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)

    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)

George Orwell’s 1984 is often known for Big Brother, the shadowy omnipotent leader of the country. Written as a warning against totalitarianism, 1984 explores with succinct details the horrendous fate that befalls a society subdued to this regime.
The novel shows how a totalitarian government, called the Party, is able to keep a firm grip on every single aspect of the individuals’ life. “Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimetres inside your skull”. The Party does not cease at merely controlling the life of the citizens, but it expands its power as to appropriate everything for its own benefit.
The novel revolves around the life of Winston Smith, an intellectual who loathes the Party and its corruption. Through the eyes of the protagonist, Orwell envisions a world where “WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, [and] IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH”, which is the slogan of the Party. Orwell shows us how it would be like living in a nightmarish reality. The citizens are constantly monitored through telescreens and hidden microphones. They are also subjected to a new language called Newspeak, whose purpose is to limit thought; and constant propaganda about the supposed enemies of Big Brother.
What kept the novel atop is its relevance to our modern era. It remains pertinent. It casts a light on a modern society and proves that stone walls or iron bars do not make a prison like not having the ability to think and speak freely. ( )

This was definitely eerie and disturbing. ( )

I can only hear about a book so long before eventually reading it. Although 1984 is known for it's totalitarian state where everything is watched by the government, what interested me most were the ideas around war involved in the book. The perpetual war idea hits closer to home now than anytime in our countries history -- with the Afghan war hitting 12 years. ( )

I was spared reading this in school, and only sought it out after constantly hearing it referenced as a comparison point for the real world. Sadly, everything interesting or thought-provoking in the book has percolated out into the culture, and the other bits left over in the text aren't worth considering. ( )

(27) I thought maybe this was a re-read. But it wasn't - surely I would remember this. This is an awful book - not awfully written or constructed but just joyless and depressing. Written in the late 40's I guess with fears of Communism in mind, this is really about the future of the ruling class. What could or will happen when power is concentrated in a few hands and realizes the truth: the point of being in power is to be in power forever, right? You don't install a dictatorship to protect the gains of the revolution - You stage the revolution, to install the dictatorship. Lines like this and many others are just haunting and present the ultimate cynical view of any microcosm of hierarchical society you want to apply it to. You can absolutely see why it was banned.

So in terms of the power of the novel's conceptions and the awful, awful imagery and despair contained within. Bravo! But one could really not 'enjoy' a book like this. I could only read in small chunks because Winston and the reader knows what is going to happen from the very first thoughtcrime.

One reason I chose to read this at this time as it is assigned reading for my son for his advanced classes going into 6th grade. 6th grade! Notwithstanding the sex and violence, I am not sure that he has the life experience to comprehend this. But when one has worked in a bureaucracy that tends towards socialist ideals like academia - every sentence of the first two parts resonates.

Anyway, this book is definitely 'doublethink' - read it as a student to stoke your fear of government overreach and authoritarianism regardless of ideology. And read it again after you have worked and lived in the world as an adult for several decades - especially if you are middle management. It just might make you laugh (ruefully) at the futility of doing anything but enjoying yourself! I am glad I finally read; but one star off for the feeling of relief at being finished. ( )

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.

Freedom is the freedom to know that two plus two make four.
