About the book

4.2/5.0

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 nightmarish 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.

Orwell's 1984 becomes more and more relevent every year, with different themes being highlighted with each changing political climate. A book that really calls you to think about the reality you exist in. Pulled me back into the world of reading and fiction especially the classics.

I read it now to compare it with „Brave New World“ and in my opinion, besides both being dystopian, they are not comparable. 1984 depicts the dystopian world in greater detail and it‘s primary focus is the society and it‘s mecahnism (vs. meaning of personal hapiness in „Brave New World“). Great book to read especially in these time of data collection.
