Here's the thing about 1984. It's an iconic book. This is true. I understand why it's the favorite of so many because it does display how important privacy is for our future. And history. And truth. And intellectualism. Anyone can write a review on that.

The only reason I gave this 3 stars though is that like all of George Orwells books, I can never understand why he even bothers with characters. They never really are characters. They are mouth pieces that are essentially reciting an essay to me. That's it.
