A classic masterpiece. Another book that deserves your undivided attention. Presenting 1984 by George Orwell.

Here is the summary of the book:

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.

This is the lord of all things dystopia. A relic of old if you will but definitely not a must read because not many have the patience to go through a classic novel and its long winding paragraphs. Now i'm not going to go in depth with this review because this is one book that you need to read yourself to understand the authors motifs and while all his predictions may not have come true for all....with a few exceptions to the rule but the Orwellian masterpiece is one you don't want to miss out on.

Thought crime, thought police or the concept of Big Brother, an entity that keeps a close eye on everything that is happening in the city. Well reading this you'll definitely understand where and how the concept of big brother and its adversary reality shows may have sprung up. Imagine a world where one single stray though can be detrimental to your safety. One single thought can be your undoing. 




Orwell really gives a new meaning to them with his penmanship. That famous chapter nine definitely cuts up a new, gives a new meaning to the hollow within. In a world overloaded by laws Winston maintains his illicit romance, the torture, the manipulation.....a raw power in the making.
