1984 af George Orwell (1949)

  1. 877
    Kammerat Napoleon af George Orwell (JGKC, haraldo)
  2. 812
    Fagre nye verden af Aldous Huxley (nathanm, chrisharpe, MinaKelly, li33ieg, haraldo, Ludi_Ling, Morteana, Waldstein)
    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.
    Waldstein: 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)
  3. 716
    Fahrenheit 451 af Ray Bradbury (readafew, hipdeep, Booksloth, rosylibrarian, moietmoi, haraldo, 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)

    A clockwork orange af Anthony Burgess (wosret, Anonym bruger)
  6. 3912
    Fluernes herre af William Golding (vegetarianflautist, avid_reader25)
  7. 282
    Vi 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. 224
    Gøgereden af Ken Kesey (readerbabe1984)
  9. 192
    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. 111
    Brave New World & Brave New World Revisited af Aldous Huxley (thebookpile)
  12. 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.
  13. 91
    Gensyn med fagre nye verden af Aldous Huxley (pyrocow)
  14. 91
    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.
  15. 102
    Little Brother af Cory Doctorow (infiniteletters, suzanney, JFDR)
    JFDR: 1984's Big Brother is Little Brother's namesake.
  16. 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)
  17. 40
    The Archivist's Story af Travis Holland (catherinestead)
    catherinestead: 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
    The Machine Stops af E. M. Forster (artturnerjr)
    artturnerjr: If you read only one other dystopian SF story, make it this one.

Anyone that followed the leaks by Edward Snowden back in 2013 about the U.S. government spy programs surely heard that the world was slowly turning into an "Orwellian society". This novel by George Orwell is where the term was coined.

1984 takes place in a world where the world governments, or "Big Brother", control their citizen's every move. Individualism is illegal. Speaking out against the laws or government will result in your disappearance. Procreation is no longer allowed for pleasure but only for the creation of children and it is controlled by the state. An audio/camera system called Telescreens are installed in every home and monitor your every move (camera systems and hidden microphones are also positioned all over the city). Even your own children are put into programs and trained to report you to the authorities if you begin to even show a hint of disobedience!

The book's protagonist Winston Smith is a frail, tall, and lanky fellow that works for the state and is in charge of constantly updating and changing history according to what Big Brother wants changed. They control every aspect of the past, present and future and Winston is slowly starting to rebel against it all.

I enjoyed Orwell's descriptive writing and he does a great job at bringing the scenes in the book to life. He builds a frightening world and I found it to be immersive and interesting however I found that around the second half of the book there was a dip in the plot and the rest of the story didn't grip me as much as the first half did.

In conclusion, I thought it was a fantastic read. The setting is terrifying and we should look at this book as warning to prevent our society from falling to a world similar to this one. ( )

This book is the ultimate bullying government. Total control of your mind. It is cruel and depressing. ( )

Fascinating ( )

Thus ends my Orwell odyssey. I am glad that I read them in (mostly) chronological order. It was interesting to see how his writing style evolved over time and how his semi-autobiographical early works and life experiences influenced his later fiction, culminating in this prophetic, horrific masterpiece.

I know this was assigned in high school, and I'm pretty sure I read the Cliffs Notes version, because I couldn't get into it. After rereading it, I think that I wasn't mature enough in high school to truly "get it."

Holy hell, this book. I know I sound like this should be news to people. Obviously it's not. I'm very late to this game. But it truly gave me chills, especially in our current political environment, both in the US and with the rise of neo-Fascism in Europe. This is a really powerful read, and I'm so glad I finally got over myself and gave it another try. ( )

Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.
Winston Smith, his chin nuzzled into his breast in an effort to escape the vile wind, slipped quickly through the glass doors of Victory Mansions, though not quickly enough to prevent a swirl of gritty dust from entering along with him.
Citater
Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
"BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU."
"WAR IS PEACE. SLAVERY IS FREEDOM. IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH."
Freedom is the freedom to know that two plus two make four.
Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.
In philosophy, or religion, or ethics, or politics, two plus two might make five, but when one was designing a fun or an airplane they had to make four.
