WAR IS PEACE.

FREEDOM IS SLAVERY.

IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.



Those words are going to haunt me



Oh... My .... God

I have no words to describe this book and the emotions that it bring out from within in the reader

I best way that I can describe 1984 is that it is the epitome of what a dystopian world should look like and function. This book focuses a lot on showing the reader what kind of world are the characters living in and because of that, the world building in this book is so believable, despite how haunting and horrible situations are to the people living in this world, this book made you believe that it can actually happen and that the system that is in place in this book is effective and can work.
This book isn't filled with event after event and event, on the contrary there are very few events that actually take place in the novel however when stuff happens it REALLY happens and it all works around the system that the book's world has built so it's the complete package, there is not a single missing element that can show a flaw in this oppressed system that the government has placed

It really does make all the other dystopian novels come out sort now that I think about it; heck I would even say that it makes the Hunger Games seem like a Utopia compared to this

This book is so creepy, haunting and a bit scary when you think about how you can be able to see it in our reality. I can think of the MANY moments in history where we could have taken a turn into a world similar to this. Other than History, this book has so much relevance to this time that we are all living in, dispute being written decades ago

The Ending, oh the ending .... the last couple of chapters kept circulating in my thoughts hours after I finished the book

Would defiantly recommend it.

5/5 stars
