After reading a bit of 1984, I've begun to realize that I've never really read anything about dystopian societies. The whole idea of a dystopia is starting to disturb me. I chose 1984 because I was interested by the restrictions put over the citizens. Now that I have continued to read, the idea of being so carefully controlled by your government is weirding me out. I don't think that I'll ever have a government that reads my thoughts or has a telescreen with the ability to hear and see my every move, but just the idea is pretty strange.
I predict that in the course of the book, these ideas will become more severe; more restrictions will be created, and Winston will have even more trouble keeping his affairs private from the government.
