  • I noticed while reading this book that it is similar to Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series, which I also love
  • Dystopian novels are popular with readers today, particularly younger readers, and if you enjoyed such books as The City of Ember, Uglies, The Host, and Brave New World then I am sure you will love 1984 just as much, or more
  • I highly recommend reading this book, for it is truly life-changing and entertaining, and rarely a dry read

      George Orwell’s famous dystopian novel “1984″ is not only a great book, it is also a startling look at a possible future if we don’t heed Orwell’s advice.

      The novel takes place in the year 1984 in a futuristic London that doesn’t seem like London at all. In this world, there are only three countries, and London (then called Airstrip One) is part


      of Oceania. Oceania is under the strict rule of the Party and its leader, Big Brother. It is also constantly in a state of war, although its enemy changes every few years. The truly frightening part of this dystopia is the lack of freedom and knowledge. The past is manipulated by the Party to conform to their present will, so no one ever knows what has truly happened in the world. Telescreens, things similar to televisions except they can go both ways, are installed in every room, and citizens live under the knowledge that they are constantly being watched. The story centers around Winston Smith, a citizen who is secretly against Big Brother and the Party. He meets Julia, who shares his sentiments. They struggle to ...

      hide their love and ideas. I won’t give away any more, but be prepared for a shocking ending!

      The novel is a warning against putting too much stock into what the media tells us. Orwell is trying to get us to make our own decisions and never take our freedom for granted. I noticed while reading this book that it is similar to Scott

      Westerfeld’s “Uglies” series, which I also love. Dystopian novels are popular with readers today, particularly younger readers, and if you enjoyed such books as “The City of Ember,” “Uglies,” “The Host,” and “Brave New World” then I am sure you will love “1984″ just as much, or more! I highly recommend reading this book, for it is truly life-changing and entertaining, and rarely a dry read.
