Both interesting and educational. A great narrative and examination of The State, individuality, freedom, truth, and propaganda. Sadly, it's also been reported to be useful in creating exactly the type of disinformation regime it described.

I hated reading it in school, at first. But then I got into it and it was a really good book, and very scary. I forget when he wrote the book, like 1920 something? And he predicted, or told, a story about a lot of things that happen today... which is scary, like I already stated, but overall, a good book. The ending wasn't all that great though, but it didn't leave me hanging for a sequel, so that's good.

Referenced so frequently in response to anything that sounds even remotely like state-sponsored surveillance that it's become beyond trite. Has also become a go-to reference by people who may have read it once (or not at all) to make them seem smart. See also: Kafka-esque, proactive, paradigm, and synergy.
