<b><b>Golding鈥檚 iconic 1954 novel, now with a new foreword by Lois Lowry, remains one of the greatest books ever written for young adults and an unforgettable classic for readers of any age.</b><br /> 聽<br /> </b>This edition includes a new Suggestions for Further Reading by Jennifer Buehler.<b><br /></b><br />At the dawn of the next world war, a plane crashes on an uncharted island, stranding a group of schoolboys. At first, with no adult supervision, their freedom is something to celebrate. This far from civilization they can do anything they want. Anything. But as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins its reign, the hope of adventure seems as far removed from reality as the hope of being rescued.

<b>A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick</b><br /><br /> With extraordinary relevance and renewed popularity, George Orwell鈥檚 <i>1984</i> takes on new life in this edition.<br /><br /> 鈥淥rwell saw, to his credit, that the act of falsifying reality is only secondarily a way of changing perceptions. It is, above all, a way of asserting power.鈥濃€擳he New Yorker<br /> 聽<br /> In <i>1984</i>, London is a grim city in the totalitarian state of Oceania where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be.<br /><br /> Lionel Trilling said of Orwell鈥檚 masterpiece, 鈥?lt;i>1984</i> is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present.鈥?Though the year 1984 now exists in the past, Orwell鈥檚 novel remains an urgent call for the individual willing to speak truth to power.
