Written in 1948, 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...

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 vision of the world, 1984 is so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the influence of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions—a legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time.

Should probably specify that it's an ebook in the thread title.

Why not both? Warning for some, template for others.

I feel like you need to read Brave New World and Fahrenheit 451 also to fully appreciate 1984.

All classics, anyone who graduated high school should have read these. If not, these are certainly must reads.

This should be taught in high school and be a mandatory part of education. This book is a safeguard against fascism.

Big Brother and the Ministry of Truth surely pissed on the gunpowder of the original book when making the movie.

Please read the book before watching movie.

They cast an unknown as the hero and Richard Burton as the villain.....

"That rifle on the wall of the labourer's cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there."
