Bonjour mes ami(e)s!

I decided to read from chapter 2 on in "1984" all in one shot. It did take me about 4 and a half hours but it was worth it. Very exciting!

I have just a few things to confess. I did not read the Brotherhood book. Sorry but it was just too boring and I knew it wouldn't effect the storyline all that much. My reasoning for this is that Julia falls asleep while Winston is reading it to her. Hey, if she's allowed to fall asleep and not listen then I can skip it without reading it. I also did not read the whole explanation about Newsspeak. I didn't think it was important to me because I already understood. "Spoiler alert!!!" I did like the ending. It was good and it seemed to give me a sense of closure, but still there could have been more.

Anyway, does anyone know what might have been Julia's "Room 101" if Winston's was rats? I was thinking about it and I couldn't think of anything. I read this on a website and I thought it was hilarious: What if Julia was Winston's sister? LOL! How funny would that be.

Anywho, I might come back with more arguments and such.
Leave me some comments. I love 'em.
