    1984

    I loved this book. It gives one pause to think what could happen if a government had control over every aspect of a person's life.

    Very thought provoking

    This book never failed to give me food for thought. Now I'm left with the problem of seeing modern media without thinking about newspeak and Ingsoc.

    A classic for a reason.

    George Orwell is an amazing author. "1984" is an amazing book. Unfortunately, many parts of this book seem to just drag on, making it an effort to read through. But it is a classic for a reason - it is intellectually stimulating and smart, despite the occasional long and confusing passages.

    Classic

    I first read 1984 a lifetime ago at college. It is still as amazing, frightening and brilliant as it seemed then. Whereas some books lose their edge over time this does not. So much of Orwell's writing has now become fact, he obviously was a gifted visionary as well as a top author. Parts of the book seemed hard work this time round for me.
