twisted and disturbing,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nineteen Eighty-Four (Paperback)
I'm going to admit something here. When I first read 1984, I was physically sick. That sound ridiculous, but after spending the entire day turning page after page, absorbing all those horrendous ideas, I finshed it, sat back, and then ran to the bathroom where I threw up my guts.
I wouldn't tell you this, but I think it gives you a clear idea on the emotional responce you can have to this book. It revolted me, and yet I couldn't stop reading. By far the most terrifying novel I've ever read, it still chills me to the bone, even the thought of room 101 is enough to make my stomach turn.
This book won't change your life. It'll inspire you to change the world, and that's probably a much better result.
