I read this book while I was sitting in jail a little while back. I didn't know quite what to expect. Of course I had heard about the book, as well as George Orwell, but I had never read any of his work. It hooked me right away. I tore through the pages faster than I had done in a good while. I wanted to see how Winston made out. When Julia came into the story, I was sure that it would have a happy ending. To keep it short, this was a most depressing and terrifying experience. Just to realize how close to that kind of government is a very scary thing. It also brought forth ideas like: "history is written by the winners." Only more...I can very much see society becoming something like this, maybe it already is. Anyway, its a great read. I recommend it to everyone.

A Timeless Warning
An unflinching and insightful look into humanity that seems to grow in relevance year after year.

So boring. Winston is a sick pervert who dreams of this girl and to do sexual things to her then murder her. Makes no since and it is a long book on absolute bullsh!t of a topic. I fell a sleep.
