The Owl Keeper. Its significance? I have no clue. Its author? No clue.
All I remember is its title and effect it had on me. A book can change you. The power of words is daunting.

1984 is the best book I have read and reread. Written in the 1940s it tells of a future that has arrived in many ways. George Orwell saw the future. Big Brother is watching you!
