Overall I found this book boring, repetitive, and lacking a coherent message. I understand that this book cannot be looked at through a modern lens, but even so I fail to see why it is so highly regarded and often included in academic curriculum. I would definitely recommend reading 1984 instead if one is looking for a better story in a similar vein from the same era.

Definitely one of my favorite books I read when I was younger
It really makes you think of the importance of books especially "classics" which "a lot of people" (quotes cuz it's just a lot of people I've seen) seem to hate on

It's also interesting to think that with how some books are marked now there's a very simple non insightful labels that can slap on them to make people wanna read them and I think of that when they talked about the tv and how they stripped media down to basically nothingness

I say this to draw parallels in conversations I've had/heard with other people

Overall it's a great book though the ending bits felt a little dragged
