1984 is set in a dystpoian era, where there is no privacy. No one is spared from the eye! Eye of the big brother. Big Brother is controlling everyone while they are sleeping, eating, walking and even when they are having sex. But no one is sure if Big Brother exists or it is just a made up persona to manipulate people by some powerful people. History is being manipulated everbody knows that but does not want to talk about it. No one can trust anyone, not even their own kids. Big Brother controls everything. In this book there are some rebels like Winston and Julia. They fall in love and everything. They hide this from the Big Brother for a certain time. This looks like almost a cliche story about regime, governments and rising rebels, but my synposis does not do justice ti the book and I do not want to spoil this beautiful book for you! So please, read the book till the last page, which has one hell of a twist.
This book is awesome! Because it was ahead of its time but so close to reality. This book is a crawling out of the system kinda genre, how humans are manipulated by some specific groups of people and we do not even know what we are doing. Winston was a flaw in the system. How they tortured him and all was so horrific. Some words like, newspeak and thoughtcrime are nicely used in the book. I tried to understand most of the stuff like Orwell politics etc but I still missed most of it. It is very detailed and a very descriptive novel. I nearly got bored because I was thinking that this book is one about a chosen one the likes, a cliché, but no! The ending will shook you from inside. Writing style was great too! Little philosophical here and there. And the POV of Winston was amazing. I read last chapter twice to understand the ending. I still think my review cannot properly explain this deep and mindfuck book.
Just explaining this word in my opinion
Newspeak- By making paragraphs and sentences shorter day by day, it will cause less communication with each other. So they(humans) will fail to express their feelings and thoughts. And they do not have any creative thoughts to execute and in the long run, humans will not show any sign of feelings in them.
HOW SHOULD YOU READ THIS BOOK?
Slowly and with full focus because some words and paragraphs are so deep and confusing (it was for me.) So that you have to take some time for digest it
Written in 1948, one cannot help but appreciate the foresightedness shown by the author. Whatever mentioned by the author in the book is actually happening today in some way or the other. We see (though net and news channels) what the Govt wants us to see, we read (again on the internet and newspapers) what the Govt wants us to read. Facts are manipulated, misunderstood, misrepresented, misquoted and everything is done deliberately in order to benefit the Party to which a particular News Channel or Website is closely associated to.
Calls are tapped, messages are scanned and moreover people are being prosecuted for expressing their views on social media. If this is not a glimpse of what George Orwell had mentioned in 1984, then what it is?
People who like novels which have fairy tale endings, may not like this book much. But again, one does not come across such pieces of literature every now and then.
But I'll be rating specifically with regard to the Rupa Classics edition of this book which i bought.
On many pages, text printed on the other side is visible. The initial pages seems to come out of the binding. The dimensions of the book are quite small. Its quality is not impressive.
I really wish if I would have bought from some other publisher of this book.
Way ahead of its time, masterpiece by George Orwell.
Every reader must read this book once in a lifetime.
