    "1984 is a strange book to read since its a prophecy about the future but written over 60 years ago. It is still one of the coolest visions for a alternative reality where a dystopian government is in charge. If you look at social credit system in China today his prediction was almost right on. "

    "Brave New World is a classic and one that is timelessly accurate and horrifying. A world where technology has assumed control serves as a warning to current generations about the power of intentions and power."

    "A classic that everyone should read once in their life. I'm not sure what else to say, based on that! This isn't a feel-good book, just be aware of that in case you don't know. It tells a pretty dark web of the darkness of mankind, and of communism. Orwell was a literary genius, and this book is well-known for good reason."

    "I've seen and enjoyed the film that this book inspired, so I decided to read the book to get a deeper story experience. I'm glad I did, the story is even more compelling, and dare I say, vivid, than the movie was. Any dystopian fiction fan should check this out!"

    "Yes, I saw the movies. This is different, but the movie did capture the feel of it; confusion, bits of knowledge, a puzzle in the dark.... I think I prefer the book, even though I loved the movies. But I confess to being jumpy, checking dark corners after reading!"

    "Poor Jack is brainwashed by the hotel itself, which I thought was great horror writing. It also has great suspense throughout and is one of those books you won't want to take a break from."

    "This was interesting to read since somehow I missed doing so a few decades back and I also missed the movie. This is quite interesting and not too long. I am not a critic. Burgess was a great writer. This is much different than other books of his I have read in the past. I think if you haven't read it before, it is worth the time to do so now."

    "Although the story is good, The Dead Zone is more of a thriller and doesn't have a full focus on the effects of brainwash and doesn't explore the mind enough on the brainwashers. The book is very fun and will keep you thinking but doesn't have the element. "
