4.0 out of 5 stars Philosophy for beginners-how to read it without boredom, Oct. 29 1997
Sire establishes a literary style that lets average readers consider complex philosophical issues while reading a story about a diverse bunch of students facing the ideological challenges found in most university campuses.
A great read for those who don't like philosophy, but still want to know about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1984-a horrible reality, Oct. 29 1997
This review is from: 1984 (Mass Market Paperback)
Orwell wrote about his own time, 1948. He found the reality of what was going on so disturbing that he refused to acknowledge this time: he swapped the 4 and 8, hence its title.
Orwell explores a depressing humanity, listless with meaninglessness.
The crux is at the end where Winston is talking to O'Brien and says he knows that he will fail...that there's something in the universe, something that he will never overcome. O'Brien asks if Winston believes in God. Winston says no. Thus there is nothing that exists that the party does not control.
This is Orwell's nightmare; a world without God.

5.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining read, Oct. 29 1997
Forsyth's insight into the desperation and calculated skill of a professional assasin is a thrill to read. A fascinating story.
