Why did I love this book?
1984 is truly a fantastic novel in so many ways. Written in 1948, it is a prescient tale about the world we find ourselves eerily coming to be in day after day with the advancement of technology which was imagined by Orwell so long ago. It speaks of a totalitarian regime that doesn’t only control the present, but they control the past, too. They don’t only kill people, they vaporize people, making sure they never existed at all. It has a very simple hierarchical structure of the proles (or the common people), the outer party (the main workers), the inner party (the society’s elite), and the notorious, unforgettable Big Brother (the party leader).
