Portrays life in a future time when a totalitarian government watches over all citizens and directs all activities.

    Fagre nye verden af Aldous Huxley (nathanm, chrisharpe, MinaKelly, li33ieg, hpfilho, Ludi_Ling, Morteana, Anonym bruger)
    li33ieg: 1984, Brave New World and Fahrenheit 451: 3 essential titles that remind us of the need to keep our individual souls pure.
    Ludi_Ling: Really, the one cannot be mentioned without the other. Actually, apart from the dystopian subject matter, they are very different stories, but serve as a great counterpoint to one another.
    Anonym bruger: It's essential to read Huxley's and Orwell's books together. Both present the ultimate version of the totalitarian state, but there the similarities end. While Orwell argues in favour of hate and fear, Huxley suggests that pleasure and drugs would be far more effective as controlling forces. Who was the more prescient prophet? That's what every reader should decide for him- or herself.… (mere)

    Kammerat Napoleon af George Orwell (JGKC, hpfilho)
  3. 736
    Fahrenheit 451 af Ray Bradbury (readafew, hipdeep, Booksloth, rosylibrarian, moietmoi, hpfilho, BookshelfMonstrosity)
    readafew: Both books are about keeping the people in control and ignorant.
    hipdeep: 1984 is scary like a horror movie. Fahrenheit 451 is scary like the news. So - do you want to see something really scary?
    BookshelfMonstrosity: A man's romance-inspired defiance of menacing, repressive governments in bleak futures are the themes of these compelling novels. Control of language and monitors that both broadcast to and spy on people are key motifs. Both are dramatic, haunting, and thought-provoking.… (mere)

    Tjenerindens fortælling af Margaret Atwood (citygirl, cflorente, wosret, norabelle414, readingwolverine)
  5. 372
    A clockwork orange af Anthony Burgess (wosret, Anonym bruger)
  6. 4114
    Fluernes herre af William Golding (vegetarianflautist, avid_reader25)
  7. 282
    We: A Novel af Yevgeny Zamyatin (hippietrail, BGP, soylentgreen23, roby72, timoroso, MEStaton, Anonym bruger, Sylak, humashaikh)
    hippietrail: The original dystopian novel from which both Huxley and Orwell drew inspiration.
    timoroso: Zamyatin's "We" was not just a precursor of "Nineteen Eighty-Four" but the work Orwell took as a model for his own book.
    Sylak: A great influence in the writing of his own book.
  8. 225
    Gøgereden af Ken Kesey (readerbabe1984)
  9. 182
    V for vendetta af Alan Moore (aethercowboy)
    aethercowboy: The world of V for Vendetta is very reminiscent of the world of 1984.
  10. 206
    Jonas er udvalgt af Lois Lowry (cflorente, readerbabe1984)
  11. 122
    Brave New World & Brave New World Revisited af Aldous Huxley (thebookpile)
  12. 101
    Kallocain af Karin Boye (andejons, Anonym bruger)
    andejons: The totalitarian state works very similar in both books, but the control in Kallocain seems more plausible, which makes it more frightening.
  13. 90
    Mørke midt på dagen af Arthur Koestler (BGP, ivan.frade)
    ivan.frade: Both books talk about revolution and the people, individual rights vs. common wellness. "darkness at noon" is pretty similar to 1984, without the especulation/science-fiction ingredient.
  14. 102
    Little Brother af Cory Doctorow (infiniteletters, suzanney, JFDR)
    JFDR: 1984's Big Brother is Little Brother's namesake.
  15. 91
    Gensyn med fagre nye verden af Aldous Huxley (pyrocow)
  16. 40
    The Machine Stops [Squid Ink Classics Edition] af E. M. Forster (artturnerjr)
    artturnerjr: If you read only one other dystopian SF story, make it this one.
  17. 40
    The Archivist's Story af Travis Holland (Eat_Read_Knit)
    Eat_Read_Knit: Two very powerful stories of what happens when a very small cog in the machine of a dictatorship decides not to turn anymore.
  18. 40
    En hunds hjerte af Mikhail Bulgakov (BGP)
  19. 40
    Swastika Night af Katharine Burdekin (Anonym bruger)
    Anonym bruger: Huxley and Zamyatin are practically the canon recommendations for this work, so much so that they hardly need to be mentioned, let alone mentioned again.. Therefore, let me instead recommend a lesser-known work that likewise influenced Orwell's work: Burdekin's dystopian future-history, Swastika Night… (mere)

ripe with misogyny and weak critiques of marxist theory. most interesting part by far for me was the book within the book. ( )

Está muy bien, aunque se toma como referencia de lo que podría ser un régimen totalitario, creo que peca un poco de exagerar. ( )

Uma das obras mais contundentes e influentes do século XX ganha nova e definitiva edição com projeto especial e ampla fortuna crítica.

