‘1984’ is written by ‘Eric Arthur Blair’ and published by pin name ‘George Orwell’ in 1949, the story is in dystopian world.
In this novel Orwell warning us against the dangers of authoritarianism. In Orwell’s world people are forced to believe in single ideology.
This book is trying to show how life would be like in the world of people who are controlled by government and no one is aware of truth.
When book was released in 1949 the cold war was at the height therefore proved to be popular, it was most popular with people who leaned towards the conservative side of political spectrum.
Unfortunately, Orwell did not live to see his book to become a success he died in 1950 at the age of sixty-four due to tuberculosis.
The story is in very intense environment and love story Orwell created is just beautiful, it kept me reading page by page.
This book is all about Power, Love, betrayal, fear and lot of other stuff, this is now one of my favourite book.
