  • Description

    It is 1984. The world has changed beyond recognition. History is rewritten by the victors, and there is nowhere to run. In George Orwell’s dystopian classic, Big Brother is watching you.

    Summary of the Book

    Consider for a moment that all the freedom one takes for granted is stripped away. Consider how it would be to live in a world where the Government exercised totalitarian control over the past, the future and the present. In 1984, the world as we know it has ended. A superstate called Oceania stands over the remnants of the free countries of the world. It is governed by an authoritarian body known only as Big Brother. There is no escaping the eye of Big Brother, no running away from his gaze. In this world, Winston Smith leads a sad life, forming a part of the large group of citizens who are hired for a simple purpose: rewriting old newspaper articles to erase whatever Big Brother deems evil. Smith is an efficient worker, but he hates his masters. When he meets Julia, a like-minded woman, he falls in love with her. However, while Big Brother watches, there can be no freedom to love. In this world, freedom is slavery and ignorance is strength.

    About George Orwell

    Eric Arthur Blair, better known as George Orwell, was an English writer, essayist, journalist and critic best remembered for his prose, which constantly targeted social injustice, opposition to totalitarianism, and commitment to democratic socialism.

    Orwell contributed so greatly to the dystopian literature genre that the genre itself is called Orwellian, and his other novel, Animal Farm, is considered the epitome of satirical writing. The current title was adapted into a 1984 major motion picture, several radio programs and has inspired several songs and works of literature.

    Wonderful read

    An enlightening novel written in 1948 by George Orwell and telling a captivating tale on the perils of authoritarian governments. It also makes us think if we are unknowingly supporting any such Party, group or governments which would result in far reaching disastrous consequences.

    Rupa publication has brought this book in best shape at great price. Pages are nice and print is error free and great to read. Highly recommended.

    Worth every penny

    Awesome book 😃😃😃😃 this book had such a powerful meaning and it took me on an emotional ride, a must read for everybody. Most possibly the best political fiction book I have ever read!
    The novel creates a world so plausible, so complete that to read it is to experience another world

    Anyone embarking on a political thriller should look to 1984 – to see how it's done.

    Seller: Spectral
    Publisher- FingerPrint
    I am not going to write about the story- it can be found anywhere else.

    Got the book at a discounted price.
    The book arrived two days before the expected date. The packaging of the book is really worth mentioning. I never expected the packaging to be so unique! The book was packed into a hand-decorated paper package which looks very beautiful. I am quite impressed by the sellar Spectral for that.

    But I didn't receive the bookmark which was a bit dis...

    Terrific

    writing review before reading the book. this review is only for book lovers. I think that every book has something to offer, it might be small or large, but it also depends upon the reader of the book to enhance the experience with the book by adding or associating their own beliefs and thoughts.
    don't read blindly, after completing few pages of any book think for a while that whether it suits you or it is not of your type. better to develop a habit of reading a para & writing four. it will ...

    If Isaac Asimov was responsible for giving us the three laws of robotics then this book gives the 3 rules to a dystopian society. The book is a bit heavy specially in the later parts but gives you an insight about how governments and organisations would like to you to believe. There might be a disconnect with some of the descriptions of the scenes with the present times but still packs enough punch to make you wonder if what you know is true or not...
