blind

Big Brother loves you. And your mom.

Oh man, 1984 ate my brain. I started it while back, and I think I got derailed in finishing it by other books and stuff. But, yeah, creepy. I was expecting is to be pretty horrible, but what's shocking is just how real it is. I thought it'd be kinda overexaggerated like Animal Farm, but it was really just realistic.

Maybe not, as it would be incredibly difficult to keep the Inner Party or the Thought Police from degrading into corruption from so much power, but hey, the internal checks seem pretty in place.

I can't put into words how amazing this book is. Just how blunt and real it feels. Whoa.

This cover is so amazing in it's design. I doubt I could ever make anything that amazingly simple and beautiful (ignore the shitty compression).
