Good teacher, kind of tough. Did not really enjoy his class, but then again, I hate English. Also, a bit scary when he shakes. His assignments gave no direction whatsoever.

amazing person. amazing teacher. he really changed my life through the different novels and ideologies he exposed me to. he gave me a whole different outlook on life itself. i promise if you have mr.o'brien as a teacher, you will evolve so much as a person. he should be a professor since his intelligence is underappreciated at thornlea.

VERY knowledgable and wise man. You should be a professor instead of wasting your time with children who don't appreciate your teaching.

He had a strange obsession with the post-modern and poems about wheat fields. He taught shakespeare like it was second nature.
