When you read this Chapter for the first time, it will unsettle you, (to be as bland as possible). When you reread Nineteen Eighty Four you want to shout at the characters, because you realise what you are reading.
The question of this chapter is how does Winston trust O’Brien based on nothing?
Winston doesn’t go alone to O’Brien’s magnificent home, he takes Julia. Why?
He doesn’t go as if he is merely borrowing a book as O’Brien mentioned, he goes certain he is being ‘recruited’ into some great rebel army.
Winston, who has lived much of his life in silence and secret reveals everything, and is willing to do anything.
For O’Brien poses questions to see how far they will go.
