With a foreword by Thomas Pynchon

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

View our feature on George Orwells 1984.

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 imaginable—the destruction of truth, freedom, and individuality.

This beautiful paperback edition features deckled edges and french flaps — a perfect gift for any occasion.

Synopsis:

This new centennial edition is the masterpiece of rebellion and imprisonment, where war is peace, freedom is slavery, and Big Brother is watching.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 338-339).

A MASTERPIECE STILL:

I first read this book as a teen, it was a class assignment. I recently read it again and I'm still blown away by it. I don't know many people that have not read this masterpiece. It was first published about sixty years ago. In today's times it is definitely a profound and visionary book to read again. I assume that it is still recommended reading to students. It certainly should be.
