was reading 1984 for school and I suggested he read this afterwards. 1984 can seem unbelievable when you live in a free state.Why would any society need thought police?Well this story puts real flesh and blood on the concepts raised in 1984, right down to big brother.It also takes place at an interesting time in Eastern European history, when the fighting STOPPED after WWII.What happened to people who really didn't support Hitler or Stalin after the war?Listen to this and get a taste of what it took for those people to survive in Hungary in the 50's.
I love this "book" and I wish it would come out in print so it could be considered by our Junior High School for required reading.I would buy a hard-cover copy for each of my boy's so they would always have a greater appreciation for the price of freedom.
