If it wasn't because of it, I wouldn't be the person that I'm right now. There were so many emotions to share about struggles, suffering, love, monotony, etc. A book that everybody must read.

Rating: 3.5/5 stars 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 w...Continua

ORWELL is watching you
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 d...Continua

"Sometimes" she said, "they threaten you with something - something you can't stand up to, can't even think about. And then you say 'Don't do it to me, do it to somebody else, do it to so-and-so.' And perhaps you might pretend, afterwards, that it wa...Continua

"How can I help seeing what is in front of my eyes? Two and two are four." "Sometimes, Winston. Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once. You must try harder. It is not easy to become sane."

1984的閱讀過程於我而言是沉重且漫長的。 不但因為學業繁重的關係,更因為其內容實在不得不讓人深思。 情節與現實有著絲絲相似,這一點更讓人細思極恐,深究下去每章每節老大哥的手段與現代政府的異同、被馴化的市民、主角內心的渴望都讓我閱讀時覺得每個字句都沉重異常。 每讀一段新的,每思考及想像那些情劇,背些彷似版加重似的令步伐越發沉重。(續)
