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.… (mere)

1984 af George Orwell (1949)

  1. 887
    Kammerat Napoleon af George Orwell (JGKC, haraldo)
  2. 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)
  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)

    Tjenerindens fortælling af Margaret Atwood (citygirl, cflorente, wosret, norabelle414, readingwolverine)

    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)

    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.

War is peace.
Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is strength.


1984 is quite a novel. In a nutshell, it's the story of a dystopian society in which an overbearing totalitarian government controls just about everything by way of controlling the present, rewriting the past, and squelching any opposition.

Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.

In a nutshell, it's a story in 3 parts.

In the first, we learn about the society in which our protagonist lives. In a few ways, it's just close enough to reality to really sting. We're nowhere near that level of government control, but the idea of what we read being manipulated to control the world are ... creepily prescient.

In the second, our main character finds himself a co-conspirator, has lots of sex, and finds there there are in fact fellow revolutionaries*! This is probably the weakest section of the book, since we get a book within a book, detailing how the government took power and... it's a really dry pointless read. That could totally be cut, in my opinion, withing changing anything.

In the third part, the government wins. Torture and re-education ensues and terrible things happen. It's not your usual ending, but it fits.

Overall, it's a fascinating read and I really do see why it's on a lot of high school reading lists, although I probably wouldn't make people read it (or most things) rather than letting them come to it on their own. It's certainly a bit heavy handed at times and (as mentioned) you could cut large swathes, but I still found it worth the read.

Random bit I found interesting:


"How many fingers, Winston?"

"Four! Stop it, stop it! How can you go on? Four! Four!"

"How many fingers, Winston?"

"Five! Five! Five!"

"No, Winston, that is no use. You are lying. You still think there are four. How many fingers, please?"

"Four! Five! Four! Anything you like. Only stop it, stop the pain!"


I watched Star Trek long before I read this book. Seeing this scene, almost certainly the inspiration for Chain of Command (from the Next Generation, season 6, episodes 10 and 11) was somewhat bizarre out of order. Fascinating though. ( )

Considerations of the quality of the writing, characterization, and plot are secondary in the case of this book. It earns its five stars on cultural significance, as well as for having one of the most chilling closing sentences in all of literature. ( )

As an HS English teacher, I've read this book every year for the past 3-4 years. I first read it in HS myself - not for a class but for leisure because my 12th grade AP English class was a bit of a letdown.

So, what's to say about this AMAZING book? It's a classic 5-star read every time for me. I am still blown away by the simple way Orwell conveyed the dystopia and sense of longing in his characters. The hopelessness between Winston, the Party, and what he actually believes. The imagining of a society so totally demolished by constant warfare, propaganda, constant government surveillance, and historical negation. Not to mention trying to figure out the doublethink the first time! One of my favorite in-class activities is one involving doublethink and Newspeak where the students have to interpret things...hilarious and frightening at once!

New readers may find this difficult to get into simply because the protagonist, Winston, is a much older character. If he were a younger man, they might connect more but it would also negate the emotional and psychological punch Orwell was getting at; especially with an older character who remembers the 'days gone past.'

It's literally one of those books that set the genre and a classic not to be missed. It also has a movie adaptation that is phenomenal starring John Hurt as Winston. [1984; d. Michael Radford, drama/sci-fi, R, 1:53m; released Dec.1984]

Publicada originalmente em 1949, a distopia futurista 1984 é um dos romances mais influentes do século XX, um inquestionável clássico moderno. Lançada poucos meses antes da morte do autor, é uma obra magistral que ainda se impõe como uma poderosa reflexão ficcional sobre a essência nefasta de qualquer forma de poder totalitário.
Winston, herói de 1984, último romance de George Orwell, vive aprisionado na engrenagem totalitária de uma sociedade completamente dominada pelo Estado, onde tudo é feito coletivamente, mas cada qual vive sozinho. Ninguém escapa à vigilância do Grande Irmão, a mais famosa personificação literária de um poder cínico e cruel ao infinito, além de vazio de sentido histórico. De fato, a ideologia do Partido dominante em Oceânia não visa nada de coisa alguma para ninguém, no presente ou no futuro. O'Brien, hierarca do Partido, é quem explica a Winston que "só nos interessa o poder em si. Nem riqueza, nem luxo, nem vida longa, nem felicidade: só o poder pelo poder, poder puro". Quando foi publicada em 1949, essa assustadora distopia datada de forma arbitrária num futuro perigosamente próximo logo experimentaria um imenso sucesso de público. Seus principais ingredientes - um homem sozinho desafiando uma tremenda ditadura; sexo furtivo e libertador; horrores letais - atraíram leitores de todas as idades, à esquerda e à direita do espectro político, com maior ou menor grau de instrução. À parte isso, a escrita translúcida de George Orwell, os personagens fortes, traçados a carvão por um vigoroso desenhista de personalidades, a trama seca e crua e o tom de sátira sombria garantiram a entrada precoce de 1984 no restrito panteão dos grandes clássicos modernos. Algumas das ideias centrais do livro dão muito o que pensar até hoje, como a contraditória Novafala imposta pelo Partido para renomear as coisas, as instituições e o próprio mundo, manipulando ao infinito a realidade. Afinal, quem não conhece hoje em dia "ministérios da defesa" dedicados a promover ataques bélicos a outros países, da mesma forma que, no livro de Orwell, o "Ministério do Amor" é o local onde Winston será submetido às mais bárbaras torturas nas mãos de seu suposto amigo O'Brien. Muitos leram 1984 como uma crítica devastadora aos belicosos totalitarismos nazifascistas da Europa, de cujos terríveis crimes o mundo ainda tentava se recuperar quando o livro veio a lume. Nos Estados Unidos, foi visto como uma fantasia de horror quase cômico voltada contra o comunismo da hoje extinta União Soviética, então sob o comando de Stálin e seu Partido único e inquestionável. No entanto, superando todas as conjunturas históricas - e até mesmo a data futurista do título -, a obra magistral de George Orwell ainda se impõe como uma poderosa reflexão ficcional sobre os excessos delirantes, mas perfeitamente possíveis, de qualquer forma de poder incontestado, seja onde for. "O maior escritor do século XX." - Observer "Obra-prima terminal de Orwell, 1984 é uma leitura absorvente e indispensável para a compreensão da história moderna." - Timothy Garton Ash, New York Review of Books " A obra mais sólida e mais impressionante de Orwell." - V. S. Pritchett

I've read this book many times, but this time I read it in Spanish for practice. Orwell is one of my favorite authors, and he has a very clear, direct style that translates well. This particular edition was Spanish, so I also got to dust off some of my less remembered grammatical constructions.

He leído esta novela muchas veces, pero esta vez lo leí en español. Orwell es uno de mis autores favoritos y tenía un estilo claro y directo que traduce bien, incluso la "Nuevalengua". Esta edición es española, así que tuve que recordar formas como el imperativo de vosotros. ( )

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

"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.
