As a dystopian novel, 1984 describes an imaginary and frightening world ravaged by constant war, creepily monitored by surveillance cameras everywhere, and dictated by a government that persecutes individualism and independent thinking. Winston Smith lives in Airstrip One, formerly known as Great Britain. Torture, brainwashing, incessant propaganda, and the literal rewriting of history books are daily occurrences.
If you’ve ever heard of the term, “Big Brother is watching you,” this is where it comes from!!!!
Fantastic book that is really relevant to current events like the Snowden Revelations. It’s amazing – read it. It will change. Your. Life.
