1984, a book that is totally different from what I expected. And for that reason, and upon finishing the first 100 pages, I stopped for a while to understand what I read. However, when I continued reading it, I found myself admiring it if only for the style of writing that is so beautiful and made the description much more vivid. I am a fan of such styles.
As for the story, I find that I have mixed feelings. After reading so many books that have this "extremely controlling governments" or "Big Brothers", I find that I am not too thrilled with it.
