I found 1984 quite frightening frankly. I had to constantly remind myself that the horror of the novel was not real and that WE don't live in this type of disutopian society Orwell portrayed. But in fact this is not true. What makes this book frightening is it's prophetic quality and the thought that this totalitarian government COULD exist. That is what makes the horror of in the novel all that more real and frightening.
