Nineteen Eighty-Four: A Novel, often published asis a dystopian novel by English novelist George was published on 8 June by Secker & Warburg as Orwell's ninth and final book completed in his lifetime. Thematically, Nineteen Eighty-Four centres on the consequences of government over-reach, totalitarianism, mass surveillance, and repressive regimentation of all Author: George Orwell.

The foresight behind George Orwell’s book ‘’ was remarkable. Written inat that time it was deemed as kind of a loony sci-fi story about a country known as Oceania (in ) that had been controlled by an overbearing, paranoid government insistent on manipulating every aspect of the citizens’ lives.

I imagine Orwell was considered somewhat of a Tim Burton for his time. The Road to Wigan Pier is split into two parts. The first half - a description of working-class life in Sheffield, Barnsley and Wigan - is by far the stronger.

Another famous Orwell book worth reading is nonfiction, a book about his participation in the Spanish Civil War.

"The Road to Barcelona" describes his experiences going to Spain and serving as a soldier with a group of Trotyskyists and anarchists in their fight against the Spanish fascists, led by General Franco.

For years (from the moment of reading until now) I though that it was a reference to Soviet Union practice to name streets, places, cars and all kinds of stuff in honor of victory in great patriotic war (these names are still here: the university I study in is situated on the Victory street, and from time to time I ride a tram to the Victory square).

Winston Smith is the protagonist of He is the character that the reader most identifies with, and the reader sees the world from his point of view.

Winston is a kind of innocent in a world gone wrong, and it is through him that the reader is able to understand and feel the suffering that exists in the totalitarian society of Oceania.

The book reappeared on best-seller lists in earlyas some argued."The Road was the most crushingly bleak book I've ever read," wrote Tom from New York and many readers agreed with him.
