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.

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...

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.

excellent Book! I am not talking about the quwality of book but what written inside it. The book clearly illustrates the current social and political situation around the world even after 73 years of its publication. what would happen if the government becomes totalitarian. The book is worth reading.

The publisher forgot to print an entire page

For the love of books and classics and a compulsion about affordability, I chose to buy this book from this particular publisher. I have been a customer of Flipkart for too long to doubt the products they sell. Hence, I did not care to check every page of it. Unfortunately, I had sat to read the book a month after buying it. And lo! there was a blank page left when I reached the end.
Save this only disappointment, it was otherwise a brilliant read, exhilarating till the end. The way Orwell wo...
