Rereading Nineteen Eighty Four

Many years ago I read Nineteen Eighty Four by George Orwell.   I read it in one long gulp.  

I read it with a feeling that it would be the most significant book I would ever encounter.

I read quickly, absorbing much of it, internalising, alert to bits and pieces.

In January 2017 when I heard Trump claim he had ‘three times as many people as Obama’  and when the photographs proved he was a liar, one of his flunkies used the term ‘Alternate Facts’.

I knew then, we had entered the dystopian world of Nineteen Eighty Four.

I went back to reread this book, to see what I had missed. 


What do you think?
