I find hard to read novels. Can someone please help?

I'm currently reading George Orwells 1984, I'm only on the second page and I find so many words I don't know the understand or familiar with. These words are mainly adjectives. I feel like the novels loses its depth and understanding if you don't know what they mean if that makes sense.

I know everyone talks about context clues but that isn't helping and I hate picking the dictionary every time I find a word and don't know it's meaning or context. This just doesn't apply to 1984 but books in general.
