1984 af George Orwell (1949)

  1. 852
    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)
  2. 877
    Kammerat Napoleon af George Orwell (JGKC, hpfilho)
  3. 746
    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)
  4. 411
    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. 292
    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. 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. 207
    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. 40
    The Machine Stops af E. M. Forster (artturnerjr)
    artturnerjr: If you read only one other dystopian SF story, make it this one.
  16. 51
    The Circle af Dave Eggers (JuliaMaria)
  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)

4.5 but i'll round up!
i last read this in high school, so it has been a while. i appreciated it much more this time around because i'm no longer 16 years old. ( )

This is a book as old as I am (1949). It’s one of the many important books that I had not read but felt I should have read, although there are aspects of it that I’ve managed to vaguely absorb (big brother, newspeak).

I found this novel repellent, with Winston an unattractive protagonist. The skin-deep love story in a dystopian world of institutionalised torture and disappearance is neither sexy nor enticing. There is an underlying sado-masochistic delight that I found distasteful. Winston’s attraction to Julia arises from sadistic fantasy and his submission to O’Brien’s sadistic torture has a masochistic inevitability to it. As O’Brien himself says,
We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes a revolution in order to establish a dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. (p. 276)

Predictive novels are usually more about the present than the future and Nineteen Eighty-Four is no exception. So, it is not surprising that 1984 has been and gone without realisation, Mind you, Trump’s alternative facts or his method of fabricating fact-through-assertion and Xiang Ping’s reinvention of the Party in China make one wonder.

The emphasis Orwell places on control of language is most detailed in the Appendix but it’s also curiously unconvincing. Is this because language is a wilder beast than institutions are capable of controlling? Nevertheless, the way such insidious terms like human resources, efficiency dividend, let him go, have entered the language, point to more subtle mechanisms of control.

I found this book deeply flawed and unpleasant to read. ( )

Terrifying. On the surface, it seems like pure fiction and unrealistic, but even just a basic level of deeper thinking let's you see how real this future could become, how quickly our society could develop into this. Even more so now than when it was first written. With the Internet, smart phones and all the smart products around us, we essentially are being watched and listened to at all times, it is not a far leap to see how this could turn into a way to force compliance to societal or government demands. I think it is also terrifying to see how easily the party members accept it all, with little thought of upsetting the norms. It is easy to imagine groups today being swept into group hates and desire to see others punished, in many ways, we are already there. But today there are many more small groups of focused hate for many different people and subjects, if the hate became unified against only a few subjects, 1984 could easily become reality ( )

I had a hard time getting through this book, and ultimately didn't finish it. I got to around page 100 until I stopped reading it. I just couldn't get into Winstons POV and the way the book is written. Maybe in the future I will give it a new try, but as of now, it will most likely gather dust on my bookshelf. ( )

But writing a book like 1984, which is violent, misogynist, sadistic, grim, paranoid: that comes out of a writer’s flaws.
tilføjet af vibesandall | RedigerThe Telegraph (Oct 15, 2023)
In conclusion, 1984 is not the pinnacle of dystopian novels. The insufficiency of Orwell’s writing, the blandness of the characters and the inappropriate content make this book just plain bad.

"We get Arthur Calder-Marshall’s attack, in Reynolds News, on Orwell’s book and character"
tilføjet af vibesandall | RedigerReynolds News, Arthur Calder-Marshall (Jun 22, 2019)
You don’t need to be Will Self to find fault with Orwell’s novel...It must surely be possible that the book can be both mediocre and brilliant, deeply flawed and enduringly great?
tilføjet af vibesandall | RedigerThe Guardian, Sam Jordison (Nov 18, 2014)
George Orwell's handling of his main female character in 1984 is clichéd, clumsy, and not a little sexist.
