book%2Bcover%2B1984%2BcopyI finished 1984.

So let me get this straight.

For seven years O’Brien turned Winston away from The Party.  He whispered to him through the telescreen; he set temptations in front of him; he lured him into Thought Crimes…

just so he could torture him and bring him back to being a proper comrade and member of The Party (a broken member, but a member).

Did I miss anything?

    It sounds crazy indeed but maybe it’s also that actions of true fanatics do not make sense to us “normal” folk? I liked 1984 for some of its ideas and themes (I’m from a post Soviet Union country myself and there was a lot of stuff going on that made NO sense whatsoever!), but I think there are many books better written in the world.
