The story begins with the clock chiming 13. This manner of time repeats itself throughout Section One. How does this rendition of time contribute to the mood of the novel?

The consistency of the repeating time alludes to unification, maybe something better expressed as sameness. The number thirteen is generally considered bad luck, and it represents the differences between Winston's society and our own.
