We're reading 1984! This is the place to post themes and main ideas from the book that you notice. A big one that I'm seeing so far is conformity vs. nonconformity. In this society nonconformity is practically fatal because the Thought Police will catch you and "vaporize" you. And not being afraid to stand up and do your own thing is pretty big too. So far it has parallel themes to the other books, and that makes our project even easier!
