it was amazing
Recommended for: every single person

I had read previously, without realizing it, like 4 books that spawned out of this masterpiece, so quite a bit of the book seemed familiar, but even without knowing which influenced which it was apparent this was the one that started it all. The very sense of the book is like someone huddling you over Winston's , the main character, life and watching as this negative utopia warps and contorts reality around him. And i totally agree with what the back cover said I my copy, and I think this is the interesting part:

"A startling and powerful novel that creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing, from the first sentence to the last four words."

To be able to follow the changes in the main character and find yourself believing all along the way right up to the very end. Good read, I would recommend this book to everyone.
