1984 by George Orwell

Into the Wild

Read 1984 Online Free - The year 1984 has come and gone, but George Orwell's prophetic, nightmarish vision in 1949 of the world we were becoming is timelier than ever. 1984 is still the great modern classic of "negative utopia" -a startlingly original and haunting novel that creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing, from the first sentence to the last four words. No one can deny the novel's hold on the imaginations of whole generations, or the power of its admonitions -a power that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.

WAR IS PEACE. FREEDOM IS SLAVERY. IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH. Those words keep sounding in my head since I read this book. Gosh, probably the most haunting not to mention frightening book I've ever read. 1984 should also be included in the horror genre. 1984 describes a Utopia. Not Thomas More's version o...

In George Orwell's 1984, Winston Smith is an open source developer who writes his code offline because his ISP has installed packet sniffers that are regulated by the government under the Patriot Act. It's really for his own protection, though. From, like, terrorists and DVD pirates and stuff. Li...

1984 is not a particularly good novel, but it is a very good essay. On the novel front, the characters are bland and you only care about them because of the awful things they live through. As a novel all the political exposition is heavyhanded, and the message completely overrides any sense of st...

This book is far from perfect. Its characters lack depth, its rhetoric is sometimes didactic, its plot (well, half of it anyway) was lifted from Zumyatin’s We, and the lengthy Goldstein treatise shoved into the middle is a flaw which alters the structure of the novel like a scar disfigures a face...

It's written 1948? Clearly History has its twisted ways to repeat itself.. A Note that MUST be written in the cover of every edition.. لم اتوقع أن هذا التحذير "إن هذه الرواية تحذير وليست بدليل" بهذه الواقعية، مازالت الحكومات العربية تراقب الجميع لحماية أمن الحكام..بينما مازال أمن الأفراد هزيلا..من...

هذه الرواية لا يجب أن تصنف أدبا ورواية وفنا وحسب .. كلا .. هي أكبر من ذلك, يجب أن تدرس كحالة مستعصية في علم الاجتماع وعلم السياسة .. ! عندما كتب جورج أورويل في الـ1949 كان متشائما لدرجة بعيدة لما سيؤول له العالم بعد 1984 نعم، ربما لم يتحقق ما قاله أورويل تماما، لكنه قد حصل بصورة موازية وشبيهة في كثي...

حدثني عن القهر عن الاستعباد عن الذل ثم حدثني بأدق التفاصيل عن مراحل تقويض الكائن الانساني حدثني كثيرا وطويلا كي أعي هذا الدمار كي أتشربه كي أدميه في لحمي وأعصابي نصلا حادا طويلا كي أنزف روحي بكاء كي أتعلم شيئا نافعا قبل أن أغادر هذا العالم البائس حدثني يا أورويل فما أشهى وجع حديثك وما أشهى ألم المعرفة النا...

I am a big fan of speculative fiction and in my literary travels I have encountered a myriad of dystopias, anti-utopias and places and societies that make one want to scream and..... ...(with or without contemporaneous loss of bladder and other bodily functions).... Simply put, George Orwell's 1...

YOU. ARE. THE. DEAD. Oh my God. I got the chills so many times toward the end of this book. It completely blew my mind. It managed to surpass my high expectations AND be nothing at all like I expected. Or in Newspeak "Double Plus Good." Let me preface this with an apology. If I sound stunningly in...

I've put off writing a review for 1984 because it's simply too daunting to do so. I liked 1984 even better after a second reading (bumping it up from a 4 star to a 5 star) because I think that, given the complexity of the future created by Orwell, multiple readings may be needed to take it all in...
