Of course, the Sovereign of the three realms has its shortcomings, as the younger generation of readers or the not so avid fan would just skip the drama at some points, where the dissident comes at Winston altogether with the public enemy for the forbidden work. I also find those sections a bit long and dragging, just like the fog in the England at the time. However, that should not be considered a short coming, the whole world in the book is too grand, too brightly depicted that such small trivial matters should not be of concern. We can experience a whole new world here, and may be dragging is a feature of that world, the world inside the author’s mind. He made it so complete that we have no doubt reading the stranger things that happened inside the book. However, all of it relies on just two words: what if? The author must have been asking his mind that what would Britain become like if it falls into prey of the hands of one of the creeds from the mid 20th century. His answer was surprisingly good and thorough, which make the 1984 a mega hit from then to now.
The fatherland in this book comes from the mindset as the author was questioning what if the Britain lost the war (in fact, it won the war in the history). Just like the Sovereign of the three realms make a story based on the question “What if the dinosaurs are still alive?”. This work makes everyone in awe for George Orwell. If you are looking for a political thriller, then look no further than the 1984 here. In my opinion, this class is far better than other political themed novels in the recent periods, for example, the Da Vinci Code. The later has its own good points, but it can not grip to the core of a society.
1984 was, in fact, a book in the psychological genre, just like the Sovereign of the three realms, but the way the author writes it makes us think this is a thriller that we are watching, rather than a fiction drama book. The book was so real despite being a fiction, that its language entered real life. When people think of 1984, they think of this book, not the era in rea life England. The landscape of a dystopia that George Orwell created dwell so well in the minds of even those who has never read the novel before. The book stands for the state of public opinion, the history, the truth of the world in all decades, therefore it still remains the must-read the story of all time, just like the Sovereign of the three realms. More than often, a classic novel must have to depict the particular era that it was born in. However, for this one, it is more like the history of the world.
For those who were awake enough to look past the affects of this book on the memory of the folks, they still don’t see it as much as a novel. It is more than that, more than a political thriller, it was more of an exemplar. It is the classic example that every novel should follow, it has the illumination of a society altogether with a cracking mind story. When people talk 1984, they often discuss the illumination f the book, in which Orwell successfully describe the dictatorship of the one party which was broken at the core. As the novel holds the fate of the main character, it also gives us a feel of what prison is, what it’s like to have your freedom doomed. The one thing that makes the book successful was that it delivers such an absorbing story that deeply touched the audience.
