On Monday thebookboozer posted a rant about George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. She didn’t like it. At all. In fact, I think she used the word ‘hated’ in her commentary. This intrigued me, as I think it’s a brilliant novel, perhaps not in terms of the writing, but definitely in terms of content and message. I decided, rather than hijack her comment section with my thoughts, I’d write my own post to respond to the reasons thebookboozer gave for disliking the novel and explain how I think one should approach the novel to truly get the most out of it.
