    Description

    George Orwell’s 1984 is the definitive dystopian novel, an account of a world where a totalitarian regime takes over and seizes away every meaning of the word freedom.

    Summary of the Book

    In an alternate timeline, it is 1984. The world governments have collapsed, coalescing into a few totalitarian regimes. What was one the United States has come under the vigilance of a perverse, omnipresent authority known only as Big Brother. Big Brother watches everyone, his eye constantly examines the events and shapes the past to his clandestine needs. No one has any sort of freedom. There is no freedom in life, no freedom in death and definitely no freedom in love. Even reproduction becomes a government-authorized act, and love must be approved and even initiated by Big Brother’s council. In this dystopian timeline, Winston Smith is a man who works in the Records Department of the Ministry of Truth. He is tasked with rewriting history so that the records match the constantly changing party line and the machinations of Big Brother. He constantly hopes to break away from Big Brother’s gaze, and when he meets a young woman named Julia who has the same idea as he does, he begins to find a means of challenging Big Brother’s authority.

    About George Orwell

    Eric Arthur Blair, better known as George Orwell, was an English writer born in Burma. He is best remembered for his essays, his diaries, his novels, including Animal Farm and Down and Out in Paris and London.

    Orwell is considered to be a pioneering novelist and thinker, responsible for the rise of the dystopian literature genre. It is, therefore, no small achievement that the word Orwellian has become a synonym for totalitarian regimes and their ideals.

    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...

    Expected a better product

    book was ordinarily packed with thin regular Flipkart plastic and so my book was badly disfigured.
    the seal or tap was already loose when I recieved it.
