«1984» — роман-антиутопия Джорджа Оруэлла, изданный в 1949 году. Название романа, его терминология и даже имя автора впоследствии стали нарицательными и употребляются для обозначения общественного уклада, напоминающего описанный в романе «1984» тоталитарный режим. Произведение неоднократно становилось жертвой цензуры в социалистических странах и объектом критики со стороны левых кругов на Западе. Роман «1984», наряду с такими произведениями, как «Мы» Евгения Ивановича Замятина, «О дивный новый мир» Олдоса Хаксли и «451 градус по Фаренгейту» Рэя Брэдбери, считается одним из известнейших произведений в жанре антиутопии.

El autor ha sido capaz de crear una utopía cada vez más cercana a la realidad.

Although George Orwell is a pessismist author, his book presents how the human beings can degrade themselves for power, power for power itself.

A história é muito boa, mas o livro fica é muito descritivo e acaba ficando repetitivo demais.

So, 1984 it was. When I finished this book, I had this brilliant idea of writing a long, well-thought and insightful killer-review. But whenever I sat down, starting to type, I just couldn't do it. Thoughts would rush through my brain, exploding like bombs. So I'll keep it simple: Please read this book. It will be a painful, horrible, somewhat disgusting experience. It will hurt. It may haunt you. It may scare you. Maybe it will come to your pillow. Maybe you will get a little paranoid for a couple of days, looking over your shoulder more often than you would usually do. But worst of all, it will make you question everything. And that is so important. Now, maybe more than ever. And you know what's even more worse? People told me, that they had this "Now maybe more than ever"-thought 20 years ago. And 25 years ago. And 30 years ago. So please, read this. In it's unpleasent way, it's brilliant.

Das gruseligste Buch, welches ich jemals gelesen habe. Wenn Orwell wüsste, wie nah er mit seinem Buch der zukünftigen Realität gekommen ist. Beim Thema Überwachung wird sein Buch ja noch um damals schier unvorstellbare Dimensionen übertroffen. Jedem nur zu empfehlen.
