1984, Big Brother and some cool literary gifts for George Orwell fans

1984 by George Orwell

I've just started reading George Orwell's classic 1984. This book has been on my wishlist since I found out that the concept of Big Brother came from it. I think this is one of those books everyone should read. Until now  I've only read two chapters, but so far I'm enjoying the book very much.

Description: Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell’s chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, Orwell’s narrative is timelier than ever. 1984 presents a startling and haunting vision of the world, so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions—a legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time.
