Summary of 1984 Summary of 1984 Reviews for 1984 An Excerpt from 1984

A masterpiece of rebellion and imprisonment, where war is peace, freedom is slavery, and Big Brother is watching...

Thought Police. Big Brother. Orwellian. These words have entered our vocabulary because of George Orwells classic dystopian novel, 1984. The story of one mans nightmare odyssey as he pursues a forbidden love affair through a world ruled by warring states and a power structure that controls not only information but also individual thought and memory, 1984 is a prophetic, haunting tale.

More relevant than ever before, 1984 exposes the worst crimes imaginablethe destruction of truth, freedom, and individuality.
