Well....i have finished the book (awhile ago actually) and i am still not sure what i really think about it. this book was written in the '60's then based in the future of 1984 where this huge group "big brother" has taken over to make life better. it's a crazy idea to think that something like this could happen where a group has now taken over every aspect of daily life and make it "better" when actually it's worse. i don't know. i don't think i'll revisit this book ever again. it made me really angry at parts when the knowledge that if something happens that "big brother" doesn't like, they can literally just re-write history. they can even make you question your own past and events that happened to see if it really did happen. sex isn't something to look forward too. your own children are taught to keep an eye out on you to make sure that you're not turning against "big brother". it's a psycho messed up world. one i'm glad is in a book.

I've always wanted to read this. Have you read Brave New World? I always had the impression that they would be sort of similar in tone. I really LOVE Brave New World, though it also has that despairing outlook on the future. Either way, I do want to read this.
