En el año 1984 Londres es una ciudad lúgubre en la que la Policía del Pensamiento controla de forma asfixiante la vida de los ciudadanos. Winston Smith es un peón de este engranaje perverso, su cometido es reescribir la historia para adaptarla a lo que el Partido considera la versión oficial de los hechos... hasta que decide replantearse la verdad del sistema que los gobierna y somete.

«Desde El proceso de Kafka ninguna obra fantástica ha alcanzado el horror lógico de 1984
Arthur Koestler ENGLISH DESCRIPTION "War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength". Winston Smith rewrites history for the Ministry of Truth, but when he's handed a note that says simply "I love you" by a woman he hardly knows, he decides to risk everything in a search for the real truth. This book is a dramatic adaptation of the classic novel.

Editorial Reviews

Mark Schorer
It is probable that no other work of this generation has made us desire freedom more earnestly or loathe tyranny with such fullness. 1984, the most contemporary novel of the year and who knows of now many past and to come, is a great examination into and dramatization of Lord Acton's famous apothegm, " power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrups absolutely. "
Books of the Century; New York Times review, June 1949

What People are saying about this

Anthony Burgess
1984 is a fantasy about disaffected journalists, novelists, poets, professors, and schoolmasters imposing an idealistic philosophy on the countries of the West — amalgamated into the superpower Oceania — which is no more than a notion of the nature of reality forged in an Oxford or Cambridge common room.
V. S. Pritchett
The most solid, the most brilliant thing George Orwell has done.
Alfred Kazin
1984 has been an extraordinary experience for me. It is...overwhelming in its keenness and prophetic power. I hardly know which to praise more -- Orwell's insight into the fate of man and its totalitarianism or his compassion for him.

Meet the Author

George Orwell (Motihari, India, 1903-Londres, 1950), cuyo nombre real era Eric Blair, fue novelista, ensayista brillante y maestro de periodistas. Podría decirse que su breve vida resume los sueños y las pesadillas del mundo occidental en el siglo XX. Nació en la India británica en el seno de una familia de clase media, estudió con una beca en el exclusivo colegio de Eton, sirvió en la Policía Imperial en ultramar (Los días de Birmania, 1934), volvió a Europa, donde vivió a salto de mata (Sin blanca en París y Londres, 1933), regresó a la Inglaterra rural y empezó allí el ejercicio de la docencia (La hija del clérigo, 1935), escribió sobre la clase obrera inglesa y la explotación (Que no muera la aspidistra, 1936; El camino a Wigan Pier, 1937), recogió su experiencia combatiendo el fascismo en la turbulenta Guerra Civil española (Homenaje a Cataluña, 1938), empezó a vislumbrar en la convalecencia posterior el derrumbe del viejo mundo (Subir a por aire, 1939), colaboró en la BBC durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, se consagró en el Tribune y el Observer como uno de los mejores prosistas en lengua inglesa (entre su vasta producción ensayística cabe destacar El león y el unicornio y otros ensayos, 1940), fabuló las perversiones del socialismo (Rebelión en la granja, 1945) y llegó a anticipar nuevos tipos de sociedad burocrática e hiperpolítica (1984, 1949). A pesar de su temprana muerte, se le sigue considerando la conciencia de una generación y una de las voces más lúcidas que se han alzado contra toda clase de totalitarismos.

I'm so glad I didn't buy this version because I had NO clue it was in Spanish. I'd have been so upset to have wasted money on something I couldn't read. So, if you don't read Spanish fluently, buy a different version, like I did! Just thought I'd give you the heads up. :)

I downloaded the sample of this book and it was in Spanish. Nothing on BN wedsite said it was not in English, except for the small print that gives the publisher. Good thing I didn't buy this one. Read the small print folks:)

Not English.

There is no way to know that this book is in Spanish until after you spend money on it. B&N should not allow trickery like this on their site. Do NOT get this book unless you are fluent in Spanish!

The description is in SPANISH....at least it is now. You should read the description of anything before buying.

Recomendadisimo!! El contenido de este libro es maravilloso. El rating de esta obra esta muy bajo nada mas porque las personas que lo han comprado no sabían que esta escrito en español. Aparentemente Barnes and Noble no había mencionado este detalle importante en su antigua descripción. Así que si estas buscando este libro en español, esta es una obra maestra que deberías tener en tu biblioteca personal. Definitely recommended. The book's content is marvelous. The work's rating is very low only because people who have purchased it did not know it is written in Spanish. Apparently, Barnes and Noble did not mention this important detail in its previous description. So, if you are looking this book in spanish, this is a masterpiece you must have in your personal library.

With all of the interest in what's going on in this society...do you really think this switcheroo with language was an accident?

Doent deserve a one star rating if you cant even read it! I'm taking French in school so I'm screwed!!! Sucks cause Bowie would have been screwed if he had a Nook. It is puzzling to me how the overview is in English and the book is in Spanish. In case the publisher noticed, we are not in Mexico or Spain! I am dissapointed because now I have a sample book in a foreign language that I have to archive because I don't want to see a cover pic of a book that I can't read. Anyone who agrees with me can find me on youtube MsWorkandplay is my username. Vent on my channel and you'll get a guaranteed response. TOO BAD THE BOOK I WAS ABOUT TO READ WASNT GUARANTEED ENGLISH!!!! X((

The comments on my Nook were written in English and said nothing about it being in a foreign language. I called in today and should be getting credit back on it.
