One of my favourite all time novels and I had to read it as part of my university course. Fantastic!

THE HANDBOOK of modern politicians. Everyone should read this before going anywhere near the polls.

A long overdue read for me.

But I'm so pleased I finally got around to it, a great book.

I don't know why I hadn't read this sooner. Amazing from beginning to end and a must read for all.

Not read this since the 80s but it is still as true today as when it was originally put on paper.

This was one of the many books on my "To read list." I am trying to read the great modern classics. I eventually picked this one for my English study (High School, Higher) despite not even having read it. (Rather dumb, always pick a book you have read!)
As I read part one I felt let down, and thought maybe the book wasn't for me and eventually abandoned it for a few months.
Just last week I started reading again since the my English test is coming up soon. I found that part one not very interesting but is needed to set up the ideas and themes etc that make the rest of the book amazing.
That is to say the book is astounding. Part Two is good, Part 3 is f***ing brilliant! As O'Brien turns up the dial, you feel the pain, the want to shrink back into the bed.
The love between Winston and Julia, the many under laying themes (my favourite is betrayal), doublethink, Ingsoc and all the metaphysics included in the book will keep you thinking about the principles held in the book for some time to come....
This book is brilliance; it has its flaws namely Goldsteins book which i feel is prolonged needlessly (others may enjoy the geography, tactical and political values in it). Don't be put of by Part One! Buy, buy buy! Read, read, read! I am going to read it again tomorrow.

This book is brilliant, it is by far my favourite Orwell. I reccomment it to anyone who enjoys books with short descriptions and brilliant plots.
