I really like the Game of Thrones books. Hopefully he complete them and not only the TV Series.
I only got around to reading the first four, but  from what I've read, they're fantastic

Yeah, they are fantastic and the plot is unpredictable.

I guess you mean the 4th english book? In Germany every book is divided in two.
Yeah, the fourth english one. I didn't know they divided them in Germany. Was there a particular reason, or just to sell more copies?

Officially they say that the german language needs about 30% more words and the books become otherwise too long.

But yes, i think they are not sad to split them up because then they can sell more copies.

George Orwell - Animal Farm

You learn so much in the book about how people behave in group dynamics.
How quickly good people become bad people once they get in power.

Who can ever forget Orwell, "All animals are equal, but some are more equal then others". Sigh

Reminds me of Lord Vetinari from the Discworld:
“Ankh-Morpork had dallied with many forms of government and had ended up with that form of democracy known as One Man, One Vote. The Patrician was the Man; he had the Vote.”

"1984" is of course also very readable.

Orwell wrote the book in 1948, but a lot has now become a reality (surveillance, censorship, etc.).
"Big brother is watching you!"

I had to read 1984 in my freshman year. What did you think of it?

Absolutely. The book was intended as a warning, not an instruction.

I first read the book when I was 12 out of boredom. It opens your eyes.
The book makes you realize how valuable freedom is. You feel free, but you are not free.

I can recommend it to everyone.

Yeah and you especially see how much it applies to your real world. I mean in America, the NSA spies on nearly everyone, probably keeping a detailed database on everyone. There is little privacy from the government. While our society is not nearly as bad as the one shown in 1984, it is  important to think how much power and freedom can be given up to a government. Makes you value the freedom you have a lot more, that's for sure.

I think my favorite book of all time is "We were invincible" by Denis Morisset and Claude Coulombe.
It talks about the Canadian Special Forces from the point of view of one of its members, who is one of the writers.
Apparently, what is said in the book has been called a lie by our government, which makes it even more interesting to read because it really is realistic and I'm pretty sure most of it is true, regardless of our gov's opinion.

Just re-read 'What if its us' bu Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli. Great LGBT+ with a sequel coming out in December. There's 2 main characters with an author writing for each character. Really enjoyed it.

Next on the re-read list: The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
