Ellen Keim I agree about the part where he starts reading the book.

Charbel I just finished reading this book and this is exactly how I feel about it. I'm still waiting to be proved otherwise since everyone says that it's an excellent book.

Audrey I completely agree. Though it was more difficult for me to get into this book because I had to read it for class, once part 2 came along I was pleased because the story actually picked up. But then when Orwell actually included 30 or so pages of "Goldstein's book", I was complaining for days. It was semi interesting, yet SO DRY and long winded. When I got to part 3 and finished the book off, I too was disappointed. The whole part seemed disconnected and unrealistic especially with the pacing. AND, the 30 page drought I managed to read through seemed pointless and unecessary to the conclusion.
