“ORWELLS LEAN PROSE, FINELY HONED POLITICAL DISCOURSE, AND PENETRATING IMAGES seem as fresh, as menacing, and as disturbingly prophetic as ever. With British equanimity, Simon Prebble accentuates every shade of gray in post-Blitzed-London….He is especially effective at subtly changing pace and giving weight to each characters most telling moments….1984 remains one of the most powerful and influential masterworks of twentieth-century literature.” (AudioFile Magazine)
“1984 IS A REMARKABLE BOOK; as a virtuoso literary performance it has a sustained brilliance that has rarely been matched in other works of its genre.…It is as timely as the label on a poison bottle.” (New York Herald Tribune)
RATING: We chose 9+ due to the political and social issues depicted in the story.
ABOUT: George Orwell depicts a gray, totalitarian world dominated by Big Brother and its vast network of agents, including the Thought Police, a world in which news is manufactured according to the authorities will and people live tepid lives. Winston Smith, a hero without heroic qualities, longs only for truth and decency. Living in a social system in which privacy does not exist and where those with unorthodox ideas are brainwashed or put to death, he knows there is no hope.
Requirement:Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch. Requires iPhone OS 2.2.1 or later.
