    Look elsewhere for a good read — unless you're desperate.
    I like how it strongly presents its themes of power, violence, repression, and rebellion.

    Give it a try, if you have the time.
    What makes one of Orwell's greatest books are it's strong themes of power, warfare, violence, technology and modernization, manipulation, repression, loyalty, rebellion, and memory and the past.

    Such a great read that told of a futuristic time if there was totalitarianism. The symbolism gave a deeper meaning that was darker and parallel to what was going on during the second World War.
