9780140009729: 1984 Nineteen Eighty-four (Penguin Modern Classics)

1984 has come and gone, but George Orwell's prophetic, nightmare vision in 1949 of the world we were becoming is timelier than ever. "1984" is still the great modern classic "negative Utopia" - a startling 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 this novel's power, its hold on the imagination of whole generations, or the power of its admonitions - a power that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.

Product Description:

Published in 1949, Ninety Eighty-Four is Orwell's terrifing vision of a totalitarian future. Its hero, Winston Smith, is a worker at the Ministry of Truth, where he falsifies records for the party. Secretly subversive, he and his colleague Julia try to free themselves from political slavery but the price of freedom is betrayal.

Product Description:

One of a series of fiction titles for schools, this is Orwell's classic novel in which every aspect of life is controlled by the State. Winston Smith thinks he's alone in remembering an earlier time when men and women lived by instincts and loved with passion, but then he meets Julia.
