Entry Six

Right now I'm reading 1984 by George Orwell. I started reading this last October, but then Amy Poehler's book came out and I didn't finish. I've been meaning to actually read 1984 for years, and this time I'm going to get through it all! I'm not very far, chapter four to be exact, but I'm really really enjoying it. I love George Orwell's writing style and what I've read up until this point has been so good. Right now Winston is beginning to question his life as a part of Big Brother's rigid tyrannical routine. However, he must be incredibly careful with his every thought and action as Big Brother is always watching and searching for the slightest trace of rebellion within his people. Winston thinks he might have a connection with O'Brien, a mysterious and powerful high-ranking party member. This hasn't developed much yet but I'm looking forward to see where it goes. My favorite parts so far are Winston's flashbacks and memories from his past. They're especially interesting to me because, being so young, I can't imagine what it must be like to barely remember anything from your youth. I'm just really liking this book and I can't wait to finish it!
