Synopsis

Blackstone Audio presents a new recording of this dramatically popular book.

George Orwell depicts a gray, totalitarian world dominated by Big Brother and its vast network of agents, including the Thought Police, a world in which news is manufactured according to the authorities' will and people live tepid lives by rote.

Winston Smith, the hero with no heroic qualities, longs only for truth and decency. But living in a social system in which privacy does not exist and where those with unorthodox ideas are brainwashed or put to death, he knows there is no hope for him.

The year 1984 has come and gone, yet George Orwell's nightmare vision in 1949 of the world we were becoming is still the great modern classic of negative Utopia.

AudiobooksNow review by Deborah on 2014-03-31 16:44:47

This is a must read classic. I found it very disturbing and not out of the realm of possibility. I gave it 4 instead of 5 because Orwell likes to hammer home his points, but it kind of goes on forever and ever and in some parts is quite brutal to get through.
