With what? The book itself? I guess you could argue Orwell's prose is very easily accessible but that comes down to his working-class straight-to-the-point attitude.

Do you mean the legacy of the book? I guess what would've gone wrong there is that, because the theme is so universal and highly regarded as important, many people claim to have read the book when they haven't and just wing any discussion regarding it because they've heard of "big brother" before, therefore prompting them to not bother reading it at all.

It's fair enough if you don't like the book after having read it or attempted to read it but I think we can all agree that a book like 1984, as influential as it is, should at least be given a chance.

That, in my opinion, is what went wrong.

The themes are so one-dimensional, bland, and it seems like Orwell isn't self-aware at all.
Tyranny = bad

Gee, thanks Orwell, we had no idea.
There really is no theme; it's just anti-authoritarian propaganda. He never really explains why Big Brother is evil, or what the alternative situation without Ingsoc would be. For all we know, it would be worse.

This book's story is literal dog shit. The concept is nice though

I'm sorry friend but it's like you haven't read the book. All of those issues are addressed.

I liked it. The ending was awesome. Probably the best part. The whole affair "i love you let's fuck in the woods" thing was kinda random.
I like brave New world better, people always compare the two. Huxley is one of my favorite writers though.
