it was amazing
bookshelves: scifi, dystopia
Read in January, 1992

Maaaan 1984! I read this a BUNCH of times in middle school and high school. It was my first "dystopian" novel, and I ate it up like crazy. Even beyond the concepts he raised, though, it's the imagery that stays with me even today. Like the tobacco falling out of the end of his cigarette. And waiting on line in a cafeteria. And tossing that photograph into the pneumatic tube to the incinerator. And overalls.
