Description-

  • With extraordinary relevance and renewed popularity, George Orwell's 1984 takes on new life in this hardcover edition.
    "Orwell saw, to his credit, that the act of falsifying reality is only secondarily a way of changing perceptions. It is, above all, a way of asserting power."—The New Yorker

    In 1984, London is a grim city in the totalitarian state of Oceania where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be.
    Lionel Trilling said of Orwell's masterpiece "1984 is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present." Though the year 1984 now exists in the past, Orwell's novel remains an urgent call for the individual willing to speak truth to power.

  • DOGO Books risa_i - Animal Farm is about the Russian revolution that happened in the 20th century. The story is basically an imitation of the Russian revolution, but they changed all the historic people into animals such as pigs, donkey, etc. Throughout this entire story, there’s a deep meaning under every single words and it’s about how the animals drove Jones out of the farm and then started to be on their own, and they believed in Communism, which is known as Animalism for them. Eventually throughout the story, it did not last at all. The pigs took the power because they were smart and fooled everyone that they’re the best and they’re right for most of the story. My favorite part of this story is when Boxer got took away to get killed instead of going to the veterinarian, it somewhat revealed that the pigs didn’t appreciate him at all. I’m very impressed with how the author is able to change a revolution into a entertaining story that students will be willing to read. This is an interesting story and I’ll recommend it to readers who’s interested in the Russian revolution.
