Get ready to party like it's 1984
Now, in 2017, the fear is here. 1984, the book is in the top ten book sellers this week. Why? Fasicism is upon us. Our rights are being depleted everyday. George Orwell told us, but it took 33 years after 1984 for his predictions to come true. Read on, ye seekers of truth, we need to unite.

Written in 1948 and describing the world-to-be in 1984, we must never forget that this novel was written during times of war. It is, however, a timeless magnum opus that sufficiently describes our society today, despite its title.
What I dislike about this novel comes from reading Orwell's other writings, such as novels, essays, and newspaper clippings: He is simply too conspiratorical and overzealous, which became especially apparent as he grew older. This book is no different, and I fail to grasp how we — the people of the Earth — are to overcome. There's simply no light at the end of this tunnel named 1984. That's why it must be deemed to be a very bleak novel for most readers. It is not that I assert that light can be found in the real world. But it should, emphatically, be found. 1984 offers no redemption, no solutions, nor does it even suggest that this machine-like vessel of a society can be subdued — so why fight, when we will only get caught anyway.
Overall, it's a must-read and could be a nurturing experience for most and an entirely wholesome read for the intellect.
