There is an amazing book out there that not many people have read. It is called 1984 and it is amazing and at the same time it the author had an unusual way of writing it so it is a bit hard to understand.

Honey, half the world has heard about your 'discovery' it was after all penned by Orwell in 1948 and is now taught variously in English speaking countries around the world, not to mention the assimilation of some of his ideas into everyday parlance and culture.

---------I have read some 12-15-- of Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn books--
all very gripping and moving-----base on much of his true life in the
Soviet prison camps. I have read other stories with deeper meaning---
----closer to my own life---but I site Solzhenitsyn because it changed my conviction about how to survive in our American society --mostly--our
government.. If you are in the Brunswick, Ohio --area-- stop in at Brunswick City hall -- to view my 8 foot by 6 foot oil painting on canvas---
dedicated----"A day in the Life of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn ----

"...a bit hard to understand." ?
