Product Description

Written in 1948, 1984 used to be George Orwell’s chilling prophecy about the future. And whilst 1984 has come and gone, his dystopian vision of a government for you to do anything to keep an eye on the narrative is timelier than ever…

The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It used to be their final, most essential command.

Winston Smith toes the Party line, rewriting history to satisfy the demands of the Ministry of Truth. With every 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 truth that Big Brother is all the time 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 a couple of generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions—a legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time.
A few of the seminal texts of the 20th century, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a rare work that grows more haunting as its futuristic purgatory becomes more real. Published in 1949, the book offers political satirist George Orwell’s nightmare vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor stiff’s attempt to find individuality. The brilliance of the novel is Orwell’s prescience of modern life–the ubiquity of television, the distortion of the language–and his ability to construct any such thorough version of hell. Required reading for students since it used to be published, it ranks A few of the most terrifying novels ever written.
