So I’ve just read Nineteen Eighty-Four…

I find it to be one of the best books I have ever read.

I found it so astonishingly graphic in the sense of the emotion Orwell pours into Smith, I wanted to keep reading after I finished it.

Then again the horror of the government and the logic they destroy and rebuild with absolute deception.

Please tell me your thoughts, go deeper.
what is this about again? i might have to read it just because ive heard so much good stuff about it
I read it for the second time about six months ago, very good book.

**** Official OT Summer Book Club 2007 Request List ****

So heres how we’re gonna do this.

Last time we had everyone who was interested reccomend a book and then the mod drew from a hat to see which one it was that we were going to read. I think this time I want to keep it a bit more democratic so I am going to draw three random ones and then we’ll vote for a day on what we are going to read and then based on the length of the book we will decide on how long / how to break it up for discussion.

Please recommend the book in Title – Author format. thanks.
