“1984” is a thought-provoking book that will have the reader fully immersed in the story. This is where they will stay, in awe and wonder, until that final page is turned. The ending is no exception to the power that this book holds.
George Orwell reflects the potential of power and control of a governing agency well through his writing. He created a world that is unlike any other, and, contains relevance to life today. The lesson that can be applied is different for every reader.
The world contained in “1984” appears to be simplistic on the outside. However, as the reader gets further into the story they will discover the truth. There is more to the story than what is lying on the surface. This seems especially true as different parts of the governing agency are revealed to the reader. Each may appear to have one purpose, but there a lot of double meanings contained within the writing.
“1984” is a book about power. The power is contained within the story for the reader to discover in this new world. Power is also on display as it becomes apparent that this is a book that will stay with the reader. I personally think this is what makes some of the best books truly amazing, and this is no exception. While the ending contains the potential for mixed emotions, “1984” is without exception a powerful book I think more people should read.
