More relevant than ever before, 1984 exposes the worst crimes imaginable-the destruction of truth, freedom, and individuality
Thought Police." "Big Brother." "Orwellian." These words have entered our vocabulary because of George Orwell's classic dystopian novel, 1984. The story of one man's nightmare odyssey as he pursues a forbidden love affair through a world ruled by warring states and a power structure that controls not only information but also individual thought and memory, 1984 is a prophetic, haunting tale

It seems to be out of copyright. This is a link to the PDF version of the ebook ---> http://www.planetebook.com/ebooks/1984.pdf

In 1984 I remember we had Reagan...there was a "war on drugs", "war on pornography" "war on the poor"
Survalence became very popular and Reagan allocated special money for local police so they could buy
weapons of war, black uniforms, armored cars (City of Santa Cruz, CA got one".

Super plus green for OP.

Great book -- this book and Brave New World really are eye-openers, both books really prophetic, way ahead of their times.

And now we have a "war on terror." Scared people will buy almost any line of bs, gladly pay for it with their freedoms.

This was my favourite book when I was in High School.

I think I read it about 5 times - watched the original B&W version of the film on a camping trip with my parents in Yorkshire and it took me decades to find another copy to watch.

You can watch it on youtube now

1984 Original Movie

If you love this book as I do then you should check out the novel WE by Yevgeny Zamyatin. It predates 1984 and Brave New World and is/was one of my favorites.

Double Plus Good Deal

Sales Of George Orwell's 1984 Have Surged 6884% In The Last 24 Hours

Zerohedge said: In the last 24 hours, sales of the 'big brother' book 1984 on Amazon.com have soared by almost 7000% as the reality of the surveillance state come to the public's attention. As Liberty Blitzkrieg's Mike Krieger notes, we suppose it makes sense that people would want to get up to speed on the dystopian world being constructed rapidly and secretly around them. 1984 is now the 4th fastest rising sales book and 184th most popular on Amazon!
