by George Orwell
(4.4 / 5)
George Orwell portrays a bleak, totalitarian universe dominated by Big Brother and his vast network of officials, including the Thought Police-a universe where information is produced in accordance with the will of the police and individuals reside tibid life by rote.
Winston Smith, a warrior without courageous characteristics, searches for reality and decency alone. But residing in a social system where there is no privacy and where people with unorthodox thoughts are brainwashed or killed, he understands there is no future for him.
The year 1984 has come and gone, yet the nightmare view of the world we became in 1949 by George Orwell is still the great modern classic portrait of a negative utopia.
