Reviews

  • By Zach Sylvester -

    The story found inside this book is of timeless importance. Critically analyzes totalitarianism and propaganda.

  • By Cody Harder -

    A classic of dystopian sci-fi that is still very relevant today. The oppressive theme and kafkaesque plotline are both compelling and repulsive, a nightmarish, totalitarian society not difficult to imagine. Don’t miss the interesting section at the end concerning the grammatical principles of Newspeak (the language of IngSoc).
