Answer: We’re not saying we agree with every last idea presented in the books below (we’re not saying we don’t either), but we applaud the authors for taking on some pretty significant issues. Pardon our carelessly general categorizations this week – time was unkind...
- To Kill a Mockingbird (Harper Lee) – Racial injustice
- Catch-22 (Joseph Heller) – Government/military bureaucracy
- Animal Farm (George Orwell) – Farm animal uprisings... wait no, oppressive regimes
- The Grapes of Wrath (John Stienbeck) – Plight of migrant workers
- All Quiet on the Western Front (Erich Maria Remarque) – Consequences of Combat
- Les Misérables (Victor Hugo) – Social Injustices
- Atlas Shrugged (Ayn Rand) – Excessive government regulations
- Fahrenheit 451 (Ray Bradbury) – Censorship
- The Handmaid's Tale (Margaret Atwood) – Women's rights
- A Fine Balance (Rohinton Mistry) Social injustices
Have a great week and head on over to The Broke and the Bookish to join the fun!
