Don't know why but I had an urge to read it this book again. I read when I was a teanager many oatcackes ago.
Fascinating, with some striking parallels with society and politics; far tamer of course: constant war and the reasons for it, the dumbing down of society, styfiling debate, common enemy and borders. Goldstein's book on Oliagarphy sounds prophetic.
A great read and some of the concepts such as doublethink and newspeak are happening already.
Worth a revisit I for anyone who was struck by Orwell's vision first time round.
