Incidentally, I finally gave up on reading 1984. Part 1 was awesome as it set the stage and defined INGSOC and told you everything you needed to know about doublespeak and Big Brother. Part II was just a character-driven story about characters that I just didn't care about and I just didn't buy into the basic premise of their relationship (she randomly hands him a love note after never speaking to him before and he isn't exactly described as an Adonis). So after dragging it around in the car and not really reading it, I finally just returned it to the library. I didn't have similar problems with Brave New World.

I will say, however, the reading Part I of the book is probably all that one would ever need to understand any 1984 references that one might come across in life so perhaps I read what needed to be read.

I'm reading Star Trek Sarek, a story set after the events of Star Trek 6, exciting read so far...

That sounds interesting. I may get it. :)

Yeah, I got that from the library a few weeks ago. It's a different author than Pride and Prejudice and Zombies but it was still entertaining. I love the whole concept behind taking chic lit and adding superfluous violence and gore. It's win.
