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?

There is a sense of static time which mirrors the very static mood of the book. Nothing seems tro change. The party has complete control of the mood of society. Later on in the book, we see that the party has control over time and reality.
