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
www.amazon.com - M.B Alcat
Eric Arthur Blair was an important English writer that you probably already know by the pseudonym of George Orwell. He wrote quite a few books, but many believe that his more influential ones were "Animal farm" (1944) and "1984" (1948).In those two books he conveyed, metaphorically and not always obviously, what Soviet Russia meant to him.

    The downloaded material bears NO resemblance to English. What I got was gibberish, possibly Cyrillic in nature.

    Don't bother, unreadable!!!

    As previously noted, the text is a seemingly random jumble of letters. It rates negative stars but the lowest you can give is one star.
