Written 70 years ago, 1984 was George Orwell's chilling prophecy about the future. While 1984 has come and gone, his dystopian vision of a government that will do anything to control the narrative is timelier than ever.
Winston Smith toes the Party line, rewriting history to satisfy the demands of the Ministry of Truth. With each lie he writes, Winston grows to hate the Party that seeks power for its own sake and persecutes those who dare to commit thought-crimes. But as he starts to think for himself, Winston can't escape the fact that Big Brother is always watching.
A startling and haunting vision of the world, no one can deny the influence of this powerful novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions—a legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time.
