“The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”
Winston Smith toes the Party line, rewriting history to satisfy the demands of the Ministry of Truth. With each lie he writes, Winston grows to hate the Party that seeks power for its own sake and persecutes those who dare to commit thought-crimes. But as he starts to think for himself, Winston can’t escape the fact that Big Brother is always watching…
A startling and haunting novel, 1984 creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the novel’s hold on the imaginations of whole generations, or the power of its admonitions – a power that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.
Solely My Opinion
When I started reading the book, I thought that the author was really twisted in his head. I have only read two dystopian novels, the first was Hunger Games series and the second was Divergent series. I did not take seriously those two series as they were just books.
But reading 1984, it was really sickening to the point that the author managed to suffocate me, as a reader. It is a suffocating book, so I try to flip it as fast as possible. There are parts that are so boring that I could fall asleep.
If there is no explanation in the Afterword regarding the story behind this book, why it was written so, I really think that the author must have gone cuckoo to write such a book.
