Description of this Book

In a world where cheap entertainment keeps the proles ignorant but content, where a war without end is always fought and the government is always watching, can Winston possibly hold onto what he feels inside? Or will he renounce everything, accept the Party's reality and learn to love Big Brother?

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 'Dunster - both in his faithful take on the story and in his sometimes extreme but always enthralling adaptation - gets close to the heart of Orwell's warning, pointing up but not overemphasising its current political resonances. Newspeak, Doublethink, Room 101 and Thought Police take on a chilling reality in this compelling production.' The Independent
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
