    WAR IS PEACE. FREEDOM IS SLAVERY. IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.

    Note: Review for the edition: ISBN-13 9788129116116 from Rupa Publications (quite a decent edition)

    Set in the year 1984 (although written in 1948), this is George Orwell's best known work till date, and has rightly been called the most influential novel ever written.

    In a totalitarian society where the dwellers of Oceania are under the constant scrutiny of the Party (the infallible Govt), this compelling tale makes you cringe and shudder alternately.
    Freedom of thought is a thing of the pa...

    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.

    Classic read

    This is a must read for any student of politics. At this price, the book was a steal(the quality of the pages were quite good). Flipkart's delivery was in time (bought it using cash-on-delivery).

    This book makes you think

    This book talks about a future, not the sci-fi kind but the society at large in the year which is approximately around 1984, of which even the Winston(protagonist) isn't sure.

    The cruel party taking control over the human instinct through fear and hatred, manipulating the minds of its citizens through a process which enables the rulers to make wrong into right and vice-versa. The citizens of Oceania lives in the state of "doublethink" , a mental state which changes the very nature of objecti...

    Extremely Bad

    There were no proper line-breaks. The paper was pathetic. Spelling error. Bad printing - couldn't even read some of the words. And I'm amazed that if this is Flipkart Assured. Just imagine what the things would be like if thy are not assured by Flipkart.

    A cult book on politics

    we live in a world were we have an illusion of 'choosing'. whichever party comes, we have the same problems and the 'change' they talk about never happens! 1984 is an excellent book that talks about back-hand politics in a dramatic manners that drives home the message to every reader! love the slogan:
    "WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, and IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH"

    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...

    Worthless

    The quality of the paper and the print, both are poor. I would recommend buying this amazing book in another publication, definitely not Rupa
