    Just finished reading it for the first time and I absolutely adored it. Something about the way Orwell criticises yet simultaneously holds a candlelight to socialism and its ability to be perverted into totalitarianism is utterly appealing and perhaps an intentional use of “doublethink”

    Orwell does a fantastic job of showing how propaganda can quickly change a society and that those who control the microphone control the present and therefore the past and future. I currently rereading it for book club and it still amazes me how Orwell could seemingly predict the decline we are now living. Newspeak, thoughtcrime, doublespeak, memory hole, doublethink, and facecrime may not be words you are familiar with if you have never read this book. But I bet you have heard, "Big Brother is Watching You." Worth the read.
