Why the fuck had I not read this book before The Year Has Come And Gone, But George Orwell S Prophetic, Nightmarish Vision In Of The World We Were Becoming Is Timelier Than Ever Is Still The Great Modern Classic Of Negative Utopia A Startlingly original And Haunting Novel That Creates An Imaginary World That Is Completely Convincing, From The First Sentence To The Last Four Words No One Can Deny The Novel S Hold On The Imaginations Of Whole Generations, Or The Power Of Its Admonitions A Power That Seems To Grow, Not Lessen, With The Passage Of Time 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 overreachin This was an up and down kind of read for me There were parts that I really enjoyed and parts that I found extremely difficult to maneuver through I m glad that I decided to pick it up and give it a go, because it s one that I ve been curious about for a long time I can definitely see why so many people love this book It explores a lot of things that we see happening in the world today I can t say I m leaving it as a massive fan, but I m sure it s one that I ll continue to think about.
I am a big fan of speculative fiction and in my literary travels I have encountered a myriad of dystopias, anti utopias and places and societies that make one want to scream andwith or without contemporaneous loss of bladder and other bodily functions .
Simply put, George Orwell s 1984 is unquestionably the most memorable and MOST DISTURBING vision of a world gone mad utterly bat shit psycho that I have ever experienced Ever Despite being published back in 1948, I have yet to find a chilling, nightmarish locale than Orwell s iconic world of BIG BROTHER and INGSOC The very mention of either of those terms invokes images of Nazis and Soviet gulags in my mind Yet Orwell s creation is in many ways even insidious than these real world bogeymen.
I first read this book when I was 12 years old in 7th grade as ag 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 Good Let 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 down.
I read Fahrenheit 451 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 be War is peace Freedom is slavery Ignorance is strength Chilling The closing lines still come to me sometimes and remind me of depths that I can only imagine He gazed up at the enormous face Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache O cruel, needless misunderstanding O stubborn, self willed exile from the loving breast Two gin scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished He had won the victory
WAR IS PEACE.
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY.
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.
Those words keep sounding in my head since I read this book Gosh, probably the most haunting not to mention frightening book I ve ever read 1984 should also be included in the horror genre.
1984 describes a Utopia Not Thomas More s version of Utopia, but this is one is the antithesis, i.
e Dystopia Imagine living in a country, whose leaders apply a totalitarian system in regulating their citizen, in the most extreme ways, which make Hitler, Mao, Stalin and that old bloke in V for Vendetta look like sissies.
Working, eating, drinking, sleeping, talking, thinking, procreatingin short living, all are controlled by the state Any hint of obedience or dislike can be detected by various state apparatus such as the Thought Police, telescreen, or even your children, who will not hesitate to betray you to the autho In George Orwell s 1984, Winston Smith is an open source developer who writes his code offline because his ISP has installed packet sniffers that are regulated by the government under the Patriot Act It s really for his own protection, though From, like, terrorists and DVD pirates and stuff Like every good American, he drinks Coca Cola and his processed food has desensitized his palate to all but four flavors sweet, salty so that you will drink coca cola, sweet, and Cooler Ranch tm His benevolent overlords have provided him with some war happening somewhere for some reason so that he, and the rest of the population, can be sure that the government is really in his best interests In fact, the news always has some story about Paris Hilton or yet another white girl who has been abducted by some evil bastard who is biologically wired by 200,000
