I can't escape the after effects,
By A Customer
This review is from: 1984 Nineteen Eighty-Four (Paperback)
of this quietly desolate, yet vocally loud masterpiece. I was drawn to this book having read Animal Farm, and to put such a great book as that in the shade shows just how disturbing and affecting this novel is. If you know the Smashing Pumpkins, you'll understand how "Porcelina of the Vast Oceans" took up 1984's mantle after I had finished the book. I may have turned the last page, but this is a book I will never feel prepared for again. Orwell is a genius.
