Description 1984 has come and gone, but George Orwell's prophetic, nightmare vision in 1949 of the world we were becoming is timelier than ever. '1984' is still the great modern classic 'negative Utopia' - a startling original and haunting novel that creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing from the first sentence to the last four words. No one can deny this novel's power, its hold on the imagination of whole generations, or the power of its admonitions - a power that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.
1984 - Customer Choice by Merel Thanks to my best friend I read 1984. I kept recommending Ready Player One to him and when he finally read it and really liked it he wanted to recommend me his favourite books, 1984 and Animal Farm by George Orwell. I read both and loved both but 1984 had a bigger impact on me than I thought possible! I was glued to the pages and didnít let go of it until I was done reading. I think this is by far the most intense read of 2015 for me and it has such an important message as well. Iím so glad that I read it and when I have kids of my own and they are old enough, I want them to read this amazing work of art.
