GTKY: What's your favorite book and why do you think it spoke to you so much?My favorite book of all time is 1984 by George Orwell. I don't know why I love it so much, but I read it in 10th grade and have probably re-read it 5 times. I think Orwell had such an amazing talent for putting you right there with his characters, you see what they see, you feel what they feel and in some cases you smell what they smell. I certainly feel Winston's fear in Room 101. Just a great book.
