1984 and 2011 – both crazy in their own way.

One whole week has passed and I have not been able to find time to write.  I miss it you.  I hope to be able to jump back in later in the week with news.  In the meantime, a book review…

19841984 by George Orwell

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book is unusual, compelling and disturbing. Often, I found myself having to stop in mid-paragraph. I would have to take a moment to allow the graphic imagery pass from my mind before I could continue.  It is intense.

I know that 1984 is a classic and I am glad I read it, but I cannot imagine recommending this book to someone else. It is too heavy and that is the reason I can only give it three stars.
