Whenever I read something from George Orwell.. it's like I cannot set the book aside, I need to read it all.. Especially this one..

A great book, a real "thinkers" novel. The intense emotions that are so deeply hidden for the majority of the book make it compulsive reading. And when the emotions are let loose, along with the grave consequences and awful treatment afterwards, you find yourself deeply considering what you would have done in the same situation. Although very wild in setting, its not uncomaprable to our lives today. Its extreme nature from begining to end make the novel one of the best to date.

Well, I lived through very much something like it in the USSR; still cannot forget the madness despite so many years that have passed since the collapse of the SYSTEM.

Reading this story always scares me to think about the universe where it is a reality. I hope it never comes true.

I found it a very uncomfortable book to read,perhaps this book is closer to the truth then we like to believe..

Eerie but very much the truth about contemporary England. Not only the public cameras everywhere, or the violations of individual's liberties, but also the mentality of a mad-driven society. Ask foreign students what they think about England and they will tell you that this book is as real and true as it is eerie. English society failed to respect this masterpiece. Orwell like Golding tried to save English society. they were both great authors, no doubt.

Storyline

NOW A NEW BROADWAY PLAY STARRING TOM STURRIDGE AND OLIVIA WILDE

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...

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

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.

Includes a foreword by Thomas Pynchon
