Nineteen Eighty-four – George Orwell
Nineteen Eighty-four is a novel by English author George Orwell published in 1949 as a warning against totalitarianism. The chilling dystopia made a deep impression on readers, and his ideas entered mainstream culture in a way achieved by very few books. The book’s title and many of its concepts, such as Big Brother and the Thought Police, are instantly recognized and understood, often as bywords for modern social and political abuses.
As is often said, Orwell’s 1984 was a warning, not an instruction manual. Today, we are drifting ever nearer to the dystopic society described in this timeless novel and is thus an absolute must read to identify, foresee and attempt to halt the concepts that prevail in Orwell’s masterpiece.
