Dearest Period 5 here is your blog post for pages 147-167...
So far, what has 1984 said about us as human beings? What part of us does Winston represent? Julia? How about The Party?
1984 was written from a futuristic point of view in 1949. What was Orwell correct in predicting? Where was he completely off the mark? What do you think his overall message is to us readers?
Tie 1984 back to Lord of the Flies. How is The Party like Jack? Do you think Winston is like Ralph? How? How are Golding's message from LOF and Orwell's message in 1984 alike? What do both these books say about the survival instincts of humans?
For those of you who don't know the story, what do you think will happen to Winston and Julia? Do you think O'Brien and Julia are good guys or bad guys? What do you think will be the result of Winston and Julia's secret relationship?
I'm interested to hear what you guys think. As always, please remember to reference back to others' comments.
