List Of Books To Read – 5 Books You Should Not Miss


1. 1984 by G. Orwell

Written deeply inside the 20th century, George Orwell (in reality named Eric Arthur Blair) described a gloomy future where the Big Brother controls every aspect of our lives.

Love is hatred, truth is lie, the past is manipulated and tempted with at will, people live in misery and their basic human feelings are humiliated and twisted to serve the will of the Party.

You really should read 1984 to realize how important it is to live in a free, liberal society and why you need to be interested in what's going on beyond your own life.

2. The Little Prince by A. de Saint-Exupéry

Being one of the most popular fairy tales of all time, The Little Prince painfully reminds us that adults are made so much different from children by the pressure of the outside world.

Exupéry tells a story of The Little Prince living on his small asteroid. His simple purpose of life is to get rid of baobabs (some sort of trees), because they would otherwise destroy his home.

The Little Prince also visits other minor planets, but their inhabitants (such as the King or the Businessman) are living sad and narrow-minded lives.
