WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
1984 by George Orwell is set in a dystopian future which is not so far from our present. In both Animal Farm and 1984 Orwell has criticized the totalitarian and tyrannical forms of governance which tries to take away the power of reasoning from its subjects. Its was chilling to read each and every page because how can one even begin to imagine living in a world where thought itself is a crime.
I am not going to spoil much but as I said its not that far from our present. We believe we have the freedom to say and do what we want but in reality, we are trapped. We are constantly under surveillance and the fact is that we choose to be (remember clicking on agree without reading the terms and conditions). We instantly believe everything that we see on the news and social media. There is a buttload of propaganda and information we are fed through these channels. You have got to read this as it will surely change the way you see the politicians you support.
Can we please talk about this cover? It is by far the best I have seen and I absolutely love it. It perfectly describes the entire book. I also love the vocabulary of the book but I should say this that it is written like an essay or a long article. That’s why it took me a long time to finish as I was reading a little bit every day.
