Reflection

Heretical book cover

While we are at the topic of heresy. This following book cover pasted on my right seems heretic and it just occured to me that anyone who see it might look at it and get disgusted.

I would organise a giveaway if anyone could tell me what book title this cover belongs to.

But for now, I’m more worried about rendering my blog a wrong and bad impression than organising a quickie giveaways… So give it a go, and tell me if you know the title of this book!

No hint. But there is a quick way to find out. 🙂

  1. That would be the new controversial cover of 1984.

  2. I read this book last year and what a meaningful read it was. It taught me something on totalitarian societies among other things. My lecturer advised us to read it as it can help us understand her classes better. I’m glad I took her advice.

    Going to write a review on it? Looking forward to know what you think. 🙂

  3. I have just finished the book yesterday and will find time to write a decent review. It’s one of Orwell’s most profound work and I don’t want to ruin it with a sloppy review!

    Thanks for dropping by Josette. The book was a good pick from your lecturer.

Ratings Defined

0 = Abandon the book after first chapter

1 = Waste of paper, we will see what the environmentalist say about this!

2 = Skip it, read the book if you have got nothing better to do

2.5 = An average book, easily forgettable.

3 = A good read.

3.5 = A good entertaining read, a page-turner

4 = So glad that I read the book, a book with substance and invaluable for future reference

4.5 = So glad that I read the book, would pester everyone to read it, invaluable, I would want to own it and wouldn't mind a second read (something that I seldom do)

5 = The book is so good that I feel like I am on scale 4 and 4.5, and more, it blew me away and lingers on my head for weeks!

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. - Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
