'Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.' Hidden away in the Record Department of the sprawling Ministry of Truth, Winston Smith skilfully rewrites the past to suit the needs of the Party. Yet he inwardly rebels against the totalitarian world he lives in, which demands absolute obedience and controls him through the all-seeing telescreens and the watchful eye of Big Brother, symbolic head of the Party. In his longing for truth and liberty, Smith begins a secret love affair with a fellow-worker Julia, but soon discovers the true price of freedom is betrayal.

1984 af George ORWELL (Author) (1949)

  1. 832
    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)
  2. 877
    Kammerat Napoleon af George Orwell (JGKC, haraldo)
  3. 726
    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)
  4. 401
    Tjenerindens fortælling af Margaret Atwood (citygirl, cflorente, wosret, norabelle414, readingwolverine)
  5. 382
    A clockwork orange af Anthony Burgess (wosret, Anonym bruger)
  6. 4112
    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.

Yet big Brother will not tolerate dissent -even in the mind. For those with orginal thoughts they invented Room 101...

One of my favorites. George Orwell turned his perceptions and concerns about nationalism into a deeply disturbing story that's surprisingly well-developed and imaginable. This book actually had a pretty big effect on me as a person; it was one of the first things that made me start thinking about politics and gave me a desire for a more just, compassionate world. ( )

Second Reading

Since I'm studying this for high-school, I don't feel the need or desire to elaborate on all of the meanings and implications of this novel, but will focus more on my subjective feelings towards it.

The first time that I read this was back in year 10, when I was around 15 years old. It was assigned as one of the options for school literature and I decided to chose it (probably because of some adolescent attraction towards everything bleak and dystopian, though the other book I chose - The Road - was something that I found so tedious that I couldn't finish it). Needless to say, the sex, violence and demented psychological aspects of the novel fascinated me and I found myself engaged with the novel throughout (I only remember periodically losing interest when a huge chunk of Goldstein's book was shoved into it). I would proclaim 1984 as the book that got me back into books for years afterwards.

Now, in my final year, I get to revisit one of my favourite novels and, surprisingly enough, I actually liked this less and The Road more (though they are so different that I cannot compare the two).

The first act and second acts were just as engaging as I'd remembered them to be. I was interested in the bland life of Winston and his deviant desires - which were much more interesting now that I know the political and historical context. I picked up a lot more than I did before, which helped me to appreciate it more. I do think that Orwell is lacking in stylistic presentation as many have pointed out, which really detracts from the experience and artistry of the novel. Still found Goldstein's book a bit difficult to wade through, but my main problem was with the final act - which was simply tedious at times.

Undoubtedly, 1984 is an important and thrilling (at times) to read. The love affair between Winston and Julia has a poignant passion which is probably my favourite, or what I find to be the most emotional, part of the novel. Though it wasn't revelatory per se, it was rewarding and interesting when applied to contemporary politics. ( )

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.

"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.
