Review: 1984

19841984 by George Orwell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A scary book which makes you realize the perils of mass surveillance. The book starts with three very powerful lines, WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH. You will almost be nodding your head in agreement by the time you finished reading the explanation for the three. Spoiler here -> it doesn’t end in a conventional way where the evil is conquered in the end. Rather, you will be fully convinced how and why Mr. Smith would ultimately agree 2 + 2 is 5. A book impregnated with quotes to ponder and my favorite one would be “Until they become conscious they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.”
