George Orwell describes a grey, totalitarian world ruled by Big Brother and his enormous network of agents, including the Thought Police a world where news is fabricated according to the authorities' wishes and people live lukewarm lives by rote.Winston Smith, a hero who lacks heroic attributes, merely wants truth and decency. But he understands there is no chance for him because he lives in a society where privacy is nonexistent and individuals with unconventional thoughts are brainwashed or executed.Even though the year 1949 has passed, George Orwell's nightmare picture of the world we were creating remains the great modern classic portrait of a negative Utopia.
