Description

1984 has come and gone, but George Orwell's prophetic, nightmare vision in 1949 of the world we were becoming is timelier than ever. "1984" is still the great modern classic "negative Utopia" - a startling original and haunting novel that creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing from the first sentence to the last four words. No one can deny this novel's power, its hold on the imagination of whole generations, or the power of its admonitions - a power that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.

Our customer reviews

not exactly light hearted and the pace of the story is quite slow and yet still I couldn't put it down until I had read it all. Its one that really worms its way into your consciousness I bought it cause it's so famous not having a clue what it was about if you're in the same boat it's a great read. - Great Christmas gift for someone who likes politics and/ or is argumentative by nature (probably both the same!!)show more
