I listened to the book on a recommendation from a friend. I was frustrated with it. It is understandable the fear and 'horror' it tried to create. It was a pre-electronic age and they really didn't understand that anything that hits the internet, as long as the power does not go out, is very hard to make go away. It reminded me of an abused child. The world is small and abusive and you do what you are told to do. I didn't like Winston. He was.... a coward. Not willing to die for what he believed in and at the same time, willing to go into pain for it? It made no sense to me. When he stated what he was willing to do, without thought, it made me angry with him. He is willing without knowing even what he is fighting for, to throw acid in a child's face? To kill whoever they told him to? No questions asked? That is the reason he is where he is and doing what he does. He is the basic evil. He does not even love the woman. He is just happy that someone pays attention to him and helps him out of his little world for a minute. They try to make this out as a book that give us a future that is "horror" but all it shows to me it that if there are Winstons around, evil will win. Karma got him.

I am reading this book for the first time. I am 24 years old and amazed at the precision of George Orwell's perspective on modern day.
Will check back in as soon as this one is finished.

A mature reader will understand this more than someone who has a difficult time seeing the forces at work in society to control others. People today will seize the one-liners from this novel and try ... Read full review
