1984 by George Orwell
1984 Nineteen Eighty-Four (Penguin Modern Classics) by George Orwell (2004-01-29) - George Orwell
This may be more timely then when it was written.  Winston Smith is not following the Party's rhetoric.  He is thinking and realizes he has other memories and thoughts than what the Party wants good Party members to have.  He finally sees a way to rebel but the Party gets to him.
There is so much in this book.  It is a story of a regimen that controls everything including people's thoughts.  It is also a story that can be likened to our day and society.  Power and money are held by a few who control everything.  Winston thinks the proles will one day rise up but those in power know they won't because they don't think for themselves.  They listen to what the Party tells them and believe it and never question it.  Those in the Outer Circle of the Party believe what is told them also.  If they are caught thinking and remembering other pasts, they are arrested and tortured, reeducated, and eventually murdered so that they fall back into the Party line.  I thought Winston would make it.  I hoped Winston would make it.  But the Party got him.  It broke my heart.
This is my first time reading 1984.  I have to admit I wish I could write an essay about it and how our politics and society are becoming what Orwell was warning us about.  He talks about the technology, the oligarchy, the Newspeak used, emotions voided, everyone thinking the same, .  I see it so much of his vision happening today.  We grow further apart from one another.  We use technology instead of communicating face to face.  Families are broken and fewer marry and have children.  Education becomes rote because of teaching to tests.  1% of the population has more money than over half the lower income people.  Corporations have more rights than people.  Wages have frozen and backslid because of rising costs of housing, transportation, and food.  The government does not help the proles.  It keeps them downtrodden and poor.  So much could be expanded upon.
I also enjoyed this book because it made me think.  It used 50 cent words.  I had to use a dictionary.  I haven't had to do that for a while.  It is not a book I will forget any time soon.  If you haven't read it, I urge you to read it.  Wow!

great book and great characters
The Forbidden Brother - Joanne Rock

Jullian was in Cheyenne, Wyoming as she had a new job as a film location scout but she was already at   the risk of losing her job Jullian was a breast cancer survivor and when she was at one on her very low times during radiation  treatment Jullian made a list of one hundred life adventures she wanted to do two years ago. Jullian was at the Thirsty Cow bar and having some wine. Jullian had driven to Cheyenne to meet a wealthy   powerful reclusive rancher Cody McNeill and to try and change his mind about allowing a film crew on his land Jillian had sent a formal written request to Cody’s business manager and got a firm no back. Her boss was pushing her to sign the deal as Jullian had sent her some pictures of Black Creek ranch. Now Jullian was here to try to convince Cody Mcneall. Carson was Cody’s brother -and identical twin but Jullian didn’t know that- and Jullian hoped to see if she could talk Carson to help her win over his brother. If Jullian could get Cody’s permission to film at the ranch she would get more work form her boss. Alos her boss was well connected in the  industry and she might pass along Jullian’s name to her friends as a successful scout. That would mean more work and more travel. More items crossed off her list but more important it meant Jullian was kicking cancer’s butt and that was what she wanted more than anything. Her boyfriend Ethan at the time bailed right after her surgery to remove a tumor. Ethan said he couldn’t deal with chemo and radiation treatments. Jillian swore she saw Varson and left the Thirsty Cow and went into another bar Wrangler’s what Jullian didn’t know it was Cody. There was only five people in the bar. Jillian had no interest or had any mojo in the last two years Some was from his ex and the other was from her disease and the treatment that had lefT her feeling like a dried out husk of a woman She knew from what she had read this could be a normal side effect.What did it matter if men and sex had no appeal to Jillian while she focused on her career and recovery. Then surprisingly Jillian found herself attracted to who she thought was Carson. Cody had bought the building Wranglers was in and now he planned on remodeling it for a more centrally located ranch office. Cody’s family was already fractured but the appearance of his grandfather- Malcolm. Who had disowned Cody’s father Donovan twenty years ago.  Carson wanted to make peace with his grandfather but Cody wanted nothing to do with him. Carson was the type to always go for the fun and not worry about the consequences and Cody decided to pretend he was Carson. He then went up to Jillian and asked her to dance and after a few minutes she agreed .Cody hadn’t been with a woman for twelve months as he hadn’t been tempted by anyone after finding his ex girlfriend cheating. But this woman was different and Cody asks Jillian if she would like to go on an adventure with him.and again Jillian agrees. They have sex and find out the condom had broken but Jillian isn't worried as she doesn’t think she can have kids after the treatments she had. Cody gets her to go for a blood test and she is pregnant.

This was a very good read .I really enjoyed it and this was a fun easy read. I loved how the author approached and delivered the things that happened to Jillian because of her cancer and treatments especially her emotions. I loved Jillian and Cody together. I did feel the ending was rushed especially all a sudden Cody loves Jillian but it didn’t do a lot to hurt the story. I would rate this 4.5 if I could. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend

“Before signing the acceptance offer, you’ll need to know some of the obligations. There will be traveling, often on short notice. I expect you to always be available.

The job is salaried. With successful completion, you’ll be awarded a bonus. Are these things you can live with?”


I nodded. “Yes.”


“Cordelia, prepare the personnel action forms for my signature. Also, give her an elevator key card. She’ll also need appropriate digital access to administrative files.”


He turned his attention toward me.


“After lunch, move your things up and familiarize yourself with the top floor. You won’t have time tomorrow.”


After a few clicks on her computer, Cordelia pulled the forms from the printer and handed them to Mr. Mitchell. He scrawled his signature along the line on the bottom of the page before moving around the desk toward me.


“Read over it before signing. I’ll see you in a couple of hours, Ms. Sheridan.”


“Thank you for this opportunity, Mr. Mitchell.”


“We’ll see if you feel that way after a week of working for me.” He raised an eyebrow, wearing a sexy smirk.


“After a week, you might find it’s me who’s two steps ahead of you.” The words flew out of my mouth before I could stop my snarky thoughts from rolling off my tongue.
