This is my first review of a book of the second book I have read in its entirety for pleasure, sure I guess it's sad but hey, you gotta start somewhere. I read this book on my kindle for iOS and it took me 3 weeks to read, but it it was worth it. The film doesn't compare to the book although it's pretty good in itself. It really scared me how close this book was to seems to be coming to reality, and it can be applied to many other factors of life in my opinion, such as religion, homosexuality, and financial institutions even. There is really is very little freedom, and there is this huge fight to have it while the government is now even lying to us to get us to think like them as Rachel Maddow has been announcing in her show lately. Yet this book made me appreciate the fact that we can read and write to digest and express our emotions to each other it really is something we take for granted, it made me realize that I've wasted many times reading unimportant things all these years when there are so many books that open your mind and really deserve our attention. I have always wanted to be a reader but there was something scary to me about all those word letter and pages without pictures, and all the time it takes to commit to a book. I just realized the beauty of books, how clear a good book can be be that no movie can ever match. A movie of a book seems to only be a fast forward version of the real thing skipping many good details. Read this book! take it from a newby.
