1984?

Posted to What Are You Reading?




I always have felt that BNW is a weak, watered down version of 1984. They are both dysutopian novels, but 84 has a much clearer "world" for the reader to enter.

BNW in comparision is messy, underdeveloped and I found the Shakespeare references annoyingly forced. TRYING SO HARD TO BE LITERARY...

There are quite a few other dysutiopian novels The Handmaids Tale and Slaughterhous V are two that come to mind
