Started of great. I got pulled in to Winstons 1984 world. The whole big brother is watching, the elite ruling the masses. But then near the end I started to lose interest and felt the nicely flowing tale was rushed to end.

So I'm on a mission to read several dystopians before I get sick of it like I did with the vampires. This one while as disturbing as Brave New World, and seems to be relevant for the 2017-2021 years at the moment, I didn't enjoy it like I did with Brave New World. That being said it is a bit more ...

Rating: To ComeWow, this book is mind blowing, seriously! "WAR IS PEACEFREEFOM IS SLAVERYIGNORANCE IS STRENGTH."Such power and meaning in these three lines. These are so true not only in our 21st century, but also 30 to 40 years ago. I am only 20 pages into this book, and I must admit that it is k...

I finally got "1984" finished. I had started this last year and spent the summer ignoring this one. Turns out that last summer was the calm before the storm and was probably not the best time to be reading anything. Which explains why I've become so hooked on fan fiction. One of the best quotes from...

Is it bad that I had low expectations for this book? I do really love George Orwell's writing, and to be fair it exceeded them easily. I had the same question going into Brave New World: school's teach these just a year or two after you are reading YA dystopias and everyone conscripts them to make p...

Znowu książka, po którą sięgnąłem po wielu latach przerwy. Doskonale oparła się czasowi, a nawet pokazała dzisiaj znacznie bogatszą treść i zawartość. Piękny wykład – całościowy, kompletny, logiczny – sięgający po wszystkie aspekty tematu. Praktyka sztuki miłości jest tu jak nauka kontemplacji mod...

I read this book as the first book in our recently established bookclub. Obviously there's no denying the genius of the book. Written in 1948, the imagined world of 1984 is in some ways so close to 2015 it's scary. The book seemed divided into parts, even though there wasn't an actual division...

عاشق بودن تنها یک هیجان شدید و ناگهانی نیست که فرد مجبور به پذیرش آن باشد، بلکه نیازمند اخذ تصمیم و قضاوت کردن است. اگر عشق صرفا یک هیجان احساسی بود، دیگر پیمان بستن برای در کنار هم ماندن تا آخر عمر معنای خود را از دست می‌داد، زیرا هر احساسی، هر اندازه هم قوی و اثرگذار باشد، به مرور زمان تقلیل یافته...

Okay so this book nearly made me puke. And not even in a bad way. The story it told was so horrible that it really got to me and I got extremely nauseous, but isn't that exactly what this book was meant to do? All the best books make you feel things, and this is certainly one of them.
