Dear 100 Hour Board,

How many words are in George Orwell's novel 1984?

- W. Smith

A: Dear Smitty,

There are 99,396 words in the novel 1984. Thank goodness for Microsoft Word's word count feature! All I had to do was just sit down with the copy of 1984 I got from the library and type the whole book into Word and have Word count it for me. Otherwise I would have had to count every word in the book myself. Do you know how stupid it would be to try to do that?
