Its antithesis in the Thought Police Winston finds respite in the company of Julia Originality of thought awakens love blossoms and hope is rekindled But what they don't know is that Big Brother is always watchin. YOU ARE THE DEAD Oh my God I got the chills so many times toward the end of this book It completely blew my mind It managed to surpass my high expectations AND be nothing at all like I expected Or in Newspeak Double Plus GoodLet me preface this with an apology If I sound stunningly inarticulate at times in this review I can't help it My mind is completely fried This book is like the dystopian Lord of the Rings with its richly developed culture and economics not to mention a fully developed language called Newspeak or rather of the anti language whose purpose is to limit speech and understanding instead of to enhance and expand it The world building is so fully fleshed out and spine tinglingly terrifying that it's almost as if George travelled to such a place escaped from it and then just wrote it all downI read Fahrenheit 451 over ten years ago in my early teens At the time I remember really wanting to read 1984 although I never managed to get my hands on it I'm almost glad I didn't Though I would not have admitted it at the time it would have gone over my head Or at the very least I wouldn't have been able to appreciate it fullyFrom the start the author manages to articulate so many of the things I have thought about but have never been able to find a way to put into words Even in the first few chapters I found myself having to stop just to uietly consider the words of Mr OrwellFor instance he talks about how the act of writing itself is a type of time travel It is communicating with the future I write these words now but others may not discover them for hours weeks or even years For me it is one time For you the reader it is an entirely different oneJust the thought that reading and writing could one day be outlawed just shivers my timbers I related to Winston so much in that way I would have found a way to read or writeThe politics and psychology of this novel run deep The society in the book has no written laws but many acts are punishable by death The slogan of the Party War is Peace is entirely convoluted Individuality is frowned upon and could lead to being labeled a traitor to the PartyI also remember always wondering why the title was 1984 I was familiar with the concept of Big Brother and wondered why that wasn't the name of the book In the story they don't actually know what year it is because so much of the past has been erased by the Ministry of Truth It could very easily have been 1981 I think that makes the title powerful Something as simple as the year or date is unknown to these people They have to believe it is whatever day that they are told it is They don't have the right to keep track Knowledge is powerful Knowledge is necessary But according to Big Brother Ignorance is strength1984 is written in past tense and has long paragraphs of exposition recounting events and explaining the society These are usually things that distance me from a book and from the characters but Orwell managed to keep me fully enthralled He freuently talks in circles and ideas are often repeated but it is still intriguing none the less I must admit that I zoned out a bit while Winston was reading from The Book but I was very fascinated by the cultureSometimes it seems as though the only way to really experience a characters emotions is through first person This is not the case with this book as it is written in third person; yet I never failed to be encompassed in Winston's feelings George manages to ensure that the reader never feels disconnected from the events that are unfolding around them with the exception of the beginning when Winston is just starting to become awakened I developed a strong attachment to Winston and thrived on living inside his mind I became a member of the Thought Police hearing everything feeling everything and last but not least what the Thought Police are not allowed to do uestioning everythingI wasn't expecting a love story in this book but the relationship between Julia and Winston was truly profound I enjoyed it even than I would have expected and thought the moments between them were beautiful I wasn't sure whether he was going to eventually betray Julia to the Party or not but I certainly teared up often when it came to their relationshipGeorge has an uncanny ability to get to the base of the human psyche at times suggesting that we need to be at war for many different reasons whether it's at war with ourselves or with others That is one thing I have never understood why humans feel the need to destroy and control each otherIt seems that the main and recurring message in this book is about censorship and brainwashing One censorship is limited and little exposure to ideas of the world; the other brainwashing is forced and too much exposure to a certain ideas Both can be extremely dangerousInside the ministry of Truth he demonstrates the dangers of censorship by showing how the Party has completely rewritten the past by forging and abolishing documents and physical evidence We also spend uite a bit of time with Winston in the Ministry of Love where the brainwashing takes place Those who commit thoughtcrime are tortured until they grow to love and obey Big Brother and serve only the interests of the PartyA common theme occurred to me throughout the book although it wasn't necessarily referenced consistently The good of the many is important than the good of the one There are so many variables when it comes to this statement and for the most part it seems natural to say Of course the many is important than the one but when inside Winston's head all that I began to care about was his well being and not if he was able to help disband or conuer the Party and Big Brother I just wanted him to be at peace Whether or not the good of all is important than that of the one I can't answer I think most people feel their own happiness is important than the rest of the world's and maybe that's part of the problem but it's also human nature I only wish we could all accept one other regardless of belief and culture and not try to force ways of life onto other people Maybe I'm naive for thinking that way but so be itI almost don't know what to think about this book I'm not even sure my brain still works or if it ever worked right at all This book has a way of making you think you know exactly what you believe about everything and then turning you completely upside down and making you uestion whether or not you believe anything at all about anything It's the strangest thing Hmmm Doublethink Perhaps Perhaps notEverything about this book is captivating It's groundbreaking yet at the same time purely classic Ahead of its time yet timeless From Big Brother to the Thought Police I was hooked and wanted to know about it allBasically I think everyone should read 1984 at some point You really have to be in the mood to work at reading it though But it's all worth it in the end It's absolutely incredible and I loved it I don't re read many books but this will definitely be one of them It is a hard read but importantly it is a MUST read
