Last year when I started reading 1984 for the first time I read the introduction and at first I found it interesting but then YAM! in a single paragraph major plot spoilers the entire book was spoilt for me. I wasn't surprised with whatever happened because I already knew it beforehand. So from then on I decided to always read the introductions to novels last and so far I think that's been a good decision. Does anyone else do this? or just find it irritating the whoever writes intros forget that whoever is reading it hasn't read it before?
