Thought Police. Big Brother. Orwellian. These words have entered our vocabulary because of George Orwell's classic dystopian novel, 1984. The story of one man's nightmare odyssey as he pursues a forbidden love affair through a world ruled by warring states and a power structure that controls not only information but also individual thought and memory, 1984 is a prophetic, haunting tale.More relevant than ever before, 1984 exposes the worst crimes imaginablethe destruction of truth, freedom, and individuality.
Category Description for 1984:

This classic by George Orwell made phrases like "Big Brother" and "Thought Police" part of our national vocabulary. It's a haunting tale of conformity and identity set during a time when the government controls not only information, but individual thought and memory as well. A common man, Winston Smith, joins anunderground brotherhood that fights against the Republic - he's an enemy of the state. The novel follows his rebellion, imprisonment, torture, and re-education. It's a compelling book full of subtle (and not so subtle) warnings about the power of government and the importance of personal freedom. A haunting and thoughtprovoking read. 294 pgs, pb.
