Book 2: 1984: Published in the summer of 1949, George Orwell?s nineteen Eighty-Four is one of the most definitive texts of modern literature. Set in Oceania, one of the three inter-continental superstate that divided the world among themselves after a global war, Orwell?s masterful critique of the political structures of the time, works itself out through the story of Winston Smith, a man caught in the webs of a dystopian future, and his clandestine love affair with Julia, a young woman he meets during the course of his work for the government. As much as it is an entertaining read, nineteen Eighty-Four is also a brilliant, and more importantly, a timeless satirical attack on the social and political structures of the world.
Book 3: Little Women: Little Women chronicles the lives, loves and tribulations of four sisters growing up during the American Civil War. As they progress towards womanhood, the four very different characters - the adorable Meg, skilful Jo, delicate Beth and pampered Amy - strive to achieve their personal ambitions in love, in work and in family life. Each learns important lessons.
The novel is said to be a family drama that truly depicts the lives of women in the nineteenth century. It is loosely based on Louisa May Alcott?s own experiences growing up in New England with her parents and three sisters. First published in 1868, it has never lost its extraordinary power to move and delight readers of all ages.
Book 4: Animal Farm: What happens when ill-treated farm animals gang up to throw out their lazy, corrupt and power-drunk rulers? Animal Farm is born. As humans get ousted from Manor Farm and animals take control, their utopian fantasy of running a farm on the basis of equality soon begins to crumble before their eyes. The rebellion of the animals, led by the two pigs, Napoleon and Snowball, gives way to corrupt practices that lead to unthinkable consequences
