Having finally gotten around to reading this book considered a classic,i can see why it is considered just that.
A man going against the system as it were,daring to think his own thought,rather than being subjugated by big brother.
Okay,it's a little odd and i can see why some would shrug it all of as silly paranoia in a made up world,but i could see the argument that this was about the kind of control the powers that be are trying to have over people,the thought police really could still happen in my view.
It's a world where control over everyone is the norm and a few dare to question why this is so,this focuses on one man's vision of this world and it is,as so many people have said about this book,something that fits in to today's world,thought crime does feel very real sometimes. I liked what this book was saying,but had to grab my dictionary quite a bit for the very obscure words,but that was a learning experience as a bonus i guess.
What a book...hold on,i think someone's listening to my thoughts,i'm off.
