1984: a novel

Front Cover
New American Library, 1983 - Fiction - 268 pages
20 Reviews
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.

Very good and very prophetic.

Id always heard about this book but disregarded the reviews as overly possitive. As I read it I realized that the book has a direct and accurate view of the way governments work today. It should be a book on anyones reading list. Read full review
