This is a late review but my thoughts of the book remain unchanged. I thought that the plot build-up is slow, taking more than half of the book; two parts specifically. Only the third part kept me ... Read full review

1984 stands as a warning to all about the possibilities of corrupt government. This society was THE example of the phrase; "Absolute power corrupts absolutely". The beginning of the book was slow, but ... Read full review

If I was to sum up my experience in reading 1984 in one sentence, it would be," Well, that was messed up." 1984 is the story of what George Orwell worried the world would be like by 1984 if communism ... Read full review

No one seizes power just to give it up... Most people read this book in high school, but somehow, this one bypassed for me. I liked it for what it was, a product of its time, and a rather heavy-handed ... Read full review

The concept of the plot is clever and thought-provoking; the power the book has to make one think of one's own life, philosophies, environment and species is important. I did like the book, however ... Read full review

(Re-read before picking up 1Q84.) I'm hesitantly dropping this down to 3 stars. I recall loving this book when I read it in high school, but upon second reading, 13 years later, I wonder if I was thinking of Brave New World instead. Read full review
