«No creo que l. a. sociedad que he descrito en 1984 necesariamente llegue a ser una realidad, pero sí creo que puede llegar a existir algo parecido», escribía Orwell después de publicar su novela. Corría el año 1948, y los angeles realidad se ha encargado de convertir esa pieza -entonces de ciencia ficción- en un manifiesto de l. a. realidad.

En el año 1984 Londres es una ciudad lúgubre en l. a. que los angeles Policía del Pensamiento controla de forma asfixiante los angeles vida de los ciudadanos. Winston Smith es un peón de este engranaje perverso y su cometido es reescribir l. a. historia para adaptarla a lo que el Partido considera los angeles versión oficial de los hechos. Hasta que make a decision replantearse l. a. verdad del sistema que los gobierna y somete.

La crítica ha dicho...
«Aquí ya no estamos solo ante lo que habitualmente reconocemos como "literatura" e identificamos con los angeles buena escritura. Aquí estamos, repito, ante energía visionaria. Y no todas las visiones se refieren al futuro, o al Más Allá.»
Umberto Eco

«Entre mis libros favoritos, lo leo una y otra vez.»
Margaret Atwood

«No es difícil pensar que Orwell, en 1984, estuviera imaginando un futuro para los angeles generación de su hijo, un mundo del que deseaba prevenirles.»
Thomas Pynchon

«La libertad es una obligación tan dolorosa que siempre habrá quien prefiera rendirse. l. a. virtud de libros como 1984 es su capacidad para recordarnos que l. a. libertad de los seres humanos responsables no es igual a l. a. de los animales.»
Anthony Burgess

«Desde El proceso de Kafka ninguna obra fantástica ha alcanzado el horror lógico de 1984
Arthur Koestler

«Un libro magnífico y profundamente interesante.»
Aldous Huxley
