Nope, I have to pick certain quotes from the book and write my own personalized responses to them. I lost the direction sheet though, so I don't know exactly what to do.

I fail to see how the ending is 'beautiful' in any way. Maybe it's just me.

1984 George Orwell

Does anyone slese who read this book find it very Prophetic? I mean the guy wrote it in the 1930's and its exactly what is going on right now. He must have been a psychic or from the future becuase its spooky how life is Happening almost verbatum to what the Book reads.

when orwell wrote 1984, it wasn't a vision of the future, but of the present.... and it wasn't about obviously totalitarian states like the fascist ones of its day,.... it was about the British and American systems of the day, where the Middle have ousted the High with the aid of the Low, and have had the intelligence to not place themselves in the position of the High... most revolutions involve the replacemant of the High with a group from the Middle.... however, America, Britain, and other democracies have cunningly made themselves a system where there is no obvious High, and the task of Government falls to the Middle.... as rebellion comes from the middle, this leaves them nothing to rebel against, thus neutering them.. the Low have rarely rebelled (if ever) without being egged on by the Middle.. which therefore leads to a society where the Low stay Low and just as happy with their lot as before, and the leadership stays the same without fear of rebellion.. this is why everyone was scared of the Russian revolution.. not because it might inspire the Low to rebel, but that it might inspire disaffected member s of teh Middle to replace the governing middle, and upset the whole system.....

He, it's like word for word what is happening.



No, wait.


Also, the ending is amazingly good...but "beautiful"? ****ing hell.
