Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984) by George Orwell

Updated: May 25, 2009

Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984) by George OrwellIn many ways Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984) by George Orwell in 1949 is like an interesting thought experiment about what people with too much control might do and how it would shape society, politics, and individual people’s lives. And by too much power I am referring to a grave imbalance of power shifted from the people to a few “chosen” individuals. Sure, there have been people such as Stalin who tried to make something along the same lines happen but it has turned out nothing like what Orwell is portraying. Though contextually maybe not as relevant as it was when it was first published, the wealth of information and topics being addressed in this little book are in many ways timeless and should not be missed.

Nineteen Eighty-Four addresses issues from human nature as who we are, what we want, and what extreme horrors we are capable of to social struggles of dominance, scrupulous political savagery, and ideological supremacy. No doubt, this is a dark portrayal of the future and in many ways a warning message and reminder from George Orwell to society. In addition it is also written in a stimulating style that carried me from cover to cover in a matter of hours.

I have to admit, it took countless recommendations of Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984), especially by a very good friend, until I finally got my act together and read George Orwell’s masterpiece. It is a true classic. Well, it’s not like I know what I am talking about since I haven’t read most of the countless so called classics out there. Or at least not yet. Either way I would label this book as a must read.
