Product description

THE dystopian masterpiece: never scarier, never bettered. Big Brother. Room 101. Terror. Control. Power. What is truth? It’s what the people in charge say it is. So every day, civil servant Winston Smith goes to work in the Ministry of Truth, rewriting the past to suit the Party. He’s a cog in a machine. The machine is the Party: rewriting history to serve itself; watching everything you do through its all-seeing eyes. The truth is what the Party says it is. The future is a black boot stomped in your face. And resistance is futile…

  • The iconic final masterpiece of literary legend George Orwell
  • A dark political parable set in a ruthless totalitarian future
  • The book that invented Big Brother and the Thought Police
  • “More relevant to today than almost any other book” – Jo Brand

This book contains mature content and themes more suitable for older readers.

    A classic but not brilliant

    I had high hopes for this book as a pretty confident 14 year old reader especially as it had been recommended so many times. However, perhaps I was too young but I found it pretty boring and difficult to read. I though it was no where near as good as Orwell's other book Animal Farm which I read in school but I know lots of people love it and it's been popular for many years. At least it's cheap!
