1984 is a dystopian novel written by George Orwell that presents a suspenseful and captivating story. Winston Smith, the protagonist, is an average citizen living in a society run by a doctorial government, so his actions and beliefs are tightly regulated and limited by the government. Winston hates the government and the face of the government known as “Big Brother;’ he finds ways to rebel against the government knowing full well it is illegal. Will Winston’s secret affairs be discovered, or will his rebellious behavior continue? These questions drive the story line and create the heart pumping action of the novel. I enjoyed this novel because of the overarching feeling of thrill as I read it and saw Winston change as a character throughout the novel. There are many things that I love about this novel; but they are all spoilers, and I believe it is a lot more exciting to figure out by yourself. Everything from the introduction to the conclusion kept me well tuned with the plot. This conclusion of the novel left me feeling so many different emotions as it was so unexpected and shocking. I would definitely recommend this novel to anyone who has not read it. I would also recommend the movie as any form of this brilliant story is very entertaining. I give this novel a 5/5 for keeping me thoroughly enchanted with the characters, plot events, and the overall flow of the story. @Josh, grade 12, Yorba Linda Teen Book Bloggers
