1984 and Equilibrium

equilibrium_21

So I was reading the book “1984” and was wondering what the hell is happening in the book nonetheless, I continued with the book thinking I would understand if I keep going with it.

Then I met one of my friends and he asked me about the book, and after sharing the concept of the book he exclaimed that the plot is matching with the movie “Equilibrium” and enquired me if I had seen the movie. I had heard of the movie name before but never got an opportunity to see it so I decided to watch the movie as soon as possible.

Yes, the basic outline matches with the book. I have just started the book so I have no idea what is going to happen in the later part of the book but at least the beginning is similar. In the book, to think is an offense whereas in the movie feeling is prohibited and the penalty for both crimes is death. As a matter of fact, I am able to relate to what’s happening in the book more accurately after watching the movie.
