Nineteen Eighty Four

George Orwell's vision of a dark future.. 1984 is a great modern classic of "Negative Utopia"—a startlingly 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.
