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.

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". …

coupled with a brave new world, you would have a good week of dystopian/utopian literature

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.

good one to check out, my father recommended that I read this one. It's a pretty good analysis of what is going on in the world.

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.

If government in the US was ever like this, then I don't know how we would survive. This book is somewhat difficult to comprehend and follow, but for the most part its good.
