Name That Novel #18




Let's try this one.... slightly more contemporary, but still a classic and well-read.

"Winston had disliked her from the very first moment of seeing her. He knew the reason. It was because of the atmosphere of hockey-fields and cold baths and community hikes and general clean-mindedness which she managed to carry about her. He disliked nearly all woman, and especially the young and pretty ones, who were the most bigoted adherents of the party, the swallowers of slogans, the amateur spies and nosers-out of unorthodoxy."

Good luck!
Congrats to Tina! 1984 by George Orwell.

Congrats, Tina. That was quick, wasn't it, Hunter? Never fear, though. I will post another in a couple of days. Give me time to come up with a good one :-)
