Orwell depicts a gray world dominated by Big Brother and its vast network of agents, including the Thought Police, quashing freedom in a totalitarian world in which news is manufactured according to the authorities' will and people live tepid lives b

《一九八四》喬治·歐威爾 20180305 極權下 無自我、無自由、無愛情無親情、無家庭、無情感表露、無歷史、無真相、無生活、無思想、無忠誠、無愛,所有人性的真善美也消失 餘下的只有空白、出賣、木納、行屍走肉般, 但卻要有對領袖的激情,不是很矛盾麼 只有對極權領袖的絕對服從,丁點思想出脫也不行,連發開口夢都要服從, 這還算是人嗎? 連極權自己也承認高壓統治下,為的不是人民更大的好處,只是維持自己的權勢 令人毛骨悚然! ...Continua

If it wasn't because of it, I wouldn't be the person that I'm right now. There were so many emotions to share about struggles, suffering, love, monotony, etc. A book that everybody must read.

The second time around
The first time I read 1984 fifty years ago, I was 18 at the time. It had a profound impact on me, but I see now how poorly I understood it. George Orwell’s 1984 features a dystopian future society where free thought is illegal and punishable by “vapo...Continua

Rating: 3.5/5 stars It was fascinatingly creepy learning bit by bit the world described by Orwell. A sick, degenerated reality that seems just like the perfect setting for a dystopian novel, but that in truth disturbingly has got some common points w...Continua

"Sometimes" she said, "they threaten you with something - something you can't stand up to, can't even think about. And then you say 'Don't do it to me, do it to somebody else, do it to so-and-so.' And perhaps you might pretend, afterwards, that it wa...Continua

1984的閱讀過程於我而言是沉重且漫長的。 不但因為學業繁重的關係,更因為其內容實在不得不讓人深思。 情節與現實有著絲絲相似,這一點更讓人細思極恐,深究下去每章每節老大哥的手段與現代政府的異同、被馴化的市民、主角內心的渴望都讓我閱讀時覺得每個字句都沉重異常。 每讀一段新的,每思考及想像那些情劇,背些彷似版加重似的令步伐越發沉重。(續)
