Summary

In an age of mass surveillance, 'total' policing and GPS tracking, 1984 is as relevant now as it's ever been.

1984 Summary

1984 by George Orwell

April, 1984. Winston Smith thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love. But Big Brother is watching him, and the door to Room 101 can swing open in the blink of an eye. Its ideas have become our ideas, and Orwell's fiction is often said to be our reality. The definitive book of the 20th century is re-examined in a radical new adaptation exploring why Orwell's vision of the future is as relevant as ever.
