TBR: 1984 by George Orwell



1984

George Orwell

Published by Harcourt, Brace & Company, New York (1949)
4.10 of 5 stars at Goodreads
Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell's chilling prophecy about the future.
While 1984 has come and gone, Orwell's narrative is more timely than ever. 1984 presents a "negative utopia", that is at once a startling and haunting vision of the world — so powerful that it's completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of entire generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions — a legacy that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.
This book is classified as my yearly classical read. With so many books coming out I try to add a classic to my reading list in order to be able to read them. A while ago, I tried to read 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. I struggled, though the start was interesting, but at some point I lost interest. And though I have not given up on it, I was intrigued by its origin. Which led to 1984 by George Orwell.

I've always been a fan of post-apocalyptic stories. The struggles of human kind for survival, discovering the truth in the depths of despair. Morbid. But interesting non the less when you are interested in the human psych, as I am. So this week, I will be reading this. Hopefully I enjoy it and hopefully it inspire me to read 1Q84 once and for all.
