The novel 1984

Should I read it. A high school professor recommend that I read it. I just got around to it. Opinions on the novel?

Re: Should you read it

Why not? It doesn't take very long to read a novel.

I didn't like the book in HS, and I didn't like it when I reread it about 10 years later.

Now Brave New World on the other hand . . .

Yes it's an important piece of literature for historical reference. When you don't understand things they have Cliff's Notes for that. Or for a more modern approach, the interwebs and even a kind of online encyclopedia!

Yes, read it. It's a great book. But I'd say it's important to read it early in life. It forms a reference point for many things you'll see later.

But I have to ask... your high school has professors?

High school "professor"? Is that what he told you?

You should definitively read it.

OP? First learn to read.
