  1. Mästerverk
    Carl Skyllner, 24 mars 2021

    Otrolig läsning, i min mening. Ur ett intresse sprunget av en debatt där något beskrevs "som taget direkt ur 1984". Jag ville veta vad det innebar, och fick en riktigt bra läsning på köpet

  2. Tänkvärd klassiker som alltid är relevant
    Buffalo Bengt , 29 juni 2020

    Klassiskt verk som troligtvis inte behöver presenteras gällande story. Boken är tidlös tack vare att författaren verkligen tagit fasta på att lagar och teknik endast kan utgöra stöd för kontroll av människor - medan den verkliga kontrollen av individer handlar om att kontrollera deras tankar och språk. Makalöst bra bok.
