    • SAXO's beskrivelse

      George Orwells dystopiske fremtidsroman "Nineteen Eighty-Four" har vendt op og ned på dens læseres verdenssyn lige siden den udkom i 1948. Og selvom 80'erne for længst er overstået er Orwells skræmmende observante fortælling stadig relevant i dag.

      "Nineteen Eighty-Four" er fortællingen om et fremtidigt London, hvor en totalitær regering vågent holder øje med alle dens borgere og styrer alle aktiviteter. Winston Smith arbejder for the Ministry of Truth. Big Brother overvåger alle og the Thought Police får stoppet enhver med oprørske tanker. Da Winston bliver forelsket i Julia, går det dog op for ham, at livet ikke behøves at være ensformigt og åndssvækkende.

    • "Ikke nødvendigvis en bog man skal læse, men giver stof til eftertanke - anbefales. En klassiker. "
