Yes, JSWolf you are correct 1984 is very dated, but then again so is most of the sci-fo books you come across. Someone said to me that sci-fi books are more characteristic of the age in which they were written then the future in any way. Take a look at 2001, a book that included a computer gone wild called Hal. Now ten years later we still look at that book and chuckle, 84 is very much dated since the concepts it deals with are not relevant any longer.
