Book Club All Star: 1984

When asked 1984 is always my favorite book. But since I haven't read it in awhile, a well-worn copy has once again recaptured my attention. I can't get over how a work of fiction I was forced to read in high school actually has merit still and is rich with entertainment value as well as common conversational reference. Can one say that about The Most Dangerous Game?

Granted the concepts of being a number, social stratification, "playing the game" and working to death for a system I don't understand is even more relevant to the older version of me reading it now. 

Congrats, 1984, you continue to hold the gold medal in my Book Club Olympics.
