George Orwell - 1984


Recommended Posts

Just finished it and thought there should be a thread started on it.

 

I believe that, minus the complete brainwashing and murder, it is scarily precise to the present.

 

What do you guys think?

You're only wrong about 2 things:

 

Brainwashing=CNN, Fox news, etc

Murder=Iraq War, and police brutality and corruption on the homefront...

 

'Saddam is not, and never was our ally' Except that during the Iran/Iraq war in the 80s, he was...so was Bin Laden when the Russians were in Afghanistan...no mention of it now...We are Not at war with Eurasia...We WE NEVER at war with Eurasia stc...

 

I don't think Orwell MEANT to be a prophet...but...

I started reading Orwell due to a British Lit class I was in. It was a more obscure Orwell than 1984 or Animal Farm (called "Comming up for Air")... but it was a really great read! Then I got into more of his stuff. He is a phenominal writer... I reccommend all of his stuff. And I was reluctant to read 1984 because of it's popularity... but it's definitly one of my top five books.

Read Orwell! Any Orwell! :)
