leggendo le recensioni degli altri lettori ho l'impressione di essere l'unico che è rimasto deluso dal finale, un finale che mi ha sinceramente deluso, un finale che è la vittoria del sistema che Winston cercava di smascherare

Il linguaggio è visto come orizzonte del proprio mondo: più il primo si contrae e più il mondo si impoverisce. Il senso del mondo è il senso del nostro linguaggio, senza il quale non potremmo avere un mondo; sicché il controllo del linguaggio non può che essere il controllo del mondo.

La prima parola che mi viene in mente è terrificante.
La seconda è profetico, anche se in realtà Orwell non aveva nessun intento di descrivere un ipotetico futuro, ma stava solo riportando quello che, a suo parere, stava avvenendo nella sua contemporaneità.
Tra l'altro una scrittura netta e pulita.
Veramente da leggere.

It was fascinatingly creepy learning bit by bit the world described by Orwell. A sick, degenerated reality that seems just like the perfect setting for a dystopian novel, but that in truth disturbingly has got some common points with the world we live in.
Mental manipulation, centralized power, constant control, suppressed social classes... do they remind you of something?
It was as if Orwell had already foreseen the future, or simply understood the human nature.
Of course it wasn't an easy read nor a light one, because stopping to reflect is simply inevitable and sometimes even confusing, but it's without any doubt a book that everybody should read. It really makes you become more open-minded and critical towards what surrounds you.
Secondly, it was one of the few books I enjoyed even if they were mostly descriptive (particularly in the first part). But it was really intriguing witnessing that distressing society through the eyes of an oblivious rebel, how he came to the point that he saw himself as crazy because he couldn't even discern between his real memories and what the government claimed was The Truth.
The only part I had some struggles with was the one in the middle: it consists in three chapters of the book circulating among the political opponents and is totally theoretical, exactly like a textbook.

Che vuoi dire che non sia stato già detto?
Splendido e terribile e fin troppo realistico e verosimile e profetico.
Leggevo e pensavo a come stesse accadendo proprio ora.
Le fake-news la post-truth che altro sono se non versioni del doublethink?
E l'imbecilimento della televisione e le bufale on line sui vaccini e l'olio di palma e la biodinamica?
Certo, tutto sembra il futuro prospettato nel fim Idiocracy, ma quella è la versione ottimistica, pre crisi economica.
Saremo tutti "proles" e. non so quanto più fortunati, "inner party"

Uno sguardo "distopico" sul mondo che sarà, o che è stato, o che è. Perché la gente ci avvisa da decenni e noi non stiamo mai a sentire? Vorrà dire che mi metterò comoda per vedere avverarsi nella realtà la storia di Orwell. Magari sarà all'altezza del libro.

"Georgie Orwell con 60 anni di anticipo aveva
previsto il successo dei [I]reality show[/I], a cominciare
ovviamente dal Grande Fratello, format esportato in
quasi ogni paese del mondo, proseguendo fino ai
picchi d'audience della National Security Agency,
programma poi messo in difficoltà dalle rivelazioni
di Edgard Snowden, parte delle maestranze dello
studio televisivo stesso."

This is a tough book, the toughest I’ve read and possibly one of the toughest ever written. It’s a book you should read when you’re actually ready for it, because you’re in for a huge blow.
I was surprised to see that so many details of what Orwell described as the “ultimate dictatorship” were actually true and so many of the strategies and dynamics he portrayed actually happened in many former-communist countries. What he described as Thought Police, Thoughtcrime and mind/reality control may not have happened exactly as he foresaw, but the techniques and protocols actually enforced in many countries were very similar, the fear-ridden and sick society he described resembles so much what you can now read in essays from historians and memoirs from dissidents. What surprised me even more is that he wrote this between 1946/1948 – how could he know so much then about what was already happening in some areas of the world and was about to happen in years to come? Yes, the purges in USSR had already occurred – Orwell himself experienced something similar relating to his affiliation with the POUM Spanish Communist Party during the Spanish Civil War and he may have well read Arthur Koestler – but still, how could he know?
But apart from that, his bleak view on humanity, even leaving aside Communism and its fall, is still striking and relevant. Probably even more so, now that (most) ideology-based-governments have failed and collapsed and indifference, selfishness, greed and lust for power are the distinctive features of our society.
This book is actually an essay in the form of a novel – a gripping and mind-blowing novel at that. What really matters here is not merely a historical analysis of what actually happened or what may have happened in the decades Orwell was writing about, or what may still happen, for that matter. What Orwell really offers here is a prophetic vision focusing on the (im)balance of power and strength, on control exerted on the individuals by elites worldwide, in any historical era, whatever the political (or religious!) stance. The issue here is human nature, instinct, identity, the power of memory and its distortion, exploitation and manipulation. It’s about violence and weakness, about our own will/(in?)ability to stay alive, to preserve our identity and freedom, to remain conscious and not become just hollow shells. If only he could see us now.
