Equilibrium isn't based on 1984. It borrows elements from it along with elements from Fahrenheit 451 and Brave New World.

I got to say the 2 worst books I read were:

There Eyes Were Watching God: Horribly written the style was impossible to follow.

1984: Yep, the old classic everybody claims to love.....with a main character I could care less about and a backstory way too implausible.....at least equillibrium was cool.
I have to read 1984. I almost got to read The Heart of Darkness, but the school thought it would be awesome to put me with an English teacher I don't particularly like

I serious want to read William S. Burroughs' Junky. I got Naked Lunch for Christmas, but I'm waiting to finish The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest before I move on to that.

I think stephen hunter is the man, writes about shooting and actually knows what hes talking about, and Bob Lee Swagger is the man, he also has real people using a fake name, but changes the name so slightly its funny, In I Sniper a sniper shoots "Hanoi Jane Flanders"

And yes game is rediculously fun, just do rediculous stunts, blow up a lot of stuff, more mindless entertainment for just relaxing and taking your mind off things.
