1984|George Orwell

Overview

What We're Reading Now:
Although George Orwell wrote this book more than five decades ago, it was way ahead of its time and remains timeless. Unfortunately, Orwell predicts the problems this country will have if we continue to have unchecked population growth.
David Carter, Co-manager

1984 has come and gone, but George Orwell's prophetic, nightmare vision in 1949 of the world we were becoming is timelier than ever. "1984" is still the great modern classic "negative Utopia" - a startling original and haunting novel that creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing from the first sentence to the last four words. No one can deny this novel's power, its hold on the imagination of whole generations, or the power of its admonitions - a power that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.
