i've wanted to read this book for quite some time. it was very interesting. not sure that i buy into all that it has to say, however.
this was a great read but at times i found myself confused not knowing anything about british politics. it was also kinda fun reading about a time period that was written about the future, which has already past because the book is so old. shocking how much he got right.
+++spoiler alert+++ hard to say i loved this book because it was difficult to love, rather like a badly behaved child who continually embarrasses you in public. the writing was great, of course, as expected from one of the best storytellers of our time. it makes you take a hard look at the cruelty and selfishness that is so typical in society. it's the rule not the exception that we ignore the suffering of others unless it affects us. seeing myself in this book made me cringe. that said,BRAVO
truly amazing what is published these days. i'd read the 1st chapter just for kicks & had to laugh at the poor writing. the only reason i read this piece of trash in the 1st place was i'd heard about a book burning party and decided i couldn't consign a book to the flames without having read the whole thing. it is written as if by a very slutty 14 year old girl. my brain needs mouthwash. on the other hand such mindless reading finished it less than a day.
