Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell’s chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, his dystopian vision of a government that will do anything to control the narrative is timelier than ever...
Winston Smith toes the Party line, rewriting history to satisfy the demands of the Ministry of Truth. With each lie he writes, Winston grows to hate the Party that seeks power for its own sake and persecutes those who dare to commit thoughtcrimes. But as he starts to think for himself, Winston can’t escape the fact that Big Brother is always watching...
A startling and haunting vision of the world, 1984 is so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the influence of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions—a legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time.
I loved this books, thought it was really good. I found it hard to read a few times but it was over all really awesome.
Great book. Shows the negative effects of political extremism. Although it gets weirdly sexual at times.
Perfectly predicts the outcome of modern politics
We did a victory lap when defeating the nazis, and we should have after defeating the communists.
Should be required reading for any social studies class. This book perfectly outlines the dangers of communism and radical socialism.
