1984 by George Orwell
I have always wanted to read this book but just never made the time. Recently I was babysitting my cousin and finished the book I brought with me so I went through my aunt's drawer (yes a small drawer) of books and found this one so I picked it up and got started! Here is the goodreads description:
WAR IS PEACE.
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY.
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.
This book was good... but sometimes too preachy for me. Part 2 went on and on when I was reading the parts that took place from the book that was given out. I will say I was surprised at the twist at the end about who was apart of the Party. I can see why some people love this book. If you are someone would is afraid the US is acting too much like big brother you will love this book. I can see why this book is still popular and has become a classic. Some section and lines really disturbed me! YOU. ARE. THE. DEAD. It is a very memorable book of what the world could become.
I still wonder though now that I am done is Big Brother really a man? Did the Brotherhood really exist? What do you think?
