Nineteen Eighty-Four

Nineteen Eighty-Four - Thomas Pynchon, George Orwell I am so disappointed and so jealous. I'm jealous of those who read this book and loved it so much they gave it 5 stars. I can see why it's a classic and I can see why so many would love this book but I did not.
Parts of it (especially Book 2 - Chapter 9) read like an economic and political textbook and I found myself so disinterested and bored that I was tempted to skip chapters. I Feel as though I could have really enjoyed and gotten into the story if the political and economic details hadn't gotten in the way so much, but I suppose that's what makes this book a classic. I again wish that I loved it, I wanted to because it's a classic and everyone loves it, but I didn't love it or hate. There are powerful messages and imagery in this book and I'm not at all sorry that I read it, but overall I just thought it was "Okay".
