One of the great classics of the twentieth century, 1984 is a startlingly original and arresting novel about tyranny and the universal struggle of the individual against the malevolent tendencies of the modern state.

Big Brother is watching you … 1984 is the year in which it happens. The world is divided into three superstates. In Oceania, the Party’s power is absolute. Every action, word, gesture and thought is monitored under the watchful eye of Big Brother and the Thought Police. In the Ministry of Truth, the Party’s department for propaganda, Winston Smith’s job is to edit the past. Over time, the impulse to escape the machine and live independently takes hold of him and he embarks on a secret and forbidden love affair. As he writes the words ‘down with Big Brother’, his personal rebellion begins … George Orwell’s masterpiece is the definitive dystopian novel and one of the most influential works of the 20th century. It is as relevant today as it was when first published in 1949.

'I read it again, and again … right up there among my favourite books.'
Margaret Atwood

'The book of the twentieth century … haunts us with an ever-darker relevance.'
The Independent
