1984

In high school English classes I would have been critical about being tasked with reading a book like George Orwell's 1984. However, the subject did seem interesting and I had seen it referenced in recent more technical writings so I thought I would give it a try.

I actually very much enjoyed it. Although slow off the ground at the beginning from when Winston had met Julia onwards it was more engaging. I found it hard to put the book down, always wanting to know what happens next and always intrigued by the bigger picture, wondering how the story could possibly end.

Towards the end I started to realise that there probably was not enough pages left to reach a happy ending; I was correct. Unfortunate, but maybe necessary because of the authors political agenda.

  • I love love love 1984. I've read it about four or five times. There's so much info in it, and I always read it too damn fast.
