1984: Book Review

1984_orig

Yes, finally I completed the book, “1984” by George Orwell. I have written many posts related to the book and movie and discovered many facts while reading. You can find the related topics by clicking here.

Thanks to today’s turn of events that I finally completed the book, this is the reason why I love traveling by Metro it gives me ample time to read. It also makes me feel effective. Well, I have said a lot about this book , about how it has the tendency to depress the reader but nothing as compared with what I have read in the last two chapters of the book.

This would give you a clue about what I am saying that after completing the book I immediately had to start reading another book just to keep my mind off from 1984. Yes, it was that depressing. Thank God, 1984 was not like what George Orwell had in mind. This book is all about what would happen if the free will of human ceases to exist. This book made me realize that the diversity that we share and sometimes criticize is actually a good thing.

Freedom is freedom to say that two plus two makes four. That’s exactly what the protagonist had said in the beginning of the book when he started writing in his notebook, and in the end, he accepted that two plus two may equal five or anything which the party demands. Again, it was too depressing and I am grateful that we are not living in that kind of world.

PS:
I would try to share a video review of this book on YouTube.
