I have to say that I think it is absolutely wonderful that this whole entire book is published online. I read this book 16 years ago when I was 15 years old and decided to read it again this past week. I forgot just how awesome the book is...unless I just wasn't old enough to comprehend it's powerful message at the age of 15. I am still amazed by how depressing it is and how unhappy the ending is, but I suppose that is the message Orwell may have wanted indelled in our minds. Perhaps with those thoughts lingering in our minds, we shall strive to protect our privacy and the many freedoms we have, including freedom of speech, freedom to think our own thoughts, and the freedom to love others and be loved. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a great, thought-provoking book to read! Enjoy!
