I just looked it up: the dystopian novel “1984” by George Orwell is right now the #1 best seller in political fiction on Amazon.
But I personally think the current US political situation might be closer to the dystopia described by Aldous Huxley: “Brave New World.”
I read them both, many years ago. I love reading, but They were so depressing that I had a really hard time finishing them.
Whether you’ve read them or not, here is a pretty neat cartoon comparison of the two novels. Which one do you think is closer to modeling our current abysmal political situation?
