    View our feature on George Orwell’s 1984.

    Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell’s chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, Orwell’s narrative is timelier than ever. 1984 presents 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 multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions—a legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time.

    • Very good and very prophetic.

      I'd always heard about this book but disregarded the reviews as overly possitive. As I read it I realized that the book has a direct and accurate view of the way governments work today. It should be a book on anyone's reading list.

    • 1984.... Today!

      Practically everyone in today's world has heard a phrase that originated with this novel: Big Brother is Watching. It is a real shame that while so many have heard that phrase, so very few have actually read the book.Read the novel, and while reading, keep in mind the events, policies and practices of the State in real life, here right now.When he wrote this book, Orwell imagined a horrendous future in which a totalitarian government constantly monitored the movements and communications of its citizens. He imagined a future in which it would be difficult, if not impossible, to distinguish news from propaganda and governmental truth from governmental lies. He postulated a future in which history was re-written to suit the current needs of the State. He foretold of a time when cameras were omnipresent, and privacy was utterly a thing of the past.I challenge anyone to read this book and not come away shocked at how close we are to living.... in 1984.
