A dystopian novel about the totalitarian regime of the Party, an oligarchical collectivist society where life in the Oceanian province of Airstrip One is a world of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance, public mind control, and the voiding of citizens' rights. In the Ministry of Truth (Minitrue), protagonist Winston Smith is a civil servant responsible for perpetuating the Party's propaganda by revising historical records to render the Party omniscient and always correct, yet his meagre existence disillusions him into rebellion against Big Brother, which leads to his arrest, torture, and conversion.

As literary science fiction, 1984 is a classic novel of the social science fiction sub-genre, thus, since its publication in 1949, the terms and concepts of Big Brother, doublethink, thoughtcrime, Newspeak, et cetera, became contemporary vernacular, including the adjective Orwellian, denoting George Orwell's writings and totalitarianism as exposited in Nineteen Eighty-Four and Animal Farm (1945).

Great read. This is one of those books that should be read by everyone so they understand how technology can be used for malice and not just for tweets. It's amazing how many of the technologies used in this book our now common place (I'm looking at you Always Watching Kinect).

PS: "If you can read 1984 your not living in 1984"

There is an ever ongoing debate about which dystopia we are heading towards: 1984, or Brave New World. I think both.

Whichever direction we are headed, 1984 - and it's author, George Orwell - have always been my favourite.

A must read.
