Will certainly be spoilers :)

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

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... read more

''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

“1984 é um livro escrito pelo romancista George Orwell, que narra um futuro onde a humanidade foi dominada parcialmente por um partido totalitário que espiona e doutrina seus cidadãos 24 horas por dia remodelando seus costumes, crenças, modos de agir e até pensamentos. Dentro da história nós é mostrado o personagem de Winston Smith, um homem médio responsável por um dos milhares de departamentos do partido. Winston em seu trabalho encontra Júlia que em um primeiro momento lhe causa a impressão de ser uma espiã do regime, Winston é seguido por Júlia até que descobre que ela possuía interesse romântico por ele, sendo isso estritamente reprimido pelo partido dominante que proíbe as pessoas de se relacionarem por vontade própria.Winston e Júlia passam a se encontrar frequen” read more

Kyle Ellis posted a review 6 months, 3 weeks ago

“This book is far from perfect. Its characters lack depth, its rhetoric is sometimes didactic, its plot (well, half of it anyway) was lifted from Zumyatin’s We, and the lengthy Goldstein treatise shoved into the middle is a flaw which alters the structure of the novel like a scar disfigures a face.

But in the long run, all that does not matter, because George Orwell got it right.

Orwell, a socialist who fought against Franco, watched appalled as the great Soviet experiment was reduced to a totalitarian state, a repressive force equal in evil to Fascist Italy or Nazi Germany. He came to realize that ideology in an authoritarian state is nothing but a distraction, a shiny thing made for the public to stare at. He came to realize that the point of control was more control” read more

" Subject: George Orwell's nightmarish vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor stiff's attempt to find individuality. In the face of pain there are no heroes. Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them. Being in a minority, even in a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad. Confessi"
