it was amazing
Read 2 times. Last read 1989.

I read this some time ago in my youth as one should. It moved me and challenged me and I feel this is such an important book which becomes more relevant and prophetic each day.

So many of the ideas in this book have become common parlance like Room 101, Big Brother and the Though Police. A stark warning from the past from a genius writer. Just pair this book with Animal Farm and you have two hugely important and influential books everyone should read not because of the messages and satire but because of the simple readability and joy of high literature.

I must re-read this book.
