** spoiler alert ** If you want to find another reason to lose hope and fall into a deep depression- please! Read this book. I can't understand why so many radicals love this depressing and bleak distopian vision.

Sure, it does outline some interesting concepts of "double speak," government surveillance, mind control and all that, but really I could do without the detailed account of torture that takes up half the novel.
