2024: A Graphic Novel
Move forward two decades and see the world where giant media moguls and software corporations have become our big brothers. They want the best for us. They know what's best for us. And what is best for us we have chosen ourselves, to be a consumer heaven with no questions asked. A terrifying future where the past doesn't matter and no one cares. Ted Rall updates and spoofs 1984 in a scathing look at where we could be heading. His best and most chillingly funny work to date.
What people are saying - Write a review
I confess I am shocked that so many of the reviews complain that a deliberate retelling of Orwell's 1984 turns out to be ... a retelling of 1984. If you can get over the fact that Rall has done exactly what he says he is doing then you are in for a treat.
What makes Rall's updated 1984 so terrifying is that on the one hand it is faithful to 1984, a dystopian 'What If', whereas what Rall describes is, for the most part, already how we live and what our culture has become.
