Description of this Book

Winston Smith is trapped in a totalitarian world from which there is no escape. Big Brother, the leader of Oceania, is on every telescreen - and telescreens are two-way devices, through which the State monitors every one of its citizens. The State routinely changes history to fit its own convenience - Winston is one of the rewriters - and is implementing a new language called Newspeak, in which political deviance is simply inexpressible. Not even rebellious thoughts are tolerated. Against this backdrop, Winston attempts to revolt. He writes seditious thoughts in an illegal diary, has an affair with a woman despite the urgings of the Anti-Sex League, and attempts to join an underground rebellion. Alas, the State has anticipated everything, and Winston is brainwashed back into perfect conformity - to our horror.
