I just finished 1984, and I must say that it is now my favorate book. It had a great blend of a love story and political fiction. What do yall think about this great book? :)

'Twas good, but the novel "feed" is much better--and more frightening.
Think'st thou heaven is such a glorious thing?
I tell thee, 'tis not half so fair as thou
Or any man that breathes on earth.

It was good. I rcently had to do an analysis paper on the allegory of certain animals to the membersof Russian society who allowed the authoritarian regime to take power. It took some of the fun out of it but I always love to read 1984.

its been a long time since i read the two orwell books, but i always liked animal farm better. animal farm is kinda the prequel to 1984, showing the rise of big brother.
if state farm has perfected teleportation technology why do they still sell car insurance?

It's my favorate book too and I don't even like fiction. I think it's analysis of languages has been the most useful to me. If you read it as an atheist, you can see IngSoc as an analogy of religion (with Big Brother as God, Goldstein as Satan... you can fill in the rest).

I loved 1984. It was hard to get into and it took me a long time to read the first couple of chapters. And then I read the rest in a day. What I found most interesting was the concept of language.

Truly a classic and way ahead of it's time. I particularly like how he conceptualized the television long before they were invented. Really interesting.
