I loved this book, even though it made me dream people were watching my every move. ;)

This book is creepy, creepy, creepy. It is, of course, brilliant, and timely no matter when you read it. (Hence the being on every high school reading list everywhere.)

I really enjoyed it, despite taking so VERY long to read it. It was hard to get into, but I think that's because I had rotted my brain reading a couple of Laurell K. Hamilton books in a row just prior to starting this one. Oops. ;)

There is so MUCH in this book, it's hard to just blurb about it. I think the choice of narrator was perfect, because you can't know anything more than Winston does, and that is used to perfection throughout the novel. The paranoia, and the doubt of yourself and everyone around you were vital to the story and couldn't have been accomplished from any other point of view.

Definitely one to read over and over.
