      WAR IS PEACEEEDOM IS SLAVERY.IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.Those words keep sounding in my head since I read this book Gosh, probably the most haunting not to mention frightening book I ve ever read 1984 should also be included in the horror genre.1984 describes a Utopia Not Thomas More s version of Utopia, but this is one is the antithesis, i.e Dystopia Imagine living in a country, whose leaders apply a totalitarian system in regulating their citizen, in the most extreme ways, which make Hitler, Mao, S [...]

      In George Orwell s 1984, Winston Smith is an open source developer who writes his code offline because his ISP has installed packet sniffers that are regulated by the government under the Patriot Act It s really for his own protection, though From, like, terrorists and DVD pirates and stuff Like every good American, he drinks Coca Cola and his processed food has desensitized his palate to all but four flavors sweet, salty so that you will drink coca cola, sweet, and Cooler Ranch tm His benevole [...]

    3. John Wiswell says:
      1984 is not a particularly good novel, but it is a very good essay On the novel front, the characters are bland and you only care about them because of the awful things they live through As a novel all the political exposition is heavyhanded, and the message completely overrides any sense of storytelling As an essay, the points it makes can be earthshaking It seems everyone who has so much as gotten a parking ticket thinks he lives in a 1984 dystopia Every administration that reaches for power, [...]

    4. BillKerwin says:
      This book is far from perfect Its characters lack depth, its rhetoric is sometimes didactic, its plot well, half of it anyway was lifted from Zumyatin s We, and the lengthy Goldstein treatise shoved into the middle is a flaw which alters the structure of the novel like a scar disfigures a face.But in the long run, all that does not matter, because George Orwell got it right.Orwell, a socialist who fought against Franco, watched appalled as the great Soviet experiment was reduced to a totalitaria [...]

      I am a big fan of speculative fiction and in my literary travels I have encountered a myriad of dystopias, anti utopias and places and societies that make one want to scream and with or without contemporaneous loss of bladder and other bodily functions.Simply put, George Orwell s 1984 is unquestionably the most memorable and MOST DISTURBING vision of a world gone mad utterly bat shit psycho that I have ever experienced Ever Despite being published back in 1948, I have yet to find a chilling, ni [...]

      I ve put off writing a review for 1984 because it s simply too daunting to do so I liked 1984 even better after a second reading bumping it up from a 4 star to a 5 star because I think that, given the complexity of the future created by Orwell, multiple readings may be needed to take it all in I thought it was genius the first time and appreciated that genius even the second time Orwell had a daunting task creating a future nearly half a century away from the time period in which he was writing [...]

      What can I possibly say about this amazing novel, 1984 by George Orwell, that hasn t been already said by many who have read the book for over half a century When it is said that the book is haunting , nightmarish , and startling any reader would have to agree This well known novel grips the reader from the beginning and does not even let go of the grip at the finished reading A classic you won t want to miss if you haven t taken the time to read it yet I actually listened to this novel on audio [...]

    13. James Trevino says:
      I reread this recently, knowing my mind from a few years ago is different from my mind now But it was surprisingly just as scary Maybe even so, if that is possible I wonder if there is someone who has read 1984 and has not felt angry and helpless It is a good book It is so good that it made my want to throw away my Kindle And that is a lot, considering the last time that happened was when I read about The Red Wedding in George R.R Martin s series I also wonder if this world Orwell describes is [...]

      Revised for 2017, with added Alternative Facts Ten Shades of Grey The colour of this book is grey, relentless grey of skin, sky, food, floor, walls, mind, life itself Added piquancy comes from general decay, drudgery, exploitation, chronic sickness, and malaise.There is also sex and non sexual bondage, domination, and torture.I don t expect a dystopian book to be happy reading, but this reread was far grimmer than I remembered it, partly because I read it immediately after the lyrical beauty of [...]

      Read as part of The Infinite Variety Reading Challenge, based on the BBC s Big Read Poll of 2003 For, if leisure and security were enjoyed by all alike, the great mass of human beings who are normally stupefied by poverty would become literate and would learn to think for themselves and when once they had done this, they would sooner or later realise that the privileged minority had no function, and they would sweep it away Nineteen Eighty Four is an insanely relevant novel in this day and age, [...]

      My preparedness for the regime change taking place in the United States with elements of the Electoral College, the Kremlin and the FBI helping to install a failed business promoter who the majority of American voters did not support in the election begins with 1984 by George Orwell Like many, this 1949 novel was assigned reading for me in high school What stood out to me then was that I needed to finish it because there would be a test Studying how civics is supposed to work in 3rd period gover [...]

      It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen This changed the way that I looked at ideologies and changed the way I looked at leadership Cynical, scathing, and not without its flaws, this is still a stark, haunting glimpse at what could be War is peace Freedom is slavery Ignorance is strength Chilling The closing lines still come to me sometimes and remind me of depths that I can only imagine He gazed up at the enormous face Forty years it had taken him to learn what [...]

      Goodness gracious this was very unsettling I m already a pretty paranoid person, so the idea of Big Brother was both very intriguing but also extremely frightening.I really enjoyed reading this, but there were moments when I wasn t invested in the story and wanted to take a break from it, mostly in the last half of the book Still DEFINITELY worth the read, though


    21. Emily May says:
      This was the book that started my love affair with the dystopian genre And maybe indirectly influenced my decision to do a politics degree I was only 12 years old when I first read it but I suddenly saw how politics could be taken and manipulated to tell one hell of a scary and convincing story I m a lot well read now but, back then, this was a game changer I started to think about things differently I started to think about 2 2 5 and I wanted to read books that explored the idea of control.

      Este libro me sigue atormentandoAntes de hablar de la historia, primero quiero hablar un poco sobre g neros literarios, si yo se deber a enfocarme en el libro pero denme un momento, nunca he sido fan tico del g nero del terror, por dos razones asustarse para divertirse no me parece muy l gico, y la otra raz n es que siempre hay una vocecita en mi cabeza que, cuando se trata de monstruos, fantasmas, demonios, vampiros, posesiones, etc me dice esto no es real, como te vas a asustar de lo que no ex [...]

      Everything faded into mist The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became truth George Orwell, 1984It s been over 5 years since I last read 1984 and I still find the storyline as horrific as ever It s terrifying to think of a world in which your own children are spies for the government and can turn you in, where cameras are watching you 24 7, where one could be accused of committing a facecrime or having an ownlife , a world in which we live nervously worrying about whether the [...]
