Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Among the seminal texts of the 20th century, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a rare work that grows more haunting as its futuristic purgatory becomes more real. Published in 1949, the book offers political satirist George Orwell's nightmare vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor stiff's attempt to find individuality. The brilliance of the novel is Orwell's prescience of modern life--the ubiquity of television, the distortion of the language--and his ability to construct such a thorough version of hell. Required reading for students since it was published, it ranks among the most terrifying novels ever written. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Back Cover

While the totalitarianism that provoked George Orwell into writing 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' seems to be passing into oblivion, his harrowing, cautionary tale of a man trapped in a political nightmare has had the opposite fate, and its relevance and power to disturb our complacency seem to grow decade by decade. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do Not Buy This Book - The File is Corrupted!
By Debi on September 26, 2017
This book is impossible to read. The file is corrupted and all kinds of strange characters obscure words. It is infuriating to try to contact Amazon's customer service. Amazon keeps you going in circles and there is no phone number for getting help.

Reviewed in India on October 1, 2018
This book is written back in 1948, but hats off to author who very precisely tell what going to be happened after decades.

After 60 years since it was published, it remains one of the most hauntingly terrifying portrayals of future of mainkind. Where there is everything belongs to the state and no one id free in short he told us be ready for a TATALITARIAN STATE.

Most Most Recommended Novel to Read. Your Views definatly going to affect after reading this book. You will start seeing world in a new way.

A Movie also released,, based on this Novel with same name i.e. 1984.
