“Good but Goldsteins book part was so boring”
“Honestly i cannot even begin to figure out how to rate this book, it just feels wrong but one thing is sure, that i will never forget it and i think that’s the whole point of it. The first two parts were somewhat not as interesting and slow paced but they have kept me intrigued enough to keep reading just to see how everything will play out, and jesus christ what the hell was part 3! I was freaked out, i binged it all til the end. In the first two parts we see Winston slowly having a breakthrough and him knowingly acknowledging his fate and the heavy consequences that will have. Even though we knew something bad was going to happen and that his end will not be good i still did not comprehend what i was about to read in the last part. The third and last part of the book made me feel so many conflicting emotions. From feeling uncomfortable, uneasy and plain disgust to getting a glimpse of hope through Winston’s last fight to keep his own truth. I finished reading and i had to sit for a while, how in god’s name did George Orwell write this. What they say that this book was ahead of its time, the whole issue of being “watched” nowadays with social media and data privacy but simultaneously it being published in 1949 (?!) you immediately see the similarities of the reality of the world during the second world war. i am truly baffled Quote: And the people under the sky were also very much the same - everywhere, all over the world, hundreds of thousands of millions of people exist like this, people ignorant of one another's existence, held part by walls of hatred and lies, and yet almost exactly the same - people who had never learned to think but who were storing up in their hearts and bellies and muscles the power that would one day overturn the world.”
