《一九八四》,是英國作家喬治·歐威爾創作的一部政治諷刺小說,小說創作於1948年,出版於1949年。書中講述了一個令人感到窒息和恐怖的,以追逐權力為最終目標的假想的未來極權主義社會,通過對這個社會中一個普通人溫斯頓·史密斯的生活描寫,投射出了現實生活中極權主義的本質。它與1932年英國赫胥黎著作的《美麗新世界》,以及俄國葉夫根尼·薩米爾欽的《我們》併稱反烏托邦的三部代表作,通常也被認為是政治小說文學的代表作。 《一九八四》已經被翻譯成至少62種語言,而它對英語本身亦產生了意義深遠的影響。書中的術語和小說作者已經成為討論隱私和國家安全問題時的常用語。例如,「歐威爾式的」形容一個令人想到小說中的極權主義社會的行為或組織,而「老大哥在看著你」則意指任何被認為是侵犯隱私的監視行為。《一九八四》曾在某些時期內被視為危險和具有煽動性的,並因此被許多國家列為禁書。本書被美國時代雜誌評為1923年至今最好的100本英文小說之一,此外還在1956年、1984年改編成電影上映。

This book is hard to read and a boring in places. It likes to ramble in places and doesn’t always make sense. Despite this, it was a good read. It was amazingly set up, and it gets amazingly great toward the end, and just feels like the author knew what he was talking about. Everything was very meticulously done, and made you question things you have never even thought about. It was horrifying in the best possible way. The book was at least interesting to read despite pacing issues and long world-building segments, and has an important message that everyone should learn.

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.

A foreshadowing of 21st Century America. Scary.

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.
