I just finished reading it this afternoon. I gotta say it definatly deserves it's reputation - the ideas presented by the book show how smart Orwell was, and are both incrediably insightful and scarily true to life. My only two gripes with it are that...well its so boring alot of the time, espcialy the 20 or so pages which are lifted from The Book, and also that the ending is a bit of an anticlimax. Who here has read it? What did you think?
