Pretty dry (dare I say boring) read in places, but the discussion about total context manipulation and its implications still remain pretty scary and relevant

There are very few writers whose work has been so profound that their names have become adjectives. Shakespearean. Kafkaesque. Orwellian.      1984 remains George Orwell's greatest …

1984 is an essential book, not just for SF readers, not just for readers, but for everyone, everywhere.

It's been years since I've read 1984, but it made a huge impression on me.

One of those novels where you find yourself just fascinated.

The sort of book you never forget. The sort of book your kid has to read in school and you say "At last, here's one you'll enjoy."

Even after 1984, this book is powerful, scary, and relevant.

I read this book in High school. I loved it. Asa pol. sci. major it has made a big impact on my way of thinking and observing totalitarian regimes. This should be required reading for eveyone.

Before I read 1984 I had heard so much hype, I'd seen the Apple commercial from the 80s, and I'd read countless other books that were described with the words "it's like 1984". …

Really good and a book that would probably be good to have a study aid with because there is so much symbolism and meaning to this allegory. There are probably even some things I missed.

As I read this book, it started to become clear that this was not just a simple story about different animals and their lives on a seemingly flourishing farm. The plot is actually an elaborate allegory …

This is an interesting book. The author lends his perspective of how things would be in the future when he wrote this tome, which was, of course, before 1984.

It definitely drags, but it's definitely worth it! The last sentence is probably my favorite conclusion to any book.

I positively detest this book. I may not necessarily believe in prozac, but I could believe in suicide for Orwell's depression.

1984 by George Orwell is one of the best books of all time. The book is set in 1984 in a world of Big Brother watching. The world is very dismal and scary if one doesn't do exactly as he/she is supposed …

The amazing thing about Orwell is that he did nnot realize he was creating a new language. He was intent on explaining , in novel form, the dangers of totalitarianism, but he accomplished much more.
