The husband asked me last year if I had thought 1984 or Brave New World was scarier. He was appalled when I said Brave New World. But I read them in high school, and I didn't grok anything when I was 18, so I'm reading both again to see if I feel differently about them.

I started 1984 last night and had a little chuckle in chapter one: I imagined Lefties reacting to the new Bush campaign ads much like the Two Minutes Hate. Ha.

I read 1984 in ... 1984. At the time I somehow managed to reconcile my loathing for Big Brother's world with my belief in socialism. Talk about not grokking!

As for the Two Minutes Hate, LLLunatics would claim that Bushitler did the same thing with Saddam Hussein, a nice guy who earned the people's votes.

Out of all the books I have ever read, BRAVE NEW WORLD (also read that in 1984, I think) and 1984 have stuck in my memory long after so many others have been forgotten. They represent speculative fiction at its best by telling us something about the human condition rather than providing momentary escape from it.
