This book is definitely a quality buy. Although it was a little pricey the artistic simplicity of the cover and the hardback spine make this classic book worth the price.I have yet to read this book ... Read full review

I have finally read 1984. It just took me a few years to pick it up. My rating is leaning more toward 3.5 more than 3. I enjoyed the book. I really don't know how to express my feelings about it yet. But I did enjoyed it. Read full review

About the author (1987)

George Orwell was born Eric Hugh Blair in 1903 in Motihari in Bengal, India and later studied at Eton for four years. Orwell was an assistant superintendent with the Indian Imperial Police in Burma. He left the position after five years and then moved to Paris, where he wrote his first two books, Burmese Days and Down and Out In Paris. Orwell then moved to Spain to write but decided to join the United Workers Marxist Party Militia. After being decidedly opposed to communism, Orwell served in the British Home Guard and with the Indian Service of the BBC during World War II. He started writing for the Observer and was literary editor for the Tribune. Soon after he published the world-famous book, Animal Farm, which became a huge success for Orwell. It was then towards the end of his life when Orwell wrote Nineteen Eighty-Four. George Orwell died on January 23, 1950 in London.
