Nineteen Eighty-Four

by George Orwell
£7.99   paperback  Penguin Books (2004)

Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell Hidden away in the Record Department of the sprawling Ministry of Truth, Winston Smith skilfully rewrites the past to suit the needs of the Party.
 
Yet he inwardly rebels against the totalitarian world he lives in, which demands absolute obedience and controls him through the all-seeing telescreens and the watchful eye of Big Brother, symbolic head of the Party.
 
In his longing for truth and liberty, Smith begins a secret love affair with a fellow worker, Julia, but soon discovers the true price of freedom is betrayal.

"The book of the twentieth century... haunts us with an ever-darker relevance."
(Independent)
