    This book is far from perfect Its characters lack depth, its rhetoric is sometimes didactic, its plot well, half of it anyway was lifted from Zumyatin s We, and the lengthy Goldstein treatise shoved into the middle is a flaw which a

    1984 is not a particularly good novel, but it is a very good essay On the novel front, the characters are bland and you only care about them because of the awful things they live through As a novel all the political exposition is heavyhanded, and the message completely overrides any sense of storytelling As an essay, the points it makes can be earthshaking It seems everyone who has so much as gotten a parking ticket thinks he lives in a 1984 dystopia Every administration that reaches for power, injures civil liberties or collaborates too much with media is accused of playing Big Brother These are the successes of 1984 s paranoia, far outliving its original intent as a battery against where Communism was going Orwell was a severely disappointed Marxist , and while people who compare their leaders to Big Brother are usually overreaching themselves and speak far away from Orwell s intent and vision, it is a useful catchcloth for dissent Like so many immortalized books with a social vision, 1984 s actual substance is so thin that its ideologies and fear mongering aspects can be stretched and skewed to suit the readers If you d like a better sense of the real world and Orwell s intents, rather than third hand interpretations of his fiction, then his Homage to Catalonia is highly recommended.

    It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen This changed the way that I looked at ideologies and changed the way I looked at leadership Cynical, scathing, and not without its flaws, this is still a stark, haunting glimpse at what could
