“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever.”

BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU

''In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make the claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense. And what was terrifying was ... read more

"Winston smith lives in a society in wich you are watched and heard all the time. watched by big brother. Watched by the thought police. If you're the one who's standing out of the line I'll guarantee you, it's not going to be for a long time. How can you escape such a society in wich your memory, feelings and thoughts are controlled? I couldn't stop thinking about this book after i finished it. It goes right into your feels and makes you think about the world and the system we#re stuck in"

I'm going back to the classics. My first contact with this book took place about 15 years ago, when this item included in the list of additional readings during my education in high school. I remember that it was for me a period of treatment with the assumptions each book as a necessary evil that someone tells me to read, interpret and even ask more, what color pants had character appears once... I remember "1984" as one of the few books made for me then a huge impression and I would have never thought that I would be a fan of dystopian future issues. So I decided to go back to this story and read it again.

clumsyart posted a review 4 years, 4 months ago

“1984 tells of the bleak, oppressed existence of Winston Smith. He lives on a superstate that partake in a perpetual global war, working for 'The Party' under the ever watchful eye of Big Brother and the Thought Police. Smith's colleagues (and in fact the entire population) are fearful of any action perceived as being against The Party in light of the rumours of the extreme punishment received for such heresy. But Smith is unable to tolerate this controlling existence and longs for freedom from it. 1984 is a story narrating his attempt to escape as well as a telling dystopia that draws many alarming similarities to the world we live in.” read more
