One of the greatest works of the 20th century. Orwell's dystopian vision is frightening, all-encompassing, depressing, and yet a rallying cry against totalitarianism. The impact this book has had on society can simply not be understated: "Big Brother", "doublethink", "newspeak"...all have their origins here. The very term "Orwellian" is derived from it's impact. Worth reading by anyone.
