I really love revisiting books as I get older, especially books that have provided me with powerful, lasting images and/or characters and those that helped build a foundation for my beliefs. The last time I read this book, I was still a child and had only the experience of idealism and hope that I still cling to despite my knowing that it's in the nature of mankind to be unbelievably cruel (and that we're pretty dang stupid, too). What a nice visit back to that person I was long ago, and what a wonderful reminder of the hope that George Orwell kept in his heart, even after seeing the atrocities of the world. Still a heartbreaking (and at times uncomfortably funny) read, even if the reader has built a fence of cynicism around herself.
