Unfortunately I had to read this for class, so I didn’t get to enjoy it as much as I probably would’ve if I read it in my free time. It’s a classic though so read it and decide for yourself!

En spidende politisk thriller og kommentar, blandet med sci fi. Set i et historisk perspektiv er bogen unik fordi den allerede før de store diktaturer i det 20. århundrede, var en advarsel til fritænkende mennesker. Samtidig har popkulturen lånt mange begreber fra denne bog og dermed er den blevet ikonisk. Slutningen er samtidig skræmmende. Bogen er forholdsvis let læst, omend der er et stort stykke midt i, der blot beskriver samfundet og dets opbygning, og som samtidig gør at historien står lidt stille. Bortset fra det, må bogen betegnes som en klassiker.

It’s crazy how this book was written so long ago but still has so much relevance nowadays, such an amazing classic book that I didn’t know I needed to read until I read it!

10 from when I was an angsty teenager. Rereading 20 years later, and damn this book has some boring, lecture-heavy moments.
Still, the world created and the government machinations laid the framework for a million dystopian thoughtpieces.

1984 is perhaps one of the most relevant books of today and it expertly shows the struggle of disliking the Society one lives in.
A book everyone should read at least once in their lifetime.

Orwell's 1984 becomes more and more relevent every year, with different themes being highlighted with each changing political climate. A book that really calls you to think about the reality you exist in. Pulled me back into the world of reading and fiction especially the classics.
Pretty hard concept to understand but when I read it in high school it definitely made me think differently. Would highly recommend.

I read it now to compare it with „Brave New World“ and in my opinion, besides both being dystopian, they are not comparable. 1984 depicts the dystopian world in greater detail and it‘s primary focus is the society and it‘s mecahnism (vs. meaning of personal hapiness in „Brave New World“). Great book to read especially in these time of data collection.
Absolute classic and just as relevant today as when it was written!
Definitely one of the books worth reading in high school.
Brilliant & a scary vision of a future that we could easily sleep walk right in to!
Thought-provoking and I also cried at the end for some reason
