THE AUTHORATITIVE TEXT

“It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.”

The year is 1984. War and revolution have left the world unrecognisable. Great Britain, now known as Airstrip One, is ruled by the Party, led by Big Brother. Mass surveillance is everything and The Thought Police ensure no individual thinking is allowed.

Winston Smith works at The Ministry of Truth, carefully rewriting history. But Winston dreams of freedom, and of rebellion. It is here that he falls in love with Julia, and starts a secret, forbidden affair with her – but in this world nothing can be kept secret, and they are forced to face consequences more terrifying than either of them could have ever imagined.

A dystopian masterpiece, this is the powerful and prophetic novel that defined the twentieth century.
