B.N.W v 1984 - and the clear winner - 1984!!!!
on 4 May 2015
Loved 1984, but couldn't stomach B.N.W. Why? I can't really put my finger on it. Some of the concepts are good and to an extent realistic, but because we are looking into the future, the old fashioned language (yes I get it, that can't be helped, Huxley died about fifteen years before my own birth) almost ruins it. Whereas 1984 can be read today as if it were written yesterday. I must confess, I got bored and put it into the archive of my Kindle, where the free and 0.99p rubbish remains and will probably stay until I upgrade my device or it malfunctions. That is the pure danger of Kindle; I love the device and feel it is good for the environment, plus you can read your desired book once you have procrastinated for hours like I did with B.N.W, but the books can be overpriced, like B.N.W. So if like me you are procrastinating over buying the book, but feel my review may not do justice, go to a public library, or get a sample before buying.
