so i finally finished 1984. it's taken me forever because every opportunity i have to read ive had to devote to school (yes, i am going to school!). anyway, i have to admit, the ending was pretty grim, but at the same time it made me think about government today and where i stand on it. it's a scary world we live in today boys and girls, and when you read this, you can't help but see where we are definitely headed in this direction. i highly recommend it, even though most of you probably had to read it in high school (i'm a product of the FL education system, so they didn't learned us too well.) i was gonna take mindpills suggestion and read Farenheit 451 next, but i think i need to get away from these utopian government books for a bit. One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest is next up.

ken kesey who wrote one flew over..... was the original Merry Prankster who rode around in that crazy bus in the 60`s having acid tests,that tom wolfe wrote about in The Electric Koolaid Acid Tests. also the beatles stole the idea for the Magical Mystery Tour from Kesey and the Merry Pranksters. beatles, bunch of limey fakes........

Don't forget Atlas Shrugged. F 451 is pure paranoia. . . AS gets into the reasons you should be.
