Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell's chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, Orwell's narrative is more timely that ever. 1984 presents a "negative utopia, " that is at once a startling and haunting vision of the world -- so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of entire generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions -- a legacy that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.

About the Author

George Orwell (pseudonym for Eric Blair [1903-50]) was born in Bengal and educated at Eton; after service with the Indian Imperial Police in Burma, he returned to Europe to earn his living penning novels and essays. He was essentially a political writer who focused his attention on his own times, a man of intense feelings and intense hates. An opponent of totalitarianism, he served in the Loyalist forces in the Spanish Civil War. Besides his classic Animal Farm, his works include a novel based on his experiences as a colonial policeman, Burmese Days, two firsthand studies of poverty, Down and Out in Paris and London and The Road to Wigan Pier, an account of his experiences in the Spanish Civil War, Homage to Catalonia; and the extraordinary novel of political prophecy whose title became part of our language, 1984.

another great and powerful read from orwell. this contains a warning to society about the influence of the govt in peoples lives, and the danger of having an all seeing govt, with their own intentions before the good of the people. this is based on stalins regime, and tells of a totalitarian society. a must read.

this is one of those classic books that everyone says that you must read. but to reads this, you must have a bit of patience, and a good vocabulary, as this is a bit slow at times, and takes a while to get into things. also a bit depressing, but a thought provoking ending none the less. i would recommend this to all though!
