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.

Wish I would've read the reviews first. Shame on you Nook for not saying it's a translation of the book.
