About this item


About the Book

Satire on the possible horrors of a totalitarian regime in England in 1984.

Book Synopsis

Written more than 70 years ago, 1984 was George Orwell's chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, his dystopian vision of a government that will do anything to control the narrative is timelier than ever...

- Nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read -

"The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command."

Winston Smith toes the Party line, rewriting history to satisfy the demands of the Ministry of Truth. With each lie he writes, Winston grows to hate the Party that seeks power for its own sake and persecutes those who dare to commit thoughtcrimes. But as he starts to think for himself, Winston can't escape the fact that Big Brother is always watching...

A startling and haunting novel, 1984 creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the novel's hold on the imaginations of whole generations, or the power of its admonitions--a power that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.

About The Author

George Orwell (pseudonym for Eric Blair [1903-50]) was born in Bengal and educated at Eton; after service with the Indian Imperial Police in Burma, he returned to Europe to earn his living penning novels and essays. He was essentially a political writer who focused his attention on his own times, a man of intense feelings and intense hates. An opponent of totalitarianism, he served in the Loyalist forces in the Spanish Civil War. Besides his classic Animal Farm, his works include a novel based on his experiences as a colonial policeman, Burmese Days, two firsthand studies of poverty, Down and Out in Paris and London and The Road to Wigan Pier, an account of his experiences in the Spanish Civil War, Homage to Catalonia; and the extraordinary novel of political prophecy whose title became part of our language, 1984.

Buying for student class assignment, teacher very specific on which edition/cover needed for class assignment. The book cover pictured on Target website is not the book that we received therefore not able to use for class assignment. Will be returning book. Waste of time. Target needs to update their website!

Only 3 stars because I ordered this book online thinking I would get the exact cover shown here. I prefer this white and blue cover but I received the book with red cover, totally different than what is pictured here. I hope Target update their pics here. They also need to stop putting discount stickers on the book covers!

I ordered this book so I could add it to my book shelf so when people come over they’ll think I am well read. Very pretty cover which is why I ordered but I got a different book so that’s upsetting. I will still put it on my shelf and maybe somebody will read it

I am re-reading this book along with my High School daughter. The themes are relevant to today's world and it is captivating. Very thought provoking. My daughter noted some similarities to Fahrenheit 451. While the distopian themes share resemblance, F-451 introduces concepts that 1984 take to high-school/adult levels. I highly recommend.
