Description

Big Brother is watching you....

1984 is the year in which it happens. The world is divided into three superstates. In Oceania, the Party’s power is absolute. Every action, word, gesture and thought is monitored under the watchful eye of Big Brother and the Thought Police. In the Ministry of Truth, the Party’s department for propaganda, Winston Smith’s job is to edit the past. Over time, the impulse to escape the machine and live independently takes hold of him and he embarks on a secret and forbidden love affair. As he writes the words ‘DOWN WITH BIG BROTHER’, his personal rebellion begins....

George Orwell’s masterpiece is the definitive dystopian novel and one of the most influential works of the twentieth century.

Slightly monotone but fitting for the setting

Far more accessible then I was expecting, and slightly depressing in this day and age...

Terrifyingly premonitory

A vivid narration of a world so dark it couldn't exist, or could it? Who controls the present, controls the past...

Brilliant classic.

A timeless classic that's very relevant for our current era of new speak and the like. Faultless narration.

Wincott does an exceptional work.

Must read book and should be there in your library always. It certainly is a classic. What makes it more special his wincott's narration. You can literally experience the fear of the author. The book is timeless because how Orwell predicted it in 1949 and the same can be seen happening now. State surveillance.

Great book

What made the experience of listening to Nineteen Eighty-Four the most enjoyable?

I felt I was with the narrator. Experiencing the pain and horror. Experiencing the thought process. I enjoyed how different the story of this book is.

What other book might you compare Nineteen Eighty-Four to and why?

None so far. This book is pretty unique.

Any additional comments?

I had a great experience reading this.

Psychiatry summed up

This book was difficult to get through. Great voice performance. But if you wanna know what the end product of the psychiatrist is then it's very well explained in this book.

A Masterpiece

A great book. Some say it's dark or sad and I would agree with them, if I simply read it as a story and invested myself in the characters. The books seems be simultaneously based on past and future events. The past, where nation's simply disappeared their citizens who were deemed not loyal, off to forced labour camps. The future were nations are hellbent on spying on their citizens and manipulating the media to control public opinion.

Prophetic book, excellently read!

Loved it. Orwell is a modern day prophet with a clear understanding of the wiles and consequences of leftism. Narration was excellent!

Timeless

After having read 1984 in school many years ago, re-reading/listening it many years later gave me an entirely new feeling of understanding. I'm not sure if it's my age, my grown intellect or the changes in society that is providing me with this new perspective. All I can say is that I am convinced that this book should be required literature for simply everybody. Orwell truly understood how to write about an imagined future without relying too much on science fiction. Instead, he simply focused on the fragility of the human mind and showed the danger off overestimating one's mental strength in a system that doesn't only know about this weakness but build a society on it.

Impressive and frightening

It is a remarkable story and very frightening comparing it to recent developments in the global theater, who seem to have studied this book in great detail and decided it was a great idea to implement it in reality.

Sehr angenehme Stimme & einzigartige Story

Der Sprecher des englischen Hörbuches hat eine sehr angenehme Stimme der man gut zuhören kann. Vor allem in den längeren Passagen, in denen sehr viel erklärt wird, war das sehr angenehm. Das Buch selbst ist natürlich einsame Spitze! Wer eine gute Dystopie sucht sollte auf jeden Fall 1984 lesen und sich nicht davon abschrecken lassen dass es eine so bekannte Story ist. Denn George Orwell beweist hier wie auch in seinen anderen Werken, wie gut er den menschlichen Verstand, aber auch Gesellschaft und Politik versteht und das MUSS MAN GESEHEN HABEN.

Leider aktueller denn je im Sept 2020.

Sehr spannend und leider sehr aktuell. Vielleicht hätte ich es in der aktuellen Lage nicht hören sollen denn in den heutigen Nachrichten gab es fast genau die selben Meldungen wie von der Telimachine. Absolut Hörenswert besonders im Original if you know what i mean

More up to date than ever

Disturbingly, this book is so up-to-date that just thinking about a possible future like this makes one shiver. Altering the past is ever so easy with all the digitisation going on. And a president, sorry, party trying to tell you what's true and what's not is already the present. very depressing.

Great book and good speaker

I enjoyed listening to Orwell's masterpiece even more than I had enjoyed reading it some years ago. I liked the voice of the speaker which made the story easy to follow. Doubleplusgood!
