9780141191201: Nineteen Eighty-Four: Anniversary Edition

First published in 1949, George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four has lost none of the impact with which it first hit readers.

Winston Smith works for the Ministry of Truth in London, chief city of Airstrip One. Big Brother stares out from every poster, the Thought Police uncover every act of betrayal. When Winston finds love with Julia, he discovers that life does not have to be dull and deadening, and awakens to new possibilities. Despite the police helicopters that hover and circle overhead, Winston and Julia begin to question the Party; they are drawn towards conspiracy. Yet Big Brother will not tolerate dissent - even in the mind. For those with original thoughts they invented Room 101. . .

Review:

This book makes you think This book talks about a future, not the sci-fi kind but the society at large in the year which is approximately around 1984, of which even the Winston(protagonist) isn't sure. The cruel party taking control over the human instinct through fear and hatred, manipulating the minds of its citizens through a process which enables the rulers to make wrong into right and vice-versa. The citizens of Oceania lives in the state of "doublethink" , a mental state which changes the very nature of objective reality. e.g if the party says that it's night during a sunny day, the doublethink makes you believe… --Abhiraj Jan 6, 2012

Classic read This is a must read for any student of politics. At this price, the book was a steal(the quality of the pages were quite good). Flipkart's delivery was in time (bought it using cash-on-delivery). --Ashwin Sudhakar Jan 4, 2012

I read this book partly due to the hype surrounding it on online forums/news aggregators (it's number two on Reddit's favorite books). But I should say that I am quite disappointed. The book has a single core idea which could be explained in a few words. Instead of doing this, Orwell wrote a whole novel in which he revisits the idea then and there. I found this incredibly boring - 2/5. Now as for the book itself, the binding is decent and would easily survive a few reads. The printing is clear and legible for the price. --Mr.Kumar Dec 17, 2011
