View our feature on George Orwell's "1984." Written in 1948, "1984" was George Orwell's chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, Orwell's narrative is timelier than ever. "1984" presents a startling and haunting vision of the world, so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions--a legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time.

If you have not read 1984 but have read other dystopian novels like Fahrenheit 451, Brave New World, Anthem, Erewhon, or even the Hunger Games trilogy or V For Vendetta, but want more of this genre, 1984 is a must!

Mind Control Madness

Customer review by Rilay

4.0 stars 12/14/2014 by Rilay

This book won’t control your mind, but it does have a lot to do with mind control. 1984 is a book written by George Orwell in 1949 depicting what Orwell believed that England would look like in the future. This book depicts a “Utopian” society that is ruled with an iron fist by the government who uses propaganda to control the population. Propaganda like “Big Brother is watching” is displayed on signs so that citizens know that the government is always watching and that the Thought Police are monitoring thoughts through “Tele-screens” (televisions). These Thought Police are used to track rebels who want to destroy the totalitarian government and bring freedom to the people. The main character, Winston Smith, works for the government but sees the injustices going on around him. Winston breaks little rules here and there like writing a journal even though this is forbidden by the Thought Police. Winston works for the Ministry of Truth; a government building that changes history by “erasing” events from the past by changing photos, editing books, and completely removing people from history. The Ministry of Truth does this to control the knowledge of past successful rebel uprisings. This is a great book that gives a lot of insight on what life is like in our society, even if we don’t recognize it on a daily basis. Orwell wasn't completely right with the date, however, I feel that our society is slowly reaching the point in which this book will no longer be “Fiction”. I would recommend this book to someone who is looking for a story with a deep history and speculation. I had a great time reading this and i think you will too.
