For use in schools and libraries only. Portrays life in a future time when a totalitarian government watches over all citizens and directs all activities. 1984 is still the great modern classic of "negative utopia" in its representation of an imaginary world that is completely convincing.

What a book. Animal Farm is a must read book as you understand the concept of REVOLUTION. Orwell teaches you how to write ...he is a gem when it comes to writing. It's a small book with some 100 odd pages, u can spare some time as it does not take much time. Read full review
