ITS HERE NWO,
This review is from: Nineteen Eighty-Four (Penguin Modern Classics) (Kindle Edition)
This novel stands out as one of a kind. Understandably it made some impact at the time, presumably due, in part, to the fact that Hitler and Nazi Germany were relatively fresh in peoples minds. Orwell took the Nazi regime, amongst others, and perfected it, even giving reference to this through one of his characters.
The story is dark and the characters flawed and realistic. That is the beauty of 1984. The plot and characters are so realistic that it becomes frightening. Orwell anticipates every conceivable question about the world he created and all are answered within the book. One of the things I love about it is that Winston is not your average hero, in fact at points in the book you actually dislike him.1984 was intended as a social statement, there is much to be said about this, but as this is a review and not a discussion, so suffice to say that it will give you plenty to think about, in particular the repression of free speech, the fear that gives acceptance to totalitarianism and the hopelessness of standing alone.Orwell was one of the founding members of this NWO were struggling against , he knew what was going to happen because he was in the clique that planned it all.
