[SR: 4119655], Audio Cassette, [EAN: 9780140862539], Audiobook, Penguin Audio UK, Penguin Audio UK, Book, [PU: Penguin Audio UK], Penguin Audio UK, 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., 13927221, Orwell, George, 13927211, ( O ), 13925161, Authors, A-Z, 13901671, Audiobooks, 2205888011, Custom Stores, 1040638, Specialty Stores, 916520, Books, 13928471, General, 13901671, Audiobooks, 2205888011, Custom Stores, 1040638, Specialty Stores, 916520, Books, 13928911, Literary Classics, 13928891, Literature & Fiction, 13901671, Audiobooks, 2205888011, Custom Stores, 1040638, Specialty Stores, 916520, Books, 13930761, Science Fiction, 13930741, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 13901671, Audiobooks, 2205888011, Custom Stores, 1040638, Specialty Stores, 916520, Books, 932108, Classics, 932122, Greek, 932124, Medieval, 932126, Roman, 927790, Literature & Fiction, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 2056047011, Literary, 927790, Literature & Fiction, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 959330, Science Fiction, 959332, Adventure, 959184, Alternate History, 959340, Hard Science Fiction, 959342, History & Criticism, 15401677011, Short Stories & Anthologies, 274726011, Space Opera, 957368, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 15306451, Literature, 15306521, American Literature, 15306461, Creative Writing & Composition, 15306531, English Literature, 15306511, Literary Theory, 690380011, World Literature, 15306041, Humanities, 15115321, Textbooks, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books

Title:

1984

9780140862539

Published in 1949, Ninety Eighty-Four is Orwell's terrifing vision of a totalitarian future. Its hero, Winston Smith, is a worker at the Ministry of Truth, where he falsifies records for the party. Secretly subversive, he and his colleague Julia try to free themselves from political slavery but the price of freedom is betrayal., "Outside, even through the shut window pane, the world looked cold. Down in the street little eddies of wind were whirling dust and torn paper into spirals, and though the sun was shining and the sky a harsh blue, there seemed to be no color in anything except the posters that were plastered everywhere."

The year is 1984; the scene is London, largest population center of Airstrip One.

Airstrip One is part of the vast political entity Oceania, which is eternally at war with one of two other vast entities, Eurasia and Eastasia. At any moment, depending upon current alignments, all existing records show either that Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia and allied with Eastasia, or that it has always been at war with Eastasia and allied with Eurasia. Winston Smith knows this, because his work at the Ministry of Truth involves the constant "correction" of such records. "'Who controls the past,' ran the Party slogan, 'controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.'"

In a grim city and a terrifying country, where Big Brother is always Watching You and the Thought Police can practically read your mind, Winston is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. He knows the Party's official image of the world is a fluid fiction. He knows the Party controls the people by feeding them lies and narrowing their imaginations through a process of bewilderment and brutalization that alienates each individual from his fellows and deprives him of every liberating human pursuit from reasoned inquiry to sexual passion. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be.

Newspeak, doublethink, thoughtcrime--in 1984, George Orwell created a whole vocabulary of words concerning totalitarian control that have since passed into our common vocabulary. More importantly, he has portrayed a chillingly credible dystopia. In our deeply anxious world, the seeds of unthinking conformity are everywhere in evidence; and Big Brother is always looking for his chance. --Daniel Hintzsche
