ONE OF THE BEST POLITICAL FICTION
on 26 July 2018
1984 is set in a dystpoian era, where there is no privacy. No one is spared from the eye! Eye of the big brother. Big Brother is controlling everyone while they are sleeping, eating, walking and even when they are having sex. But no one is sure if Big Brother exists or it is just a made up persona to manipulate people by some powerful people. History is being manipulated everbody knows that but does not want to talk about it. No one can trust anyone, not even their own kids. Big Brother controls everything. In this book there are some rebels like Winston and Julia. They fall in love and everything. They hide this from the Big Brother for a certain time. This looks like almost a cliche story about regime, governments and rising rebels, but my synposis does not do justice ti the book and I do not want to spoil this beautiful book for you! So please, read the book till the last page, which has one hell of a twist.
This book is awesome! Because it was ahead of its time but so close to reality. This book is a crawling out of the system kinda genre, how humans are manipulated by some specific groups of people and we do not even know what we are doing. Winston was a flaw in the system. How they tortured him and all was so horrific. Some words like, newspeak and thoughtcrime are nicely used in the book. I tried to understand most of the stuff like Orwell politics etc but I still missed most of it. It is very detailed and a very descriptive novel. I nearly got bored because I was thinking that this book is one about a chosen one the likes, a cliché, but no! The ending will shook you from inside. Writing style was great too! Little philosophical here and there. And the POV of Winston was amazing. I read last chapter twice to understand the ending. I still think my review cannot properly explain this deep and mindfuck book.
Just explaining this word in my opinion
Newspeak- By making paragraphs and sentences shorter day by day, it will cause less communication with each other. So they(humans) will fail to express their feelings and thoughts. And they do not have any creative thoughts to execute and in the long run, humans will not show any sign of feelings in them.
HOW SHOULD YOU READ THIS BOOK?
Slowly and with full focus because some words and paragraphs are so deep and confusing (it was for me.) So that you have to take some time for digest it
