Mil Novecentos e Oitenta e Quatro

Mil Novecentos e Oitenta e Quatro

Segundo Orwell, Mil Novecentos e Oitenta e Quatro é uma sátira, onde aliás se detecta inspiração swifteana. De aparência naturalista, trata das realidades e do terror do poder político, não apenas num determinado país, mas no mundo — num mundo uniformizado. Foi escrito como um ataque a todos os factores que na sociedade moderna podem conduzir a uma vida de privação e embrutecimento, não pretendendo ser a «profecia» de coisa nenhuma.

    This was an up and down kind of read for me. There were parts that I really enjoyed and parts that I found extremely difficult to maneuver through. I'm glad that I decided to pick it up and give it a ...

    YOU. ARE. THE. DEAD. Oh my God. I got the chills so many times toward the end of this book. It completely blew my mind. It managed to surpass my high expectations AND be nothing at all like I expected...

    “It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.”This changed the way that I looked at ideologies and changed the way I looked at leadership. Cynical, scathing, and not w...