Romance incontornável, 1984 continua sendo o livro ao qual nos voltamos sempre que se mutila a verdade, distorce-se a linguagem e viola-se o poder. Nesta nova edição, a obra-prima de George Orwell ganha projeto gráfico especialíssimo ― com uma série de obras da artista brasileira Regina Silveira. O leitor conta também com apresentação do crítico Marcelo Pen e textos de gigantes como Golo Mann, Irving Howe, Raymond Williams, Thomas Pynchon, Homi K. Bhabha, Martha C. Nussbaum, Bernard Crick e George Packer ― ensaios que dão conta da história da recepção crítica do livro desde o ano de seu lançamento, 1949, até hoje, setenta anos depois.
Com dezenas de milhões de cópias vendidas em todo o mundo, o romance de Orwell tem como herói o angustiado Winston Smith, refém de um mundo feito de opressão absoluta. Em Oceânia, ter uma mente livre é considerado crime gravíssimo. Numa trama em que os "fatos alternativos" estão por toda parte e a mentira foi institucionalizada, Winston se rebela contra a sociedade totalitária na qual vive; em seu anseio por verdade e liberdade, ele arrisca a vida ao se envolver amorosamente com uma colega de trabalho, Júlia, e com uma organização revolucionária secreta. Normalmente lido como uma distopia, 1984 é também uma sátira, uma profecia, um grito de alerta, um thriller de espionagem, uma extraordinária ficção científica, um terror psicológico, um romance pós-moderno e uma história de amor.

A classic first published in 1949 - This either was a premonition of what was to come or a lot of what the author writes about was already taking place back in 1949 when the book was published and his novel expounds on the facts in novel form. This is “Socialism 101”. It was the remaking of human thoughts and ideas by using “doublethink”…reality control and erasing history, and erasing and covering up the lives of individuals.

Set in London, the government was divided between four Ministries: Ministry of Truth, who corrected or fixed the news and education to only what they wanted the people to hear and to learn; Ministry of Peace, who made sure there was always war, division in the country and chaos; Ministry of Love, who maintained law and order by “evaporating” (killing) any who disagree or found to be against Big Brother; Ministry of Plenty, who dealt with economic affairs, making sure the people are starving and thankful for Big Brother for supplying at least something for them to eat, and for supplying some of the basic necessities through the black market...which reminds me, be sure to stock up on razor blades...

Every household had a telescreen; Big Brother was watching and listening to their every move. And no household owned guns. Children were taught to be spies against their own parents, reporting them if they saw or heard anything suspicious, so it became impossible to discipline the children without fear of retaliation from the child, which meant death to the parent. Records and books were altered, rectified, falsified, every statue and street and building had been removed or renamed. The capitalists were taken down, businesses confiscated by the government…factories, mines, land, houses, transportation were now public property belonging to the government. With the development of machine production, it was no longer necessary for people to live and work at different social or economic levels. They could still work at different kinds of jobs, but for the government, all earning the same low wages, or starve. The mental training in early childhood was now proving itself in “doublethink”…black is white and white is black…2 2 = 5…to tell deliberate lies and actually believe them. They were changing the laws of language, itself. Eliminating words that could no longer be used. The new language was to be called “Newspeak”.

The story was actually a really good and interesting read and had a few surprising twists and turns, but I gave it a 3-star because there were 3 very long sections explaining how this government worked, which I hardly understood, and one was a never-ending dialogue between the main character, Winston Smith, and his torturer O’Brien. Otherwise, very interesting.

Now, step into the year 2019.

It's like the higher ups know exactly what they are doing and have read this book or read up on "Socialism 101", and they have been putting it into the works and changing the course of the country. And if you haven't heard about any of the things mentioned above already occurring today right here in America, then their plan is working, and you might need to change your news source. I don’t see America headed in the right direction. It will be interesting to see where we are at in just a few more years as the Milliniums take charge of governing this nation.

MOVIE: 1984 (released Dec. 14, 1984), starring John Hurt as Winston Smith, the leading character, and Richard Burton as O'Brien, the loyal Party torturer. I'm not sure how anyone can understand what's going on in the movie without reading the book first. The movie is sloooooow!

*Top 10 Classic Banned Books - challenged in a Florida school district in 1981 for being "pro-Communist" and having "explicit sexual matter." But, it wasn’t actually pro-communist as it was warning against Totalitarianism. The Soviet Union banned the book until 1988. In 2022, Belarus, a country bordering Ukraine and Russia have since banned the book. ( )
