Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Newspeak, Doublethink, Big Brother, the Thought Police - George Orwell's novel coined new and potent words of warning for us all. It is one of the most brilliant satires on totalitarianism ever written. 'It is a volley against the authoritarian in every personality, a polemic against every orthodoxy, an anarchistic blast against every unquestioning conformist..."Nineteen Eighty-four" is a great novel and a great tract because of the clarity of its call, and it will endure because its message is a permanent one: erroneous thought is the stuff of freedom' - Ben Pimlott.


Shortlisted for BBC Big Read Top 100 2003.
