Short Description:
   

With extraordinary relevance and renewed popularity, George Orwell's 1984 takes on new life in this hardcover edition.
"Orwell saw, to his credit, that the act of falsifying reality is only secondarily a way of changing perceptions. It is, above all, a way of asserting power."—The New Yorker

In 1984, London is a grim city in the totalitarian state of Oceania where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party.

George Orwell's 1984 takes on new life with extraordinary relevance and renewed popularity.
"Orwell saw, to his credit, that the act of falsifying reality is only secondarily a way of changing perceptions. It is, above all, a way of asserting power."—The New Yorker

In 1984, London is a grim city in the totalitarian state of Oceania where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be.
Lionel Trilling said of Orwell's masterpiece, "1984 is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present." Though the year 1984 now exists in the past, Orwell's novel remains an urgent call for the individual willing to speak truth to power.

  DOGO Books
      edmodo-wzjpfyq5dn - The book was another great book by George Orwell. Orwell presents a place where the government is dictatorial and watches over every little thing you do and wants to control everything each citizen does. Two people in love despise the government and join a group, the Brotherhood against the government trusting in who they thought was a part of the brotherhood they are sent to admit to their crimes. The man is faced with his fear of rats and is placed with them but finally he cant take it and tells the government to give the rats to "his love". In the end he comes out as someone who appreciates the government and has no feelings for his former love.
