OK… So here’s another cross-post from my Yahoo! Maybe someday I should just register my own domain, and throw off the shackles of bondage? or not.
I’ve got the audiobook for George Orwell’s 1984 on my iPod. I can’t believe I’ve never read it, but here we are. 1984 is really quite a piece of work. Orwell’s disillusionment with the socialist movement is spread over the story pretty thick. It’s hard to believe as a reader (yeah yeah, listener) that he actually went to war and fought in favor of the socialist movement. Of course, by the time he wrote 1984 in 1948 (yes, really) word was leaking out of Stalin’s brutality, and the changes in the British government were also pretty astounding.
Oh, well. This is a blog, not a book report, right? Well, I’m about halfway through 1984, and while I don’t intend on writing a book report to post here, It is nurturing some other interesting thoughts. Maybe I’ll get brave and post another brilliant (hahaha) diatribe here in the next few days.
