1984 by George Orwell

George Orwell


Among the seminal texts of the 20th century, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a rare work that grows more haunting as its futuristic purgatory becomes more real. Published in 1949, the book offers political satirist George Orwell’s nightmarish vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor stiff’s attempt to find individuality.

@shanehoughton omg shane. 1984, 1Q84, an absolutely remarkable thing, the name of the wind (esp if you like GOT), margaret atwood's madaddam series, anything brian k vaughan (saga for sure), everything joe hill, less by andrew greer.

               

The author's dark vision.
